Make Pretty Pom Pom Flowers for Valentine’s Day

We found the prettiest yarn at the craft shop today… gorgeous valentine colors. We decided we just HAD to have it to make flowers for Valentine’s Day. Are they not wonderful?!

Also, do you see the drawing of the mustang Kate drew? It’s in pencil and is so totally amazing that I made her sign it and have framed it. It’s exciting to see her talent unfold.

Pom pom flowers are easy to make and a huge hit with the kids. Who doesn’t love making pom poms?

How to Make Pretty Pom Pom Flowers for Valentine’s Day

All you need is yarn, cardboard, scissors, a few sticks from outside and a little glue.

How to Make a Wool Pom Pom Flower : www.theMagicOnions.com

To make the pom poms, find something round in your home that has the diameter you want your pom pom flowers to be.

And something else round for the center too, quite a lot smaller.

We used a canning jar lid and a glitter tub lid.

Draw two circles on a piece of cardboard for the pom pom form.

Cut along the lines, making a wedge to facilitate cutting the inside circle out. I always make a wedge in my pom pom forms to help at the wrapping stage.

Make two pom pom forms.

To make the flowers, put the two cardboard forms together and sandwich a length of yarn between them. We will use this length to tie our pom pom together at the end.

Wrap yarn liberally around the cardboard pom pom form.

When you are ready, use sharp scissors to cut the yarn pom pom free. Your scissors will slide between the two pieces of cardboard.

Use the two extruding pieces of yarn (that you sandwiched between the cardboard before) to tie your pom pom in place.

If your pom pom isn’t perfectly round, don’t fret. Just trim it with your scissors until it is perfectly round.

Voila! A pretty wool pom pom!

Now, find a few sticks from outside and, with a little glue, stick them each into a pom pom.

Our flowers brighten up our windowsill.
