Pompoms are everywhere right now in the craft world. I got a book in the mail called Adventures in Pompom Land: 25 Cute Projects Made from Handmade Pompoms. The book is a collection of small animals that you can make from pom poms. I didn’t feel ready enough to tackle an animal but it did open my eyes to the fact that pom poms can be shaped. So I made up a batch of pom poms and shaped them into Easter Eggs. Ready to learn a little bit about making yarn Easter eggs?  

Supplies needed to make pom pom Easter eggs:

  • Yarn in any color you love
  • 3″ x 5″ piece of cardboard
  • Hemp twine
  • Scissors

How to Make Yarn Easter Eggs:

Begin by wrapping your yarn around your cardboard piece.

The pom poms in the book all used A LOT of yarn. They were very dense. So wrap, wrap, wrap until you have a bunch of yarn on your cardboard.

Then crease the cardboard down the center and make a “tunnel”.

Slip a piece of the hemp twine into the tunnel and tie off the yarn in the center.

The bundle will then slip off of the cardboard piece.

Then wrap the hemp around the back of the bundle and tie it off. Each knot should be tied just as tight as you can get it.

Then bring the hemp around the front once more and tie again. This is just for some extra insurance. Cut off any excess hemp cording with scissors.

Now we are ready to snip those yarn loops. Pull them with scissors and cut them a small bunch at a time.

When you are done, you will have one wild-looking pom pom. But don’t worry we are going to fix it.

Trim, trim, and trim some more with scissors. Gradually take away the frazzled ends and shape the pom pom into an egg. As you can see, you really are transforming the pom pom and you have to take a lot off to get them to look like this. This is the perfect part for the kiddos to help with. Give them a pair of scissors and let them give these guys a haircut.
