You are the Pom!

We have made several versions of crepe paper pomegranates over the past few years. So now it is time for a felt version! These felt pomegranates are a beginner-friendly craft project and offer new techniques to challenge the experienced crafter.

Our tutorial teaches how to make whole pomegranates as well as halves. In addition, the sliced version of the handmade felt pomegranates shows seeds. Krista teaches you how to create these by hand painting with non-toxic markers.

Once you have finished your handmade felt pomegranates, you can display them in a bowl, or decorate your holiday mantel or gift them to a little one for a play kitchen. We also added our 1cm wool felt balls for our display, though this is optional.

Stitches used: This project uses a blanket, ladder, and whip stitches. Want more guidance on these stitches? Check out our embroidery guide. Or you can watch our felt stuffie Skill Course to watch the techniques from start to finish.
