Learn How to Make a Pom Pom Tree for Holiday Decor. An Easy DIY Craft Tutorial Idea for handmade Christmas Decorations that can be up all year!
I am obsessed with pom poms right now! They are so much fun to create and craft with!
Recently I made this super cute pom pom tree! It started as a Christmas decoration, but after making it I realized this cute tree could stay up all year long. Pine trees fit lots of different design styles, especially rustic, which is totally my jam!
To make a Pom Pom Tree of course you will need lots of Pom Poms. I recently shared a post with a video about How to Make Pom Poms with the We R Memory Keepers Pom Pom Maker. So this post is a great place to start!

How to Make a Pom Pom Tree
To start, you’ll need to have a total of about 75 pom poms in the small, medium and large sizes. This is for a cone that is about 17-inches tall. That number may be different depending on the size of cone you are working with.
Making the tree is really quite easy! Simply put some hot glue in the center of the pom pom and press onto the cone.
I started going around the bottom of the cone and then added random sizes of pom poms all over the cone.
I was originally going to start at the bottom with the large pom pom and move up to the top of the cone with small. But I really like this random look. I think it looks more life-like. There are no perfect shaped trees!
Cover the entire cone with pom poms. For the tippy top add 1 more small pom pom and secure with hot glue.
To add decorations, you can use smaller pom poms or miniature tree decorations.
In the video above, I said to glue on pom poms or decorations. But after the tree was complete and I was playing with it I realized you don’t have to hot glue the decorations to be secure. They actually stay quite well just being pushed into the tree. That really makes it easy to keep the tree up all year long!
I really do love how the pom pom tree looks all decorated and ready for the Christmas season!
The yarn I used is a twist of dark green and tan, and I think it almost looks like a pine tree dusted with snow!
This awesome Pom Pom Tree will definitely be in my decor throughout the entire year. I think I may need to make more in a couple of different sizes as well!
How do you like the tree best? Decorated for the Holidays or ready for all year display?
