For you to note
- This project uses a fork as a pompom maker – ideal for their small size.
With yarn extending a couple of centimetres down the fork handle and holding in place with your thumb, take it through the middle tine to the back of fork, then around one side to the front.
Working from the base of the tines to the top of the tines, wrap yarn around fork until covered, then wrap back down to base. Repeat until you have covered fork tines entirely with several layers of yarn.
Using scissors, cut off yarn with a 3cm tail at the top of the fork. Tuck the tails into the yarn weave.
Measure and cut a 15cm piece of yarn. Thread through centre tine and tie off tightly at top of fork, this will be your hanger. Slide yarn weave off fork.
Holding hanger, snip through yarn with scissors around the ball until you have a pompom.
Thread yarn hanger through hole in wooden bead and tie off at the top of bead.
Use felt tip pen or Sharpie to draw a pair of eyes and a nose and mouth on wooden bead.
Use a pencil to freehand draw a pair of bunny ears on felt and cut out with scissors.
Apply a dab of glue to base of ears and attach to top of wooden bead in front of yarn hanger. Let glue dry.
Tie off top of yarn hanger, then hang pompom rabbit on branch arrangement.
