DIY Pom Pom Rainbow Craft

I have a tween who LOVES to craft and I’ve found that it’s been a fun way for the two of us to connect. We are always on the lookout for craft supplies and believe it or not, we find quite a few at thrift stores and garage sales. 

This fun pom pom rainbow craft is one that uses very little supplies and the finished result is so darling!

This might be a fun one to make for Valentine’s Day. 

*Also – fun side note. Anyone else confused on how to spell Pom Pom???

pompom  or pom pom– also spelled pom-pon, pompom or pompon – is a decorative ball or tuft of fibrous material. The term may refer to large tufts used by cheerleaders, or a small, tighter ball attached to the top of a hat, also known as a bobble or toorie.

Yea. So there’s that. I incorporated a few of those different spellings into my post here, just to be fair. 

Now back to our Pom-Pom Craft

How to make a Pom Pom Rainbow

Craft Template for rainbow

Step ONE: 

Trace a round shape on the craft foam sheet (any size of your choice). Cut out the traced round shape from the craft foam sheet. Collect pompoms for the rainbow craft. I’m using the rainbow color scheme and using white pompoms for the cloud.

Step TWO: 

Prepare the hot glue gun and start gluing the pompoms from the outer edge of the round cutout foam sheet. Cover about half of the foam sheet with the rainbow pattern and the other half with the pompom cloud pattern.

You can create different patterns using pompoms as well. We LOVE pom pom crafts so as I mentioned above, we try to keep an eye out for them when we are thrifting because there are so many fun things you can do with them!
