1. To make the pom poms: open the pom pom maker and begin wrapping your yarn around each side as shown above. When full, close the flaps and cut your yarn down the middle. Then tie a piece of yarn around the middle of the pom pom maker and open to release your pom pom. The final step is to trim up the pom pom to create your round shape. You can make all solid color pom poms or vary it by adding several colors of yarn to one pom, or make a two one with one yarn color on one side and one color on the other.
2. Attaching to pillow:
a. For a crocheted pillow: Loop the strings of the pom pom through the crochet, tie in a secure knot, cut and hide excess behind pom pom
b. For a non-crocheted pillow: Create your opening with your crochet hook, pull one side of your string through, tie a knot and cut off the excess.
