DIY Pom Poms

DIY Pom Pom - Crafting with Kids - The Peaceful Press -

At The Peaceful Preschool we love all things hand made. So when our Free Letter A Unit was being curated, and we needed pom poms, it was only natural that we go ahead and, well, make them!

The kids love being a part of this process, why not make some today!


Red and green yarn

1 1/2" square piece of stiff cardboard


  • Cut a 6” piece of yarn.
  • Using the large yarn ball, wrap yarn 40 times around the cardboard.
  • Carefully, without messing up the loops, slide the wrapped yarn off of the cardboard.
  • Using the 6” piece of yarn, tie a tight knot around the middle of the looped yarn, so that you have two groups of looped yarn on either side of the tied piece.
  • Slide a scissor into the loops and cut them open all the way around.
  • Fluff the pom-pom.
