Aunty Nise Comes To Visit
Yesterday Cherry’s Aunty Nise came over to play
Tea for two
Cherry showed Aunty Nise her newly converted cot-bed
How to make a pom-pom with Aunty Nise
Aunty Nise is one crafty chick and taught Cherry how to make a pompom.
This is what they used:
– 2 circles cut out from cardboard with a smaller circular whole in the centre
To make the cardboard circle templates, trace around a glass for the outer circle and around a bottle top for the inner circle.
Start by tying a long piece of wool around both of the circles laying flat together
Warp the wool around the circles
Keep wrapping around and around
To make a thick pom-pom, wrap another few layers around the circle. If you run out of wool, tie on another long piece. Don’t worry about the knots because you can trim them off later.
You can use different coloured wools to make multicoloured pom-poms
Once you’ve completed wrapping, insert the tip of your scissors in between the two cardboard circles and snip the wool all the way around
Slip in a piece of wool in between the circles
Secure a tight knot
Then remove the circles, trim any stray strands and hay presto, you’ve made a pom-pom!
