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.

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

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. I stitched the pom poms in each row to one another first and then stitched the rows together.

  8. 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.
