Candy Corn Pom Poms

Sooo, I kinda like yarn… and I kinda {love} pom poms.  I’ve shared DIY Pom Pom Garland and pom pom flowers. Today I’m sharing Candy Corn Pom Poms. Oh. My. Goodness!  All kinds of cuteness!!

Candy Corn Pom Pom Garland with livelaughrowe.comI was at JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores recently buying some supplies and I had a thought — candy corn inspired pom poms.  I even stood in the store and Google it to see if they had been done.  Of course they were out there, but none like I had envisioned (now someone may prove me wrong and that’s okay).  So, here we are!  I grabbed my handy dandy Clover Pom Pom Makers, some orangeyellow and white yarn along with scissors and I was ready to roll.  Let’s do this. (p.s. If you don’t have pom pom makers, try the fork pom pom method, it works great too!)

Candy Corn Pom Poms with livelaughrowe.comStep One:
Wrap the yarn around the pom pom maker, as instructed on packaging.  To get the pom pom to layer like a candy corn, you’ll want to wrap the yarn in sections.  White, Orange and then Yellow.

Step Two:
Once all the yarn is wrapped, you’ll pull both halves in to make the circle.

Step Three:
You’ll cut around the circle and wrap a piece of yarn around the pom pom maker to tie everything together.

Step Four:
Trim the strand you used to tie everything together and your candy corn pom pom is born!

    Hi, Kelly! I love these candy corn pom poms so much and i am about to order the pom pom makers on Amazon. Did you use all four sizes, from the large and small makers, for the garland? Also, can you tell me how you attached the pom poms to the twine to actually make the garland? Sorry, I am a little bit craft challenged, but I try! Thanks!

      Hi Angie! I’m so glad you like them. Yes, I used all four sizes and I used a yarn needle to string them onto the twine. It works like a charm. Happy crafting!! xo

    I used to make pom poms with 2 pieces of cardboard. First we matched up two pieces of cardboard. Drew a largish circle using a compass and then a smaller one in the center of the large circle. We cut them out, making sure to keep the “doughnut” shape intact. Then we wound wool all around. This is not as simple as a pom pom maker, but worked if we kept our yarn balls small to go through the center hole. Cut the outside yarn and wind a little yarn between the two cardboard circles and tie it firmly. Remove cardboard and voila! Frugal pom poms!

    This is a great way to have the cuteness of candy corn without the calories! I’ll be featuring this on The Crafty Crow soon!
