Pom-poms are useful for many craft projects. I've used pompoms to the first my son's Christmas Stocking . This is my first Christmas Stocking Crochet. I think, it is successful ;-)
The first method. It is perfect for bigger pompons.
1. Cut two cardboard rounds. Cut a small round hole in the middle of them. Smaller than I did :-)
2. Wind the rounds closely with yarn.
3.The best continue until the round is entirely covered. Put the scissors in between the two circles of the cardboard and cut open yarn that lay round the outer edge.
4. Draw a piece of thread between the two circles and knot it firmly round the stitches that meet in the centre hole. Leave sufficiently long ends.
5. Snip the thread with your scissors until it becomes quite fluffy and the ball is round.
The second method. It is perfect for small pompoms.
