I have made plenty of homemade pom poms in the past, using both an official pom pom maker, and a homemade pom pom maker, but I think the easiest way I have found to make instant pom poms from yarn, is by simply using a fork.
Yep, I said a fork!
For this craft idea, I make a basic white pom pom, and turned it into a cute Easter bunny decoration.
These are the supplies I used to make my bunny pom poms:
- White yarn
- Plastic fork
- Pink pipe cleaners
- Small pink pom poms (I used a sparkly 1/4″ one)
- Glue gun
- Black puffy paint
I created a short video showing you exactly how I made each bunny pom pom:
After you make your own bunny pom pom decorations, you can use them in a variety of different ways. For instance, you can use it as a replacement for a bow on a gift box (like above), or you can make these cute mini pendant banners.
To make my bunny banners I used:
- 3″ decorative ribbon
- Craft sticks
- Bakers twine
- Glue gun
I cut a length of ribbon about 8″ long. Then I folded the top edge over a craft stick and attached it with a line of glue. I cut a triangle out of the bottom of each of my ribbons to create a pendant shape.
Then I attached a length of bakers twine that I tied on either end of the stick for a hanger.
Finally, I added my homemade bunny pom pom on the front with glue from my glue gun.
My bunny banners were ready to hang!
I love how cute these turned out!
