Pom pom ornaments are easy, fun and look so festive! These 3 easy pom pom ornaments are fun for a variety of ages and are a great family activity, party craft or something to keep the kids busy while you do some gift wrapping this week. Also, we like to give family members that visit for the holidays a little gift that the kids make and these 3 ornament crafts are perfect for that! All of these require filling a ball ornament. For safety, if they are little kids, I would suggest getting plastic ornaments. If adults are making the craft, try using the glass balls as they look really nice!
3 Easy Pom Pom Ornaments for Kids to Make
1. Pom Pom Christmas Tree Ornament
Festive red and red & white striped dresses in the post are from Alice & Ames.
Supplies: empty clear ball ornament, green pom poms, paint pens: black, yellow, orange, red and blue
Directions: Take the top off the ornament and fill the ball with green pom poms. You want it pretty full so it looks green. Place the ornament top back on. Then use a black paint pen to draw a curly line around the ball (the light’s string). Last, use different color paint pens to make the colorful bulbs on the black string.
2. Pom Pom Snowman Ornament
Supplies: empty clear ball ornament, white pom poms, pipe cleaner, 2 additional pom poms (any color), black paint pen, orange paper, glue (hot glue is best)
Directions: Take the top off the ornament and fill the ball with white pom poms. You want it pretty full so it looks white. Place the ornament top back on. Cut a piece of pipe cleaner that’s about 3 inches long. Glue it to either side of the top of the ornament, glueing a pom pom on each end. This should look like the snowman is wearing earmuffs. Cut a tiny triangle from the orange paper and glue it on for the carrot nose. Last, use the paint pen to draw on eyes and a mouth.
3. Simple Pom Pom Ornament
Supplies: empty clear ball ornament, variety of pom poms – any colors and sizes will do!
Directions: Take the top off the ornament and fill the ball with all different pom poms. Place the ornament top back on. That’s it! I have done this craft at a number of classroom parties and kids’ Christmas parties and it’s always an easy craft success!
