DIY Pom Pom Christmas Tree Wall Hanging
Pom Pom Christmas Tree :If you’re looking for a fun Christmas wall hanging, then I’ve got just the one for you, my Pom Pom Christmas tree.
Whilst having a rummage through my craft stash (trying to hide it away from my husband), I came across a load of green wool. This wool had been bought years ago, obviously when I was going through a knitting phase. Just because I no longer knit that doesn’t mean I don’t have a use for the yarn.
In fact I love pom poms and recently did a roundup of some fantastic pom pom crafts. I took the easy route with the green wool and made pom poms with it which I then in turn made into a lovely Christmas Tree wall hanging.
Pom Poms as a Christmas decoration…
My pom pom Christmas tree is a gorgeous addition to my Christmas decorations. It also makes me feel a tiny bit less guilty about my craft hoarding.
The pom pom Christmas tree looks lovely hanging from a bit of driftwood on the wall, it would also make a fantastic festive alternative door wreath.

What you need to make a Pom Pom Christmas Tree
- Green yarn, this doesn’t need to be expensive wool. Have a look in your local stores bargain bucket. Depending on how big you make your tree depends on how much yarn you need. I found 50g of wool made about 7 pom poms.
- Coat hanger or pom pom maker
- Assorted coloured felt balls
- Glue dots
- Green emboidery thread and needle
How to make a Pom Pom Christmas Tree
- First thing is to make your pom poms. You can do this the traditional method using a pom pom maker or you can do my quick method where you can make more than one pom pom at a time. I use a coat hanger for this.
Full details of my quick pom pom method, can be seen on my paper bunny treat bag post. For my tree I made 28 pom poms approximately 6-7cm in diameter.
- Gather your pom poms together and arrange them in a triangle shape. I had a bottom row of 7 pom poms, decreasing by one until the top row was just a single pom pom.
- I was going to attempt to hang the pom poms like this on seven string rows. However that proved far more complicated than it looked. Therefore I stitched my pom pom tree together, which produced a much better result.
- I stitched the pom poms in each row to one another first and then stitched the rows together.
- Before hanging your pom pom Christmas tree, decorate it with coloured felt balls. I stuck my felt balls onto the pom poms just using glue dots.
Crafting pom poms..
As I mentioned this was a really relaxing craft. I love to do stuff with my hands whilst watching telly with the family in the evening. Making Pom Poms are a perfect craft for this as they require very little attention or space to make.
I love the pom pom Christmas tree hanging on the wall but I am thinking about putting it on the front door as a wreath. Maybe it’s time to change up my felted acorn wreath, but I love that one too ! I just can’t make my mind up.
