For this project you will need:

HOOK: 5 mm hook or size H hook for the US

YARN: a small amount of yarn. This is a great scrap yarn project. I used worsted weight yarn, 4 ply US, 10 ply AU


  • A pair of scissors
  • Card board from a cereal box
  • A glass the size of the pompom you want
  • Pen or pencil
  • Some yarn

Get your cup and set it onto the cardboard.


Get a pin and trace the cup – Do this twice


Now get your scissors and cut out your two circles.


Cut a slit into one of the circles, line the other circle up and mark it with a pin so you know where to cut the slit on this next one.


Once done you place your circles together.


Start wrapping your yarn around the circles, like a half moon.


DO THIS MANY TIMES until your circle is pretty filled.


Then take a long piece of yarn to use to tie your pompom closed, about a 2 feet long, and then cut your yarn on your pompom maker, meanwhile holding the yarn to make sure it doesn’t come apart form the card board.


Then use your long string to place in between your card board pieces and tie about 3 knots. Use this extra yarn to sew onto your project.
