For this gift topper, you'll need several colors of yarn (the example below uses Lion® Cotton in Turquoise and Lion Wool® in Dark Teal*).

*Editors' Note: Lion Wool® has been discontinued since this article was originally published. Try a color-changing yarn like Amazing® and Vanna's Tapestry or use the leftover yarn from the handmade gift inside.

Step 5

Repeat steps 3 & 4 once more with the yarn.

Repeat the process with other yarn(s). Once you have enough mini pom-poms wrapped around your package, arrange strands so that pom poms create a diagonal on top of your package.
