Directions:

Step 1: Grab your yarn and wrap it around your fingers. The more fingers, the bigger the pom!

Step 2: Scoot your yarn off of your fingers and tie a length of yarn around the bunch tightly. Make sure it’s tied right in the center.

Step 3: Now it’s time to give your pom a hair cut! Trim it as long or as short as you like. Make sure to leave the yarn tied around the bunch long. Don’t trim it!

Step 4: Thread the long yarn strands from the tied portion through a needle. The bigger the eye of the needle the easier the yarn will go through.
