We describe in our guide how to make a garland of pompoms. Here are the required materials:

In the first step you wrap the yarn for the pompons around a small box!

Instructions: make a pompom and make a garland out of it

Wrap the yarn around a business card or cardboard of the same size. Do this until you have a thick layer of it. You can experiment with this stage of crafting. Try different thickness layers. This also depends on the thickness of your pompom! Decide for yourself how big it should be.

The size of the layer depends on the size of the pompons

Once you have wrapped the desired layer of yarn, take the scissors. Now cut at the desired location as shown in the image below.

Now it continues with the work! Next, cut another piece of yarn. In our instructions this is about 30 cm long. Pull this piece of yarn between the cardboard and the yarn wrapped around it. How to do that roughly can be seen in the picture below.
