felt & yarn pom pom flamingos

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!
