Make a big statement with a fluffy pom-pom! Make it one color or two for different looks! Once the gift is unwrapped, it can also be used as a luggage tag!

For this project, you will need yarn (in the examples at the right, we use Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in Fisherman with Vanna's Glamour in Diamond for the gift at the left and Alpine Wool in Chili and Olive for the gift at the right) along with a pom-pom maker.

Step 1: Make your pom-pom. To make your pom-pom, follow the directions on the pom-pom maker package. Leave the strand of yarn used to secure the middle of the pom-pom long; you will use this to secure the pom-pom to your package.

Step 2: Tape the end of the yarn to your package and wrap it around the package several times in one direction. Cut the yarn and tape it to the back of the package. Repeat this step, wrapping the yarn around the package in the other direction.

Tie the pom-pom to the yarn wrapped around the package at the point where the yarn crosses the top of the package.
