Pom-poms have to be amongst the most enjoyable things in the craft world. They are easy to make, simple to attach to each other and can look incredibly effective. They can be made in so many sizes and colours. Here are some brilliant Christmas pom-pom crafts that you may want to try this season!
Christmas Pom-Pom Crafts
This is a really stylish and sophisticated take on the door or wall wreath. I made mine in white and grey wool, but you can use any colours to match your decor. You will need
- wool – I like chunky or super chunky wool – in whatever colour you choose
- a pom-pom maker – this is a 4 size bundle that is really useful
- some sharp scissors
- a wreath ring – there are 12 in this pack – perfect if you decide you want to make some presents – or maybe my rag wreath from this post!
I made some pom-poms in various sizes, and even mixed the colours for one size of pom-pom. I then just tied them onto the wreath ring in an even design.
You could embellish the wreath with extra baubles, bows or even some battery powered lights. But I like how stylish and elegant this wreath looks without anything more.
Using the same colours and sizes of pom-poms, I strung some more of them onto a length of wool long enough to span my fireplace. I used some bells that I had kept from last years Christmas Crackers. ( I love the fact that I got to reuse these this year – Merry Lagom Christmas!) You could buy some here.
Pom-Pom Gnome Ornaments
Again, these are very cute and easy to make. I used a glue gun, which isn’t suitable for younger children to use. You will need.
- white wool
- The pom-pom maker – use the smallest circle
- sharp scissors
- some red and pink felt
- some butchers string – I used a lovely ‘candy cane red green and white one I found here.
- I accessorised with some more of my reclaimed Christmas cracker bells, but here are some to buy.
I took about 15cm of butchers twine, strung the bell onto this and then tied a knot in the ends. Then I put a dot of glue onto the top of the triangle and stuck the knot of the hanger to this. Carefully, I also used the glue gun to stick the triangle into a cone shape (taking care not to burn your fingers!). I cut the bottom of the cone to make it a hat shape. Then, using a little more glue I stuck the white pom pom into the ‘hat’. Finally, I added either a nose, or nose and googly eyes.
These can be hung onto the tree or made into a garland for the gnome-lover in your life.
Brussel Sprout Garland
The last of my Christmas pom-pom crafts is a very special garland. What is Christmas without a brussel sprout? And these little fellows make a great fun garland. Maybe for a children’s room or the dining room? Again you will need
- chunky wool – this time in 2 different colours of green
- red felt for the hats
- googly eyes
- butchers twine
- a glue gun
- a pom pom maker
I made up the largest pom pom from the maker in two different colours of green and also a mixture of the 2 colours. From the felt I cut a hat piece and glued the ends together with the glue gun.
One tip I would say, hand the sprouts as a bare garland first before trying to place the eyes and crowns. That way, you get a lot more control over which way the sprouts are all looking.
And I’m sure you agree, its such a fun decoration.
Why not pin me for later?
