Twisted Cord: Cut 2 strands of yarn 75" [190.5 cm] long. With both strands tog, hold one end and with someone holding other end, twist strands to the right until they begin to curl. Fold the 2 ends tog and tie in a knot so they will not unravel. The strands will now twist themselves tog. Sew to top of pencil holder as shown in picture.

Pom-pom: Wind yarn around 3 fingers approx 50 times. Remove from fingers and tie tightly in center. Cut through each side of loops. Trim to a smooth round shape. Attach to cord end.
