Traditional Pom Poms

You Will Need:

  • Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • String or Wool

How to Make Traditional Pom Poms

Step 1

Crafts with pom poms

On a piece of card, draw two matching large circles with smaller circles inside, then cut them out. It’s okay to cut through the disc to cut out the inner circle (as shown in the pic). In fact, this will make the card easier to remove later. The larger your discs, the larger your pom poms will be.

Step 2

Cut a generous length of string and begin looping it around your discs. You can simply do a couple of loops over your first one to keep the string in place, or tie it if that’s easier for your child (any knots can be trimmed off at the end). We saved time by quadrupling(!) over our string before wrapping it round the discs. About two to three layers of string should be plenty.

Step 3
