The pom pom Christmas tree is an idea for a cozy Christmas decoration that can be made by the whole family. Pom poms are easy to make and the little ones can wind them even on a fork. A lot of pom poms are needed to make a Christmas tree, so all hands on deck 😉
Supplies for the pom pom Christmas tree
- Yarn – I used 5 shades of green Jeans Art yarn. Acrylic yarn is also good enough to make pom poms. One skein produces 4 to 8 pom poms. However it all depends on the length and thickness of the yarn and the size of the pom poms.
- Pom pom makers, cardboard circles or forks (for the comparison of methods, see here)
- Red mini pom poms for decoration
- Cardboard sheet
- Glue or tape
- Wire lights (optional)

Detailed instructions on how to make yarn pom poms with a comparison of tools can be found in our post. This time, together with the girls, we decided to use pom pom makers.
How to make the pom pom Christmas tree?
The base of the Christmas tree is a cardboard cone made of a semicircle. All you need is to outline a plate on cardboard. Then cut it out, form a nice cone and stick it on the edge.
Pom poms can be glued to the cone or tied through holes. I chose the latter method because after Christmas I have another task for my pom poms 😊
Attach the pom poms starting at the base of the cone and work your way up. It will be dense on the top of the cone, so you can put the pom poms together, put the strings through the hole in the cone and glue them from the inside.
The pom pom Christmas tree is ready. You can leave it there or decorate it with red pom poms and lights. Choose the version that suits you best.
