Step 1
Wrap your Christmas gifts in brown parcel paper. Take three lengths of yarn in different colours and tie each around your present. This creates a layered look. Tidy up your strings to prevent overlapping.

Step 3
Wrap the yarn right to each edge of the pom-pom maker. Continue wrapping until it is thick with many layers. The thicker your pom-pom, the fuller it will be.

Step 4
Repeat step 3 with the remaining two arms. At this stage you could also use another colour of yarn for an ombre effect.
