Step: 5

TIE GIFT BAGS CLOSED
Tie bags closed with a bow or knot using left over yarn. Add pompoms for decoration.

Step: 6

POMPOMS

  • Make pompoms using the Boye® PomPom Maker and the same yarn as used for bags or #2 fine or #4 medium weight yarn as indicated. If you don't have a pompom maker, cut a piece of cardboard twice as long as the desired size of the pompom and 4" (10 cm) wide. Wrap yarn around cardboard approximately 75 times for #4 yarn or 150 times for #2 yarn (The more wraps, the fluffier the pompom will be).
  • Thread yarn needle with 8" (20 cm) piece of yarn. Insert needle between cardboard and yarn wraps at top edge. Remove needle and tie yarn tightly around all wraps. Cut wraps at opposite edge to form pompom. Shake pompom to distribute yarn evenly. Trim ends as needed.
