  7. Using a fork or small Pom Pom maker, make a Pom Pom to put on top of your hat. Leave the tails long so that you can sew the Pom Pom to the hat.

  8. You now have your mini bobble hat. To hang it from the tree, get another length of yarn and double it up through your needle, putting a double knot in the loose ends and passing it through the middle of the hat and up through the Pom Pom so the knot sits inside. Now make lots of them in different colour combinations to fit your decor.
