How to Make a Pompom Decoration

Who doesn’t love a pompom, right? Check out Pip Lincolne's Pompom Decoration video and download the project sheet here.

You will need ...

  • a few balls of wool
  • thick cardboard
  • scissors
  • a stick from the garden
  • some ribbon or string

How To Make It

  1. Cut your cardboard into a rectangle shape as shown.
  2. Tie your wool around the cardboard.
  3. Wrap the wool around and around the cardboard until you have a very thick layer.
  4. Tie a long length of yarn around the middle, very tightly. Tie it a couple more times to secure the middle of your pompom.
  5. Slide the unfinished pompom off the cardboard carefully. Knot once more in the middle to keep things snug.
  6. Snip the pompom loops to make a fluffy pompom.
  7. Make a couple more, making sure to leave a long length of yarn on each one for hanging later.
  8. Tie the pompoms to your stick. Tie a length of ribbon to each end to make your hanger.
  9. Hang it up and feel proud!
