These cute little yarn pom pom pumpkins are so quick and cute, they’re the perfect adorable Halloween decoration!
Oh my gosh, you guys, I made some easy pom pom pumpkins and they are the CUTEST!
If there is one thing I have enough extra of in this house, it’s yarn. And the other day I was making a pom pom for the top of a hat when I thought to myself that a pom pom pumpkin would be cute. But these turned out even more adorable that I had hoped.
My pom pom maker set came with multiple size makers so I made my cute yarn pumpkins in three different sizes just for fun. They’d be cute in some other fall colors just like real pumpkins too!
They’d also be a really fun craft to make for a craft night (or maybe a virtual craft night these days) or even with your kids. All you need is some some yarn, pom pom makers and a few little sticks. I grabbed some wood chips from under our swingset and they were perfect!
These look super cute on my mantel or nestled among other things on my bookshelf. My kids are particularly enamored with them because they’re so soft and adorable. Just remember to keep them out of little hands!
And also, before you start, make sure you read the instructions that came with YOUR pom pom maker. I can’t guarantee that they all work exactly the same way.
Let’s get crafting!
