Christmas is truly just around the corner so now’s as good a time as any to start thinking about decor! These DIY Christmas Pom-pom baubles, which I whipped up for Bloesem Kids, will brighten up any tree, garland or centre piece. PLUS they’re a great craft activity for the little ones! Head over to Bloesem Giving or find the tutorial below!
First, download this template and print it out onto a piece of card stock. Then cut out the donut-shapes (this part might be need a bit of adult help – cutting that inner circle can be tricky!). Layer two card stock donuts and start wrapping the yarn around. To create different patterns and effects, just follow these guidelines!
When the donut is completely wrapped in yarn, take your scissors and cut around the edge, separating the card donuts as you go. Once you’ve snipped around the entire edge, take a piece red or silver cord and wrap it around the middle of the pom-pom in between the two card donuts. Pull it tight and tie it securely. Thread on a few beads then make a knot at the end, creating a loop.
Now it’s just a matter of fluffing out and trimming the pom-pom into a neat little sphere and hanging it up! Too cute!
