I know it's not quite the right blue, but I didn't have any in my wool stash (shock, horror) so I had to buy some. The savvy shopkeepers have inflated the prices of everything royal blue so I ended up getting navy. I ask you, I mean, I know it's all about supply and demand, but ripping me off on wool is out of order!
So, you'll need:
Wool of different colours
Scrap card (cereal box type is fine)
A hooped embroidery frame (you could use wire, but the hoop is guaranteed to give you a perfect circle!)
Ribbon to finish
I'm sure I don't need to teach you how to make pompoms, any more than I need to teach my grandmother to suck eggs. But it's very simple, just make a pair of cardboard doughnuts and wrap with wool. Check Youtube if you're not sure...
Before you snip through your wool and remove the card, thread them onto your hoop. It will make life so much easier than trying to thread a completed pompom on.
I used varying sizes of pompoms - partly because I thought it would look more interesting and partly because I could never remember which cup I'd drawn around...
When you've made and threaded enough doughnuts, snip them open, tie them securely around the middle and fan out to fill your ring.
Add some ribbon for more flourish and hang on your door. Simples.
