Pah, says I. I could make one of them for nothing.
And so I did.
So simple to make.
Knit/crochet/use one of those dolls with pins in the head a length of i-cord. I knitted mine using double pointed needles.
Length is up to you. Mine is approx waist length on my daughter.
Get yourself a pom-pom maker. This isn't the one I used although it is very similar. 4 pieces which clip together. Much easier than trying to thread the cord onto pom-poms, or cutting out circles of cardboard.
I added a few stitches through the cord to secure each pom-pom.
And now I'm going find some scissors and clip that rogue thread off the middle pom pom...
