Pom Pom Ornaments For the Christmas Tree
It’s been non-stop, cray-cray busy this holiday season. With family coming, house cleaning and organizing, baking, party-going, shopping, wrapping, errand-ing, it’s been a complete whirlwind. But we still managed to get some of these cute pom pom ornaments done for our tree, which looked great by the way next to our simple salt dough ornaments.

All you need are two items.
- Yarn. I bought red, green and white.
- And a handy little pom pom maker.
- Optional: I found these little wooden star shapes at the Target dollar aisle.
My 6 year old can make these pom pom ornaments with her eyes closed. It’s so easy. All you need to do is lift the flaps of the one side of the pom pom maker and wrap the yarn around until nicely covered. Then do the same on the other side. Once fully covered, close the flaps and take a sharp pair of scissors and snip along the middle of the wound up yarn. Once both sides are snipped, tie a piece of yarn through the middle tightly. I make sure to do a couple of tight knots. And then release the flaps one by one, take the pom pom maker apart by actually pulling it apart and TADA – you made yourself a fluffy little pom pom . There should be enough string hanging to be able to tie the string so that you can hang your ornament.
Tada! I really wanted to get this post out, to give ideas to anyone looking for any last minute Christmas crafts or DIY Christmas tree ornaments to do with the kids. My daughter loved making these. And of course she did. Because she’s like me. She loves pom poms, too. How could you not?!
Ok, I think I’m getting a little loopy. It’s late and Countdown to Christmas has begun!
Happy crafting, everybody! Happy holidays.
