Mickey Mouse Pom Poms

Pom-poms are so soft and friendly and are the easiest things to make. Whether you’re using a DIY cardboard pom pom maker or store bought maker you can make anything out of pom poms! It’s great fun, just give it a go.

Time: 25 minutes

What You’ll Need

  • Pom Pom Maker: store bought or DIY Cardboard Circles
  • Wool: black, red and yellow
  • Scissors

How To Make It

  1. First make two plain black pom poms, leaving long trails on the centre yarn strand that binds the pom pom together. Leave aside.
  2. Next make the red pom-pom – fill one side of the pom pom maker with red, and on the other side layer the yellow and red wool has shown – two small strips of yellow first (for the buttonholes) …..
  3. …and surround these strips, left and right with the red wool, and layer the red right up to the top to finish the side, completely covering the yellow.
  4. Insert your scissors into the gap and cut the yarn, and as you do the hidden yellow dots will be revealed (that’s the exciting part). Tie a length of yarn tightly around the pom pom to hold it in shape after you have removed the pom pom maker.
  5. Now no pom pom is ever perfect after being made so with your scissors give the red and black pom poms a bit of a trim all around to give them a nice even shape.
  6. Like so, nice and neat circles.
  7. The last step is to tie the pom poms together, using the centre yarn strips that you left long, and just hang on the wall and admire, use as a buggy accessory to keep baby amused, or make a few and make a mobile.


Cutting should be done by an adult.
