How to

1 Trace around the round cup or bottle on your design paper.
Mechanical pencil:KOKUYO Co.,Ltd.
2 Cut out the circles.
You can save some time by cutting out 3 to 4 sheets at the same time.
Scissors:KOKUYO Co.,Ltd.
3 Fold each circle in half, apply glue to the back, and stick 4 pieces together. Make sure you leave one part open to attach the thread later. Make as many of these as you need.
4 Make a pompom.
  1. Wind the yarn around your fingers about 50 or 60 times.
  2. Tie a tight knot around the middle of the looped thread using a short piece of yarn.
  3. Cut through the looped ends.
  4. Trim the pompom until it makes a beautiful ball.
5 Make a tassel.
  1. Wind the yarn around your fingers about 20 or 30 times.
  2. Tie a tight knot around all of the wrapped yarn using a short piece of yarn, and then cut through the looped ends.
  3. Fold it in half and tie it tightly.
  4. Trim the bottom of the tassel neatly.
6 As you thread, make a knot to keep the mobile parts from slipping off, attach a piece from the opening, and glue it closed. Attach the pompoms wherever you want, and attach a tassel at the very bottom of the thread.
