Tie a knot on one end. Lace your needle. Some children might find a threader helpful for this process. Put your needle through the centre of the pom pom (you will know where this is as you will get a bit of resistance as you push through.) Push your pom pom down to your knot. Leaving a bit of distance, make another knot. Thread another pom pom down to the next knot and repeat, until you have an entire garland filled with pom poms. If your child is younger you may want to go with shorter lengths and knot them together. Wrap your pom pom garland around a gift should you like, securing it with clear tape.
