pom-pom birds

Prices may vary instore and online.
Step 1

To make your pom-pom bird, first wrap yarn around your hand 50 times. Cut the yarn from the skein, then slide the yarn off your hand without disrupting the loops.
TIP: If your hand is too small, wrap the yarn around a piece of cardboard or something that is at least 3" [7.6 cm] wide.

Step 2

Cut a piece of yarn and wrap it around the outside middle of the loops. Tie a knot, then cut open the loops on both sides.

Step 3

Trim the ends so that you have a nice, round shape.

Step 4

To make the legs, cut a piece of yarn about 8" [20 cm]. Wrap the length around the middle of the pom-pom, making sure the ends are even. Thread about five beads onto one end. Tie a triple knot at the end, large enough to keep the beads from sliding off. Repeat this on the other end of the yarn. Trim any excess yarn.

Step 5

Wrap another length of yarn around the pom-pom to make a hanger.

Step 6

Glue wiggle eyes to the front of the pom-pom.

Step 7

Cut a small piece of orange chenille pipe cleaner, fold in half for a “beak” and glue onto the pom-pom.
