The good thing about staying home these days is there’s lots of free time for our favorite activity, crafting! We are always looking for new ways to utilize scraps here at Elisabethan, and our DIY pompom is a perfect way to use those smaller scraps. These pompoms are easy and fun for both kids and adults. So go ahead and make pompoms galore and brighten up your day!
What will your pompoms look like?! Please take a photo and share with us on facebook 🙂
What You’ll Need:
Cardboard/Paper (Cereal boxes work great!)
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.
Cut one 1″ wide by 12″ long strip per ornament – stretch it (pull ends) – save for later.
Fold cutout in half and cut two 1/4″ slits approximately 1/2″ apart at center. Repeat this step for each cutout.
Fold piece in half to line the slits up with each other. Feed the cutouts onto your strip one at a time.
Tightly center all of the cutout in the middle.
Tie the bundle together tightly over folds. Tie once more to secure.
Viola! Pompom Ornament!
Tie a loop knot at the end of the strip.
Now it’s time to hang your new Pompom! Where is your’s going?
