Easy DIY Crafts: Pom Pom Frame

75 Shares

Good Morning!! Welcome to my site. Today I am sharing a super fun and easy DIY craft that I completed with my children a few weeks ago! This pom pom frame was super fun and it’s a great keepsake to mark the times.

We will never forget what happened in 2020, and I hope that we can look back on it and say that we came out on the other side stronger as a family.

So I had my kids decorate these Dollar Tree frames with pom poms, put in a current picture, and then write on the back that we survived this 2020 pandemic.

I think it’s important to be honest about what’s going on, and we were able to turn this time into something positive.

In general, I really just love talking about crafts and sharing ideas on how to make learning and life fun and simple, so if you want even more great finds, check out my posts on the kids coupon book and a great post on zoo animal crafts.

Easy DIY Pom Pom Craft

Craft Materials

  1. I grabbed a few wooden craft frames from the store. ( I used ones like this frame)
  2. I also grabbed a bag of poms poms like this as well. Be creative! You can get whatever size and color you want. We have used pom poms for sooo many crafts so I always get the big bag.
  3. I used regular old Elmers glue for the Pom Pom gluing.
  4. I printed out some camera photos from my phone using this glossy paper. (My fav)

Craft Instructions

So this is obviously a fairly simple and straightforward project, but this is what we did to complete the easy DIY activity!

  1. So that my toddler and preschooler could actively participate, I poured the glue onto paper and allowed them to dip the pom poms into the glue and stick it on the frame.
  2. The glue obviously will not dry right away, so I had the kids LIGHTLY place the pom poms on the frame so that the glue will not be spread thin, but will dry in place! So no smushing 🙂
  3. Because our pom poms came in different sizes, I had the kids place all the big pom poms on the frame first, then fill in spots with the medium pom poms, and lastly, fill in the smaller spots with the smallest pompoms.
  4. Next I went through the frame and added glue to the bottom of some of the more loose pompoms.
  5. Finally we let the pom pom frames dry for a few hours. The longer you wait, the better! I wanted to use regular glue so that the kids could truly participate.
  6. The last step was adding the picture and writing your message on the back!

    Hi Kayla, What a great idea to put pom poms on a picture frame. I love the fact that you really allowed the kids to muck in and participate and used kid friendly glue. 

    These are simple instuctions that are easy to follow and the materials that are required are everyday items. I will be doing this craft with my granddaughter next time we are together and I will share your great post.

    Thank you, Liné

      Thank you for your comment and share. Yes it is super important to make sure the kiddies and participate fully. I hope you and your granddaughter enjoy!

    Who doesn’t love Pom-Poms?  What a fun project for the kids.  Even those who are a bit older can have fun with this idea by color choices for their rooms.  This gives the kids frame they can change pictures in and enjoy for a long time.  The hands-on projects are so good for kids(adults too)

    Keeping kids crafts in proper scale for the kids to truly enjoy is sometimes difficult, but this one seems to fill the ticket for one that can be their own.

    We will check back to see what else you have come up with to help our kids be creative. Is there a preferred Pom-Pom?  Or are they all made from the same material, or does it really not matter?

      Thanks for your comment! Nope it doesn’t matter at all. You can be creative as you want to be and use any pom poms you like

    I like it how you are using this time to have fun with your kids. The COVID-19 pandemic is a very stressful moment for a lot of people across the globe, and unlike you, many don’t know how to cope with the intense restrictions by the temporary quarantine. I hope you, and your family stays well, and if possible you can become a mentor for other parents who have a tough time coping with this quarantine.
