Every once in a while it’s nice to find an easy holiday DIY. Don’t get me wrong, I am the queen of long and drawn out DIY’s. But when I was at home goods and saw some adorable pom pom trees for $29.00 each I decided it was DIY time. So I went to Hobby Lobby and found everything I needed for pom pom Christmas trees! And of course, it was on sale. So my cost for each tree was less than $10.
What You Will Need
- Cardboard trees, in assorted sizes
- Five Pom pom strands, measuring two yards long
- White acrylic paint
- Glue gun
The first thing you need to do is paint each of the cardboard trees. I didn’t want any of the cardboard showing through and this easily solved the problem.
Starting at the bottom, attach the first row of pom poms with the glue gun. When you start the second row try to place the pom poms in between the poms in the first row.
Continue working your way up the cardboard tree. When you run out of a strand, just place the new one in the next spot and continue adhering with the glue gun.
When you get to the top glue the last pom on the top and cut off the remaining part of the strand.
See how easy that was? I promise you this won’t take more than ten to fifteen minutes.
Aren’t they adorable?
