I wanted to have a go at something cute this year, and so I thought I’d share! I made a trio of Halloween pom-pom pumpkins!
Pom-Pom creations are super simple but really fun to make! They can also be a great way to use up scrap yarn!
Halloween Pom Pom Pumpkins
What you’ll need:
Pom-Pom makers, or cardboard circle hoops.
A GOOD pair of scissors.
Yarn (In orange and green, or similar!)
How I made them:
So I have some pom-pom makers, which are pretty widely available, and not too expensive, so I’d recommend some, even if they’re not brilliant (like mine) they manage the job a little more easily than cardboard. Though the old school method is still not bad.
I first looped the green yarn in the middle of one side. This will make your stem. You want to keep it quite tightly in one place. Then on to your orange yarn; layer that on as thick as you like (I like quite a packed in pom, so I use LOTS of yarn). Cover the green nice and evenly.
Once you’ve wound all your yarn you end up with this:
I usually like to wind until the hole in the middle is a lot smaller, but this made a clearer image!
For more easy craft ideas, how about a Halloween Wreath?
Then with some very sharp scissors, cut between your maker layers, and tie through the middle of your pom-pom.
Once they are all fluffed, you can either use your loop to hang your pom poms; for example: if you have a Halloween tree, or even create a garland! Or you can have your poms freestanding.
I enjoyed playing around with sizes! I like them fluffy, though you can of course trim your pom-poms to your liking. Let me know if you make any Halloween pom-pom pumpkins too!
