Watch how to make a pompom tree for your coronation tablescape
The coronation of King Charles III is fast approaching, and on 6 May many of us will be watching the ceremony, then celebrating with a street party or coronation party – and what better way to decorate it than with a pompom tree?
A street party is the perfect opportunity to show off your crafting skills by creating beautiful (and really easy!) makes to decorate the table.
We love this pompom tree – it's so simple to make and will look stunning as the centrepiece of your tablescape. We've made the pompoms in red, white and blue yarn for a Union Jack theme, but you can use any colours to suit your style.
We've used Prima yarn to make our pompoms, available exclusively at The Works in 36 stunning colours.
And why not decorate your street party table even more with these cute paper fans and stylish no-sew bunting.

How to make a pompom tree
Using the base of a glass as a template, draw two circles on your card and cut them out.
Holding your circles together, cut a slit in both from the outside to the centre of the circle.
Taking your first yarn colour, wrap your yarn around the circles until you have covered them in yarn. Snip the end of your yarn, leaving a tail of approximately 20cm.
Cut along the top space in between your circles, working all the way round the circle.
Slide the tail of the yarn in between the two circles and tie it, so it pinches the middle of the tufts you have created. Remove the card from the middle of the yarn.

Tie the end of the yarn tail together to make a loop, ready to hang on your tree.
Repeat this process for as many pompoms as you'd like, and hang them on the branches of your tree.
