I remember making them as a kid and loving them, they're easy and super cute!
These are super easy to make and incorporate three different size pom poms, large, medium and small. They also use hair ties which I know most people will have lying around the house, usually in places you would never expect!
So to make these you're going to need:
A couple of sheets of card,
1 large ball of wool,
Various circular objects of different sizes,
4 hair ties,
Take your various objects and trace round them to make your card circles for the pom poms, you'll need large medium and small ones. Altogether you're going to need 8 of each size to make 4 napkin rings.
Cut your circles out and make them into rings like above.
To get started take 2 rings and put them together. Cut yourself a length of wool, make sure it's not too long so you can still control it.
Start looping the wool through the rings and layer until you've covered the whole ring a few times and so it's nice and thick.
Once you've finished looping it should be quite thick and will take preserving to cut through. Try using small embroidery scissors to make the initial cuts and then a bigger pair to cut through big chunks.
Pull the thread tight and knot securely then slide the rings off of the pom pom. Fluff up a little so he's nice and full and trim if any bits are longer than others.
Now to make them into your napkin rings! Take one hair tie and your three pom poms (one of each size) and use the long strings to knot them onto the hair tie, like below. Then trim the strings short once they're all attached.
You should end up with napkin rings like this!
You could also make these multicoloured depending on your colour scheme or just plain like mine.
