Learn how to make beautiful ruffle pom poms in this quick and easy DIY! We used crepe paper to craft our ruffle pom poms, tissue paper or thin fabric are great alternatives. Ruffle pom poms look very fluffy and elegant and are a great decoration for weddings, showers, parties and home décor. Instead of crepe paper, you can also make the ruffle pom poms with other thin papers such as tissue paper, kite paper, or printer paper and even lightweight fabrics. We don’t recommend card stock or felt as these materials are to thick and inelastic for this DIY.

Prep Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour
Difficulty easy

Materials

  • Styrofoam ball (We used balls with diameters of 15 cm / 6 in and 10 cm / 4 in)
  • screw-eye or screw-in-hook
  • crepe paper, tissue paper or light fabric
  • hot glue sticks
  • pencil
  • printable template (download below)

Tools

  • craft scissors
  • hot glue gun
  • tumbler or cup to hold the Styrofoam ball

Instructions

  1. Prep the Styrofoam ball. Twist a screw-eye or screw-in-hook into the Styrofoam ball. We’ll use the hook to hang the pom poms later. The DIY works with all sizes of Styrofoam balls, just keep in mind the bigger the Styrofoam ball is, the more ruffles you will have to create.
  2. Cut out paper circles. Fold a piece of paper a couple of times so that the circle template will fit. Trace the shape of the template with a pencil or pen and cut out the circles. Cutting out circles from a stack of paper helps to quicken this process.
  3. Shape the ruffles. To mark the center, fold each paper circle in half and then quarters. Unfold the paper and add a small amount of hot glue into the middle of the circle. Fold in half again and add another dot of hot glue to the bottom of the semicircle. Pinch the paper together and fluff out the ruffle to your liking. And please be careful when handling hot glue, so you don’t burn yourself.
  4. Attach the ruffles. Place the Styrofoam ball on a tumbler or cup. Apply a little hot glue to the bottom of a ruffle and attach firmly to the Styrofoam. Attach ruffles relatively close to each other and add ruffles to fill in bare spots. Once the pom pom is almost finished, pick it up from the tumbler or cup and, holding it by the screw-eye, cover the bottom of the ball with ruffles. Thread ribbon or twine through the hook and hang the pom pom.
