Pom pom star ornaments – Easy toddler Christmas craft

These pom pom star ornaments are an easy toddler Christmas ornament craft for preschoolers. There’s not too much of a mess and the result is pretty on the Christmas tree. You can use snowy white pom poms or opt for red and green (or even multicolour!).

All you need for this simple craft are pom poms, glue, a star form, ribbon, and scissors!

Supplies: Snowy pom poms star ornament craft

December is a great time for crafting. Making ornaments for the tree is a fun way to add a personal touch to your festive decorations (and keep the little ones busy!). It’s also a fun ornament to make because your kids can get as creative as they want. Maybe they want to add some iridescent pink sequins or some multi-color beads… This craft is pretty open-ended!

Here are the supplies you’ll need for the snowy pom pom star ornament project:

  • White Pom Poms
  • Non-Toxic Glue
  • Star Form (Wire, Cardboard, Wood, et cetera)
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors

Get everything together before starting the pom pom star ornament! Because this is geared for toddlers, you’ll want to keep the craft pretty simple and quick. That’s why we opted to use an already made pack of star forms – The two-sided design gave the option for extended creativity, but the actual crafting was appropriate for their attention span.

That being said, you could make it a two-part craft if you want to design your own star shape! Or, if your little ones are really into crafting, you may be able to get away with making the star and decorating it in one go… It all depends on your littles!

How to Make Pom Pom Star Ornaments

Here are the steps for making pom pom star ornaments for the Christmas tree:

  1. Place a bit of glue on a protected surface.
  2. Dip a pom pom into the glue so it gets a bit of glue on it.
  3. Stick the pom pom to the star form.
  4. Continue gluing on more pom poms.
  5. Let dry.
  6. Thread a piece of ribbon through the top of the ornament.

There you go! Once it dries, you’re ready to hang your new decoration. Because the material we used isn’t weatherproof, we decided it was an indoor decoration.

That’s how to make pom pom star ornaments! Here are some photos of the process. The toddler making these ornaments is about two and a half:
