How to Make Pom Pom Decor for Teepees + #Linky | Fun Crafts with Mom

So we finally jumped on the wagon and got a neat teepee for the kids (review + giveaway coming soon!). Since it's pretty basic, I thought it would be fun to give it a little pizzazz with pom poms because who doesn't love these little fuzzy balls?


1.  Make a few pom pom balls with the Clover pom pom maker. I can't believe we used to make pom poms without this amazing device. So cheap (less than $7 for 2) yet functional and provides loads of crafty goodness! Just wind yarn around each "arm" of the pom pom maker until full, cut down the middle, tie with twine and then "unload" to a pretty pom pom. Tie a long piece of yarn to each pom pom.

2.  Grab a few wooden balls and string onto the yarn attached to the pom poms. I was planning on painting them but got a bit lazy as I don't have enough hours in the weekend to begin with. However, I think they look nice unfinished. You can knot on each side of the ball to keep them from sliding off. 

3.  Spray paint the bottom half of the feathers with the gold. Let dry.

4.  Braid a few strands of the embroidery floss and hot glue the feathers on.

5.  Wrap around the top of the teepee poles. You can also add a few pieces of roughly cut fabric.
