Pom Pom Christmas Tree

If you like making pom poms and you are looking for something Christmas related to do with the kids, you might like to try this Pom Pom Christmas Tree.

I made my pom poms using the no loom method. I used just over 100 grams of yarn in the main colour and about 25 grams in the second colour.   For my tree I needed 10 large pom poms, 10 medium pom poms, 6 small pom poms in the main colour and 6 small pom poms in the contrast colour.

It takes much longer to make the pom poms than it does to put the tree together so the more kids you have working on it, the better!

What you need to make your Pom Pom Christmas Tree

  • approx. 125 gms green yarn (I used a couple of different greens)
  • pom pom loom (optional)
  • Polystyrene cone
  • Glue gun
  • Safety scissors


If you haven't already, make your pom poms.  My tree used 10 large pom poms, 10 medium pom poms and 6 small pom poms in the main colour and 6 small pom poms in the contrast colour.

Using the glue gun (under adult supervision) begin to glue the pom poms to the cone one row at a time.

Work your way up the cone.  On my tree I did 2 rows large, 2 rows medium and 2 rows small.

Use the small pom poms in the contrasting colour to fill any gaps between your pom poms.  Trim all of the long tails and tidy up any long bits on your pom poms, and you are done.

Now you can decorate your table top Christmas tree in any way you like!
