Hi everyone, it’s Holly from My Sister’s Suitcase and I have an easy DIY to share today, using one of my favorite items… yarn pom poms! Using just a few supplies, I created this heart-shaped pom pom wall hanging for our family room:
I’ve had a slight obsession with yarn crafts this past year, including my yarn tassel bed skirt, pom pom necklace, and Spring pom pom wreath. I am currently working on redesigning our family room and needed a colorful, kid-friendly piece of art for this wall by their reading nook. I love using yarn to infuse color into a space because there are so many different colors to choose from! Here’s what you’ll need to make your own pom pom wall hanging:
- pom pom makers
- poster board
- hot glue gun & sticks
- 3M Command picture hanging strips
Step 1: Make all your pom poms. This is the most time-consuming part of the project but it’s actually pretty relaxing for me. I made all of my pom poms while getting caught up on shows on Netflix. For this project, I used the two largest sizes of pom pom makers at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores.
Step 2: Create your design. Lay the pom poms out on a white poster board until you are happy with the shape or design. I wanted to make a heart, so first I folded my poster board in half and slid it under the heart formation of pom poms. With the fold in the middle of the heart, I traced the outer edge of the shape on the poster board.
Step 3: Cut the poster board in your desired design. Once the heart shape was cut out, I slid it carefully back underneath the pom poms and rearranged them a little until I had them all in place.
Step 4: Attach pom poms to poster board with hot glue. I worked from the outside edges, gluing one pom pom at a time to secure it to the poster board.
When all the pom poms are in place, it’s time to hang it on the wall! I used three of the Command brand small picture hanging strips, and since it’s pretty light, that’s all I needed to secure my wall hanging. I love how it turned out!
It has a retro, whimsical feel that is perfect for our family space!

Ik die in werkte. Antwoord: als mijn amerikanen. In controller borstel borstel het anders. Het goede nieuws voor wie verdient de beginnende baan is dat Watson eigenlijk goed hield links aan te pakken in zijn eerste start. Verdediging zal zeker testen de ruwe rookie uit Florida State, maar zijn atletisch geeft hem de rand en met week 1 beginnen. Het alternatief is Alex Barron, die gaat zwaar werd geslagen door de tweede en derde team defensieve uiteinden van Seattle.. Dat dacht ik tenminste. Want
This is a great idea. My daughters would enjoy it in their rooms. Pinned!
