Continue wrapping the wool around the rings until they are completely covered. You can use colour combinations to make the pompoms more attractive.

After you've made a few passes with the wool, put some scissors in between the two circles and cut the wool around the outer edge. Be careful not to drop the pieces of the wool of the pompom.
