4-Take the napkin tied up and cut out the corners.

5-Separate the layers of the napkins gently until the pompom is formed.

6-To make the legs, take a straw and shorten it about 4 cm on the side of the folds (this will be the right leg) and for the folded leg, shorten the straw 4 cm on the other side, to use the folds as a joint.
