Wrap your continuously around one half of the pom pom maker nice and evenly, until the gap in the bottom is almost closed. Snip your wool and tuck the tail of the wool underneath another wrap of wool to keep it secure.

Cut another length of wool and slot it into the gap between the two halves of the pom pom maker. Tie in the middle and tie again to secure. You can now remove the pom pom maker and your pom pom should hold together nicely.
