The best thing about making your own Christmas decorations is that you don’t have to follow the tutorial exactly. You can create an ornament that shows off your individual style, or add a few little extra touches to make them extra special.

Here are some fun ideas to try:

Use different coloured pom poms

Instead of red and green, add in other festive colours such as gold, silver or white. Or skip traditional colours completely and create rainbow pom pom decorations instead.

You could even make your own mini pom poms to go into your ornaments instead. This will keep the kids busy much longer if they are making their own.

This can be done using cardboard, or get a pom pom making kit to make it even easier.

Add names to your decorations

If you are planning to gift your pom pom decorations, adding the recipient’s name is a wonderful personal touch. They would make the perfect end of year class gifts for kids.

You could do this using a glitter pen if you have tidy handwriting. Or use adhesive letter stickers.

For a more professional look, a vinyl cutting machine with adhesive vinyl is perfect for this purpose, such as a Cricut cutting machine or a Silhouette Cameo.

Add a Bow

Dress up your handmade decoration by adding a bow at the top. This is a cute, yet simple extra touch you can add with craft glue using a ribbon of your choice.
