easy mini-ponpons


Good thing my mother has a quite big stock of wool and yarn. We made some very easy ponpons. I used to make big ones as a kid- but they are a bit more complicated and for sure it takes longer to make them.
The girls loved to choose colours. Neomi started a mass production while Helen was still a bit small- she found it difficult to wrap the wool around the fork- so she just chose the wool and I made her the ponpon.

choose wool and start to wrap it around the fork
you can choose several colours to get nice patterns in the end
tie a tight knot in the middle with another piece of wool/ yarn
pull the ponpon away from the fork and cut the loops open
and here you go- already finished :o)

If you would like another explanation see here.
