1) Draw a circle the same size as you would like your pom pom. I used a saucer to draw around as I can’t draw one free hand. Remember the bigger the circle the bigger your pom pom. PomPomDIY (4)2) Draw a circle inside. The bigger the circle the fuller and more compact it will be. (Personally I think mine was too big.)PomPomDIY (5)

3) Cut around the circle and cut out the inner circle. PomPomDIY (6)PomPomDIY (8)

9) If at any point the piece of tulle that you are using ends and is a bit longer than the circle, you should cut it. If you leave it a bit too long then the edge of your pom pom will not be lovely and even. PomPomDIY (24)PomPomDIY (26)10) Keep wrapping until you have basically filled the hole in the center. PomPomDIY (31)11) Using the scissors start to cut a hole on the side of the tulle.
