Pom pom crafts don't always need to be perfectly round! Play with the shape of your DIY pom poms and make Easter eggs for your mantel this spring. This darling craft is so easy and will keep your hands busy while watching TV or listening to an audiobook.

Make a basic pom pom and turn it into an Easter egg decoration following this tutorial. You'll get to practice making pom poms and take your time trimming the ball of yarn into a darling egg shape. You can even include designs in the Easter eggs by using multiple yarn colors! Once finished, these Easter eggs will stand on their own and be a sweet decoration for your mantel for years to come.

Materials List

  • Yarn in any color you love
  • 3″ x 5″ piece of cardboard
  • Hemp twine
  • Scissors


  1. Begin by wrapping your yarn around your cardboard piece.  

  2. The pompoms in the book all used A LOT of yarn.  They were very dense.  So wrap, wrap, wrap until you have a bunch of yarn on your cardboard.

  3. I then creased the cardboard down the center so I could make a “tunnel”.

  4. I slipped my hemp into that tunnel and tied off my yarn in the center.  

  5. The bundle will then slip off of the cardboard piece.

  6. I then wrapped my hemp around the back of the bundle and tied.  Each knot should be tied just as tight as you can get it.

  7. I then brought my hemp around the front and tied again.  Just an extra insurance.  Cut off any excess hemp cording.

  8. Now we are ready to snip those loops.  Pull them with scissors and cut them a small bunch at a time.

  9. When you are done you have one wild looking pom pom.  But don’t worry we are going to fix it.

  10. Trim, trim, and trim some more with scissors.  Gradually take away the frazzled ends and shape the pom pom into an egg.  As you can see, you really are transforming the pom pom and you have to take a lot off to get them to look like this.  This is the perfect part for the kiddos to help with.  Give them a pair of scissors and let them give these guys a haircut.  

  11. Want a stripe in the center of your pompom egg?  Wrap your yarn like the picture below and then follow the instructions above. 

  12. Your pompom Easter eggs are ready to display.  Yep these are on my barn wood mantle.

  13. The little guys sit all on their own when you are done.

  14. What a great way to bring pom pom decor into your home for Easter.  Be sure to craft some of these Pom Pom Easter Eggs from yarn this holiday season.

I don't have a mantel anywhere in my apartment. If I did, though, I'd be down with the garland for special occasions. Fairy lights year round, though, because they're just so cute and create a warm atmosphere.
