Follow the detailed instructions and pictures to make your own DIY owl Pom Pom! This is a perfect craft to make with kids!My kids and I have gone a little pom pom crazy and this owl pom-pom is our favorite! Following the pictures below, it’s easy and fun to put together and helps your kids work on those great hand/eye coordination skills. You could even thread a piece of string through the middle and use as an ornament or gift!

DIY Owl Pom Pom

Materials

  • Yarn (White, Black, Yellow, Brown, & Tan)
  • Pom Pom Maker
  • Baker’s Twin (optional)

Instructions

Step 1. Follow the pictures below to start making your Owl Pom Pom. You’ll be making the eyes in the first four steps so make sure to repeat steps 1-3 on both sides (as seen in step 4.)

It takes a little bit of backwards thinking to see how the yarn pieces end up looking like an owl but after you make this one or two times, you’ll totally get it and can eventually make your own patterns.

Step 4. (optional) If you’re planning on turn this Owl Pom Pom into an ornament or gift wrap embellishment, just thread a piece of bakers twine onto a large embroidery needle and insert through the middle (make sure to go through the center thread). Remove the needle, pull to the top, and tie off with a knot. Cutest ornament ever!
