This Christmas ornament craft idea is simple enough for preschoolers to do, but kids of any age will enjoy making them!

Sparkly Pom Pom Ornaments for Kids to Make

Jonathan (age 3, almost 4) and I enjoyed making these ornaments together.  They turned out so cute!  Here’s what you need to make them:

  • 1.5 inch wooden balls (I found them at Hobby Lobby but I bet Michael’s has them too).  Or use styrofoam balls.  I think that the wood gives it a nice weight without it being too heavy, though.
  • Sparkly pom pom balls (I found these at Michael’s)
  • Ribbon
  • Glue – we used hot glue, but Tacky Glue would also work well.

First, glue a loop of ribbon to the wooden ball.

Then just cover with pom pom balls!  Super easy.  We used hot glue because I wanted them to dry instantly.  I did the glue and Jonathan did the pom pom balls, and it worked really well!

    Love this idea and am gonna to try it with my class. A suggestion I have is to perhaps use pre-scented wooden balls like those used for aromatherapy or make your own scented ones by adding essential oils to the wooden ball. These would make a cool kid-made gift and can even be sold at school craft markers for funraising
