If you are anything like me, it’s safe to say that you love pom poms too. There is just something about the fun soft nature of them that is just so fun. Don’t you think? And of course with fall right around the corner, I am all about bringing in those warmer textures like yarn. So, how perfect are these DIY giant pom pom pumpkins? They are the perfect way to welcome fall and PSL season and they are just plain fun to display!
Each pom pom pumpkin comes together in about 15-20 minutes, so it’s easy to create an assortment of them for your mantel or fall decor.
Supplies to make your own giant pom pom pumpkins:
Begin by wrapping your yarn around the cookie sheet. You will need to wrap roughly 2 skeins of yarn for each pumpkin. Feel free to use as many colors as you want for each pumpkin. The biggest thing to make sure of is to use a decent amount of yarn for each pumpkin to make sure that it is full.
Once you have wrapped all the yarn, gently cut the yarn down one side of the cookie tray.
Then cut down the other side and gently remove the tray letting the yarn pieces stay laying ontop of each other. Then cut an 18″ piece of yarn and use it to tie a knot around the center of the yarn strips.
Then fluff the pom pom and use the scissors to trim the yarn ends into a round pumpkin shape. The final step is to add a wood stick for the stem and an optional green felt leaf.
When displaying your DIY giant pom pom pumpkins, try to tuck the bottom ends under the pumpkin to help it resemble the oblong pumpkin shape. If the multi color yarn look isn’t your thing, you can always go with pure orange yarn. I plan on making a few more so that I can fill my whole mantel with giant pom pom pumpkins!
