How To Make Easter Egg Pom Poms
Pom poms are a great way to make your home look festive, and this DIY is a great way to add some quirky Easter decorations to your home. I am a big fan of adding colour and elements of celebration to your home as it immediately makes any space happy and joyful, plus if you’ve made the decorations yourself, you can bask in the feel good glow that being creative imbues!
Pom Poms continue to hold the limelight, look out for them embellishing basket bags, sandals and summer dresses this year, as well as still being a big part of festival fashion style. If you’re heading to a festival this year, make sure you’ve got your Pom Pom Headband ready! If not, check out my Pom Pom Headband Workshop in May to make your very own quirky and unique festival accessory.
Pom Poms are quick and easy to make, and once you’ve grasped the basics you can experiment until your hearts content! This Easter Egg Pom Pom DIY is super fun, and a great way to get creative this Easter Bank Holiday Weekend.
So, to make an Easter Egg Pom Pom you’ll need:
Yarn in a variety of colours
A pom pom maker (I think Clover are the best!)
To start, open up one side of your pom pom maker. In your right hand (left hand if your left handed) hold the end of the yarn securely in place with your thumb.
To create spots on your Easter Egg Pom Pom, choose two colours of yarn for your design. Wrap the first yarn 20 times around the open section of your pom pom maker. Cut the yarn and add the second colour. Wrap this 40 times covering the first colour and going either side, but not up to the edges of the pom pom maker. Take your first colour again, and fill the pom pom maker covering the second yarn and going right up to the edges . Close this side of the maker and cut the yarn.
The next step is to open the other side of the maker and repeat, close and cut the yarn.
Once completed, you can then cut all the way around the maker. With a length of yarn, tie a double knot tightly around the middle of the maker and yarn. This holds your pom pom together so pull this tight, and make sure this is really secure. You are now ready to pull the two sides of your pom pom maker apart.
So you should have a fluffy straggly shape at this point! To make it into an egg shape hold the two lengths of string that are wrapped around the middle of the pom pom at the back. You can then use this point as a guide to trim your shape. Trim the lower half into a sphere, then with the top half, trim it into a point to start with and then slowly shape into a softer domed egg shape.
Once you’ve finished trimming, you should have a lovely Easter Egg Pom Pom! I’ve made some mini and medium eggs which look great styled up with some fairy lights, sugar flowers and a few mini eggs! Perfect for your Easter table.
