(Basic Finger Directions)

Forget about expensive store bought pom poms. Make your own. Here's how:
Start with some nice orlon acrylic yarn like Red Heart Super Saver Yarn
Wrap the yarn around your 2nd and 3rd fingers about fifty times.
Slide yarn off your fingers and tie it tightly in the middle with a small piece of yarn.
Take sharp scissors and trim off the edges, cutting all the loops.
When you're done you should have a pom pom about 3/4" to 1" in diameter. For larger pom poms use more wraps and three fingers. Experiment to find your perfect formula. Use the pom poms to create all kinds of animals, ornaments and other craft items.
Can also use a cardboard piece or a round wood disk.
