It’s been a while since we’ve crafted some adorable pom-pom pals. Today’s pals make such cute pom-pom Halloween decor. And they’re a fun craft project for all ages!
Follow our tutorial below to learn how to craft your own pom-pom spider, pumpkin, and ghost friends. Then browse our Halloween projects page to see what else you can make!
Pumpkin, ghosts, and spiders are a great Halloween trio. You can craft them now to decorate your mantel, shelf, or table. Or make them for your Halloween party.
You will see in our tools list below that we used our pom-pom maker to craft medium and small poms. Then we trimmed our poms to create the shapes we wanted for our pom-pom Halloween decor. After that, you’ll simply use your felt to create the pumpkin stem and your wire to craft the spider’s legs. Lastly, you’ll use your hot glue gun to attach the stem, legs, and safety eyes to your various pom-pom pals.
There are so many other fun pom-pom crafts you can make with your pom-pom maker, so we highly suggest grabbing one — especially if you’re crafting with kiddos! Some other fun Halloween ideas are our felt boo banner, which would look really cute with your pom-pom Halloween decor. And so would these mini metallic trees.
Once you’ve crafted all your Halloween projects from our site, make sure to share them with us! Post pictures and tag @liagriffith or #MadeWithLia so we can see them. Happy Halloween crafting, friends!
