Steps -DIY Teddy Bear
Watch the video or follow the steps below!
First, we will make several pom-poms for this DIY Teddy Bear.
We need two white pom-poms for the teddy bear’s body and head. Then we need six red pom-poms for ears, hands and legs. And lastly, we need a tiny black pom-pom for the teddy bear’s little nose.
So, Let’s start making the teddy bear!
First, let’s make a pom-pom for the teddy bear’s body. Wrap the white yarn around your palm approximately 200 times. This may seem like a very big number at first. But once you start, you will find yourself doing it like a pro. 🙂
Carefully remove it from your palm without unwrapping. Tie a knot using another yarn around its middle part and make sure it is really tight.
Cut open both the sides using scissors and gently fluff it up. Cut off any extra lengths of yarn projecting out. Voila! You have made the first pom-pom for this teddy bear. We will use it for the teddy-bear’s body. You can cut this pom-pom to form slightly an oval-shape if you prefer.
Make another pom-pom the same way. Make it a little smaller than our previous pom-pom by cutting some extra length from the tips. You have made a pom-pom for the head.
Now, we need to make six small pom-poms for the ears, hands and legs.
Wrap the red yarn around two of your adjacent fingers approximately 150 times.
Carefully remove it from your palm without unwrapping. Tie a knot using another red yarn around its middle part and make sure it is really tight. Fluff it up and cut any extra lengths of yarn projecting out.
Make 6 of them.
Lastly, make a black tiny pom-pom for the nose by wrapping the yarn approximately 50 times around one finger.
You have made all the pom-poms for this DIY Teddy Bear. Now, stick them together using a hot-glue gun.
Don’t forget to add the wiggle eye stickers for the teddy bear’s eyes! You may also use two tiny black pom-poms instead!
That’s it! You have made your own cute little Teddy-Bear 🙂 How easy was that?!!
