I love when something super adorable turns out to be equally easy and cheap to make yourself! These DIY tulle pom-poms are exactly that. They take no time at all to make, and tulle is super cheap! They are also very affordable – around $0.50 each!
You can make these pom-poms as small, or as large as you want. The form you use to make them will ensure you make them the exact same size too, so you don’t have to measure or eyeball anything. These are great for decor in a kid’s room, birthday party decor, baby shower decor, and more. Once you have the form made, you can make these from start to finish in less than five minutes.
Roll of tulle
Piece of cardboard (as large as you want your pom0pom or larger)
Fishing line or clear thread
Make your cardboard forms. The simplest way to do this is to trace a bowl, so you have a perfect circle.
Then, measure to find the center of the circle and cut another smaller one (see photo above).
Note: The lager the center hole the smaller your pom-poms.
Wrap the tulle around the center of the circle (as shown above). To being, line up the tulle with the edge of the circle and then end it at the same place. That ensures that the entire pom stays even.
Cut another piece of tulle that’s around 8″-10″ long. Tie it through the center hole (see photo above). Make sure you tie it very tightly to ensure you have a fluffy pom-pom.
Tip: If you want to hang the pom-pom, I suggest typing on the clear string or fishing line to the piece of tulle you tied the center of the pom-pom with before cutting the edges.
Cut through the tulle on both sides along the circle’s edges. Then, pull it through the center hole. Fluff your pom-pom and you are done!
Make different size forms to create fun dimension in your pom-poms, or make them all exactly the same size by using the same size form! The possibilities are endless!
