Pom Pom Ornaments

Posted by  ·  December 4, 2008  ·  Last Updated: December 4, 2008

I remember making candy cane ornaments like these YEARS ago in Sunday school. I had a nice time reliving those memories with my daughter yesterday.

We used 1 inch pom poms, tacky glue, recycled cardboard from soda and cereal boxes, a hole punch and a piece of ribbon for hanging (and for a bow on the wreath). After the shapes are cut I would punch the hole for hanging and add the ribbon for hanging before adding the pom poms. It will be more difficult later. If you would like to use the shapes we used you may download them here.

I cut out the shapes for my daughter and we applied lots of glue. She then carefully placed each  pom pom on the cardboard.  When she was finished I sat a dinner plate on top for a few minutes to get the edges of the pom poms glued to the cardboard.

She was so proud when she hung them on the Christmas tree last night!

    Remember to your child's name and the year on the back. I have so many from even my kids were small and I don't remember what each child made and their age when they many it. I lost some memories after some surgeries and wish everything had names and dates.

    Couldn't you glue these on both sides and have an ornament that will look great from both sides?

    Do you have any ideas as to what my 6 year old and 3 year old can make as gifts for each other. Something not necessarily Christmas but something playful or useful they can make?
