DIY Pompom Ornament

We are always looking for new ways to utilize scraps here at Elisabethan, we figured this holiday season we would create an ornament that also doubles as a gift bow!  We love to put these on gifts as well as around the house or to decorate a tree outside.  Where do you put your Pompom ornaments?!

Stuff You’ll Need:

Cardboard/Paper (Cereal boxes work great!)

DIY Pompom Ornament_Stuff You Need


Make a pattern piece (Examples below) and cut out pattern.

Trace pattern onto fabric.

  • If using T-shirt material you will need 18-20 cutouts.
  • If using sweater or thicker material you will need 10-12 cutouts.

Cut out your cutouts – They do not need to be perfect.

DIY Pompom Ornament_Cutouts


Cut one 1″ wide by 12″ long strip per ornament – stretch it (pull ends) – save for later.

DIY Pompom Ornament_Strip


Fold cutout in half and cut two 1/4″ slits approximately 1/2″ apart at center.  Repeat this step for each cutout.

DIY Pompom Ornament_Cut Slit


Fold piece in half to line the slits up with each other.  Feed the cutouts onto your strip one at a time.
