How to make a Heart pom pom using cardboard discs

I came up with this idea of making heart pom pom as I need one to use it as a gift topper.You can also use this as decor for your valentine's day party by connecting many pom pom as a garland and use it as a backdrop.It is simple but a little time consuming but you can get it done during a tv show or a netflix movie .So enjoy the combo of joy & fun :) Lets get started.

Materials Required:
Woolen yarn

Step 1:
Draw a heart shape with a circle inside (as shown) and cut out.The size of the heart determines the size of pom pom.You will need two discs for making one pom pom.I used pizza boxes to make the discs.If you want you can make a slit in the disc for easy winding.If you don't want to make a slit, you have to wind the yarn in batches but cutting some amount of yarn from bundle ,winding it then again cutting ,winding and goes like that.What do you think now ?Making  a slit ,right ?Go with it :)

Step 2 :
Start winding the wool "evenly" over the discs.The more you wind ,you will get a more fluffy pom pom.Evenness and bulkiness is the key to get a cute & nice pom pom :)

Step 3:
Once you are done winding the discs completely.Start cutting the yarn by inserting the scissors between two discs.When you are half done take a piece of thread and pass it through the center of the discs and secure it with a square knot.

Step 4:
Cut throw all the yarns and remove the discs.Just to ensure the thread is secured , make a another knot and tighten it.Trim if there is any uneven yarns.Voila!!!you got a heart pom pom!!!As, I made it to use as a gift topper ,I stick it a small heart sticker in the middle so that I can write any message.(This is totally optional ).
