Fluff Pompom and trim ends evenly.



FINISHING

Thread 1 strand into blunt needle.

Leaving a long tail, thread needle (gently) through center of Pompoms.

Remove needle, do not trim ends of strand.

Repeat with other 2 strands.

Pull ends of all 6 strands until they are even and Pompoms create a shamrock shape.
