5 Minute Pom Poms

Fall is coming, and with it fall sports! Cheer on your favorite school or team with this simple no-sew craft! These Pom Poms take only 5 minutes to make, and you can customize them with your team or school colors!

To make your own pom poms you’ll need:

pom pom supplies

Oly*fun in your chosen colors
Wooden Clothespin (the old-fashioned notched kind)
Rotary Cutter

Cut your Oly*fun into 1″ strips. For each each pom pom, you’ll need 13 strips. If your strips aren’t perfectly 1″ wide, don’t worry – the texture of the pom pom will cover any imperfections.

cut strips

Make a stack out of 12 strips, putting the 13th strip aside.  Cut a notch in the center of the stack. The notch should be about as wide as the clothespin.

Wrap your 13th strip around the clothespin, leaving about a 4″ tail at the beginning of the wrap.
