Help on Pom Poms!

This may be a dumb question but I have no idea on how to do a Pom Pom.
I’ve seen some patterns that say to use cardboard but I’m on a time restraint so I can’t go looking for cardboard.

Is there any other way I can do this?

Thanks for all your help!!!

don’t you have any cardboard laying around at all… I would just cut up a cereal box, telephone book covers, anything… you just need to cut 2 that look like this, maybe with small centre hole, and overlap them, then loop yarn over the edges of the cardboard, from outside to inside, back over the outside etc, until it is all covered. This is the time consuming part.

thanks for the tip!!! I will definitely do it. Thanks for the graphic too!!!
