Oh what fun flamingos are! These pom pom flamingos that Krista came up with are such a cute craft for kids and adults. Plus you can use them in different ways, like adding a key ring to create a keychain or hanging multiple to make a garland.

Though our tutorial shows only the small pom pom maker, our PDF template includes two other sizes if you want to make larger pom pom flamingos. Just check out our supplies list below to get started!

Flamingo Fun

To create these pom pom flamingos, we used yarn for the fluffy “feathers,” embroidery floss for the legs, and felt pieces for the head and feet. The final step is adding a loop at the top of the flamingo, making it easy to add to a key ring or garland. If you decide to make your own garland, you could even add some small tropical flowers and leaves from this felt tropical garland.

Skill level: Beginner

Crafting tip: Using acrylic yarn makes for a fluffier pom pom!

How to Make Pom Pom Flamingos

  1. Gather your tools and materials. Then download our template below.
  2. Cut out felt according to template using scissors or a cutting machine with a rotary blade. We are using the “small” flamingo with the small maker.
  3. With an arm of the pom pom maker open, firmly wind yarn from one end of the half circle to the other.
  4. Repeat, winding yarn on the other half.
