Default Re: How to make pom pom puffs?

When I was a kid we made pompoms using two plastic butter dish lids cut into doughnut shapes--circles with a center cirle cut out. We sized the doughnut based on the size we wanted the pompom to be. Then wrap the yarn all around the dougnut (two of them actually) several thickness (depending on how full you wanted it). And then cut using the seperation of the two doungnuts as a guide. Then you would feed a string inbetween the doughnut/lids and tie very tight and then pull the plastic lid/doughnut off and voila--a perfect pompom!
