For the love of Pom Pom Crafts

Sometimes I might get a craving for chocolate, icecream, even chesse and onion crisps….. but this week it was pom poms!! I don’t know where it came from, it was just there, and I couldn’t fight it. I just have to make some!!

So to start me on my path, and because the last time I made a pom pom was in primary school and my memory isn’t what it used to be!! I decided to do a round up of pom pom crafts for kids AND a few cute ones for us mums too.



Here are a few of my favourites:

Top left: Pom Pom Owls by Club ChicaCircle
Simple to follow photo tutorial, all you need is wool, craft foam and some googly eyes

Top Right: Pom Pom bouquet to say thank you or I love you. I think these are so perfect for mother’s day, birthdays or when saying thank you to teacher at the end of the year. via stephlovesben on etsy

Lower Left: simple and sweet pom pom and necklaces for the littles – so pretty and perfect, by one of my favourite bloggers smallforbig

Centre: of course pom pom animals are always a hot favourite with kids, and they don’t come much better than this goofy cuddly bird via amazon

And lower right we have Miss Charlotte, the elegant pom pom spider with the perfect lips and eye lashes. Very simple to make for hours of play and chat via inna’s creations

So, how do you make a pom-pom? It’s easy….

One Crafty Mumma shares her tutorial for making pom-poms with cardboard circles.

I’ve ordered these nifty plastic tools like you see in this tutorial from Country Living.

The simple kitchen fork yarn wrapping method is shared by Petit a Petit and That’s What She Said

Or go really simple and use your fingers to wrap the yarn as shown in these instructions from Bella Dia.
