Is there anything that goes together better than fall, yarn, and pumpkins?! When fall hits, I find myself wanting to make all the yarn crafts! And pom poms are no exception. I actually found a way to make giant pom poms and turn them into DIY large pom pom pumpkins! They are honestly quite simple to make, but oh my goodness are they fun to display!
Each pom pom pumpkin comes together in about 15-20 minutes, so it’s easy to create an assortment of them for your mantel or fall decor.
Supplies to make your own DIY large pom pom pumpkins:
Begin by wrapping your yarn around the cookie sheet. You will need to wrap roughly 2 skeins of yarn for each pumpkin. Feel free to use as many colors as you want for each pumpkin. The biggest thing to make sure of is to use a decent amount of yarn for each pumpkin to make sure that it is full.
Then cut down the other side and gently remove the tray letting the yarn pieces stay laying ontop of each other. Then cut an 18″ piece of yarn and use it to tie a knot around the center of the yarn strips.
When displaying your DIY giant pom pom pumpkins, try to tuck the bottom ends under the pumpkin to help it resemble the oblong pumpkin shape. If the multi color yarn look isn’t your thing, you can always go with pure orange yarn. I plan on making a few more so that I can fill my whole mantel with giant pom pom pumpkins!
