Fantastic Pom Pom Crafts & DIY Ideas

The best Pom-pom crafts and DIYs for the home.

Who doesn’t love a pom pom? So soft and colorful and great fun to make as a child or adult. They are so easy to make even a toddler can do it (with a little help).

How To Make Pom-poms

There are several different ways to make pom-poms.

As a child, I used to make them using cardboard donuts we cut out of old packaging. I remember trying to squeeze the ball of wool through the cardboard hole as I wrapped it around the cardboard donuts.

This method worked but it wasn’t the easiest way to make Pom-poms. Now you can buy plastic versions of these donuts that open up and makes Pom-pom making so much easier. No more trying to stuff a large ball of yarn through a small cardboard hole.

I’ve seen pom-poms made using toilet rolls. Small pom-poms can be made on the end of forks.

If however, you don’t happen to have any cardboard or forks, pom-poms can be made by wrapping yarn around your fingers.

All these methods are for individual pom-poms but if you want to make a lot of pom-poms fast I have a great tutorial for doing just that using only a wire coat hanger.

I used this method to make lots of pom-pom bunny tails for my paper bunny treat bags all in one go.

Wow, thank you so much for including my pom pom wreath. Although it took forever to finish (that's a lot of pom poms!!), it's actually one of my favorite things in our house. Loved seeing all these sweet comments about it! Thank you!

I love the pom rug but I can not read the instructions. They are written in another language. Do you know how I could get them in English? I would love to make it. ??

When I land on a blog in another language Google normally asks me if I want the page translated. So if you use google chrome as your browser it should give you this option. Or just cut and paste the text into Google translate. Hope that is helpful.

What a great bunch of pom pom projects Claire. I love pom poms! They kinda have a fun retro thing going for them that I adore. Those pillows are pure awesomeness, but love the rest too. Thanks so much for sharing at Vintage Charm.
