What you'll need
- Yarn in several colours
- Acrylic paint in matching colours
- A pom-pom maker
- Clear fillable baubles
- Extra ribbon or yarn
- Sharp scissors
Lock yarn into your pom-pom maker. Wrap 20-30 times around your pom-pom spool then snip and repeat with all the remaining colours.
Cut about 30cm of yarn of any colour. Thread through the bottom of the U shape on your pom-pom maker and bring it around to tie in a loose knot.
Slip the yarn off the spool then tighten your knot to secure.
Using sharp scissors, snip the loops all the way around making sure not to cut the string you used to tie the pom-pom.
Once all loops have been cut, trim until you have a nice round shape. Repeat to make 6 pom-poms.
Remove the tops from your clear baubles and squirt a small amount of paint inside, in colours of your choosing.
Replace the lid and swirl or shake the paint until it covers the insides of the bauble. Replace the cap. Repeat to make 6 baubles.
Leave for a few hours to dry, then alternate tying the pom poms and baubles onto your ribbon or spare yarn.
Hang and enjoy!
