Now that we are in the month of October, it is time to finally decorate the house and of course dress up your clothes for Halloween. But most people do not have much time to do a lot of decoration or dressing up. Well, that is kind of the story of my life.
Making something that takes almost no time at all, would be ideal for anyone, so I came up with the idea of making spider pom-pom’s to add them to my beanies and clothes. And of course they are also perfect all around the house as decoration.
These spider pom-pom’s are so easy to make and do not require a lot of materials to make them. I have below listed the exact items I used, so you can replicate the spider pom-pom’s I made.
Furthermore, I made a photo and video tutorial to help you make as many spider pom-pom’s as you like.
Be sure to share your spider pom-pom’s with me on Facebook or Instagram by tagging me with @nickishomemadecrafts or on twitter using the tag @nickiscrafts. I would love to see what you used you spider pom-pom’s for.
So let’s get started with making the awesome and cute looking spider pom-pom’s. I used the large pom-pom maker of a set of 4 I bought. Feel free to make little one’s as well or tie and glue them all together to make a giant spider using pom-pom’s.
Materials (click on the names to see how it looks like):
1. First, you will collect all you materials and start making the pom-pom using worsted weighted black yarn. Feel free to use other yarn or colors, but you be aware that the pom-pom will look different, especially when you use different weighted yarn such as bulky.
2. Once you gave your pom-pom a haircut, spread the yarn you used to tie up the pom-pom and add some hot glue. Also take 4 pip cleaners and twist them right in the middle together, like the picture shows below.
3. Next, you will lay the twisted pipe cleaners on top of the hot glue and tie them up using the yarn strings that you used to tie off the pom-pom.
4. Finally, you will add the eyes you like to your pom-pom that will now turn into a spider pom-pom. You can now use the spider pom-pom for whatever you want, whether it is to decorate your house, your yard or you clothes.
I used my spider pom-pom’s for a hat. Check it out HERE how that looks like. My son sure loves his new Spider Pom-Pom Hat.
