Here's how:

1. Make pom-poms in various sizes. (To make a multi-colored pom-pom, color block and overlap the yarn on each side).

2. Tie the pom-poms to one long piece of string like you're assembling a necklace concentrating most of the poms at the ends leaving the middle emptier.

3. Repeat with another strand of string attaching poms to them at the ends. Having at least two strands will give you four sections that hang down when tied onto the tree. Add more strands if you want more poms.

4. To attach to the top of your tree, simply wrap the middle section (without poms) around the top branch. Wrap around a couple of times to secure and let the pom-poms trail down the top of the tree as you wish!
