5. When tying off leave a two long pieces of yarn, you will use them to sew the holly leaves on and to hang your pudding
6. Trim the ends of your pudding, making it look neater
7. Attach one holly leave to one of the pieces of yarn, using a large eyed sewing needle
8. Repeat for other piece of yarn 
9. Add the button, and push it down on top of the holly leaves

  1. Oh wow! Over the summer, my family learnt to make pompoms using cardboard templates that we cut out from cereal boxes and I think we might've attempted a multi-coloured one once?!
    This is so creative and adorable - I'm really impressed! These would be so cute on a bobble hat or even as a tree decoration!
