Original pompoms in the form of flowers are sure to please children, especially since it is not difficult to make them.
Such pompons can be used for decoration or decoration of gift wrapping.
You will need
- - yarn of different colors-
- - cardboard-
- - 4 small clamp-
Make a cardboard blank with a diameter of the outer circle - 5 cm, inner - 2.5 cm.
The total size of the pompon will depend on the size of the workpiece. Usually the pompom is obtained by more than 10% than the diameter of the workpiece.
Cut out 4 semicircles with elongated ends-tabs, making folds at each end of the semicircle, so that it would be more convenient to fold them.
Make 2 semicircles of smaller diameter and glue them to the halves of larger circles.
Connect the two large cartons together so that between the two large semicircles there is an internal pasted insert, through which it is convenient, by inserting scissors, to cut the yarn.
With the help of each pair consisting of two semicircles one half of the future pompom is obtained.
Draw a future pompom on paper, drawing a circle separated by a line in the center.
Wind the yarn, starting from the center and continuing to the outer edge before folding the tongues.
Make the second half. In this version, the second side of the pompon is pure white, but you can make the same flowers on both sides of the pompom.
Fold all the tongues of the workpiece, connecting both parts of the pompon together, to make a whole ball, securing the tabs with clamps.
Cut the yarn with scissors through the gap between the cartons.
Pull the thread between the cardboards all the way around the pompon, tighten well and tie the knot, leaving a long end of the yarn for which you can hang or sew a pompon to some product.
Remove the clamps and release the pompon from the cards and slightly trim it with scissors.
