Exact gauge is not essential to this project.

With red from the yarn pack, wrap yarn around the small ring completely covering the ring, secure yarn ends with glue.
With purple from the yarn pack, wrap the large ring, same as for the small ring.

Following package directions, and with yarns from the yarn pack, make 21 small pom-poms, about 1 in. (2.5 cm) in diameter and 6 large pom-poms, about 2 in. (5 cm) in diameter.

Cut a 60 in. (152.5 cm) strand each of light green, orange and pink from the yarn pack. Hold these 3 strands together and fold in half. Lay folded end of strands over the small ring. Pull ends of strands through the fold and tighten to secure the strands to the ring. You will have 6 stands hanging from the small ring. At this point, the easiest way to work is to suspend the ring from a hook. You could also slip the small ring over the top of a hanger, then hang the hanger from a doorknob.
Working with one strand at a time, thread end of strand into a blunt needle. Insert needle through one small pom-pom. Wrap strand over and around large ring, drawing out the strand so that the large ring hangs 10 in. (25.5 cm) below the small ring.
Repeat with remaining strands, spacing the strands evenly around the large ring. When you are happy with the position of the large ring, glue the wrapped strands in place to the ring so it will not slip out of position.
Thread the end of one strand back into the blunt needle, then draw the needle through 2 small pom-poms. Slide one pom-pom up the strand, then knot the end of the strand below the second pom-pom.
Thread the end of the next strand into the blunt needle, then draw the needle through one small pom-pom. Slide pom-pom up the strand, so that it hangs at a height midway between the 2 pom-poms on the first strand. Knot the end of the second strand and trim.
Repeat with the remaining strands, alternating 2 pom-poms and one pom-pom on the strands.

Glue large pom-poms evenly spaced around the large ring. Glue remaining small pom-poms to ring between the large pom-poms.
