How to make a pineapple pom-pom:
Wrap the wool around your hands, approximately 80 times
Carefully slide the coil of wool off your hand
Tie a length of wool yarn around the centre of the coil of wool,
securing with a second knot.
Now take your scissors and cut through the two loops of wool as shown, being careful not to cut through the centre.
Now to give your pompom a haircut! Carefully trim
until you have an even ball.
You can roll the pom-pom in your hands to make it more compact and oval shaped.
Draw the top of your pineapple onto a sheet of paper and cut it out.
Next, trace the shape onto the reverse of your foam or metallic card. Cut it out two of the larger leaf shapes and one of the smaller.
Stick the two pineapple tops together as shown.
Place the third piece on the reverse.
Finally, attach the top to the pineapple using a hot glue gun or liquid glue.
Push the pineapple top into the center of the pom-pom and hold in place until dry. If you want to add a ribbon loop it between the leaves, securing with your glue gun.
