Tinkering with pompons for creative and playful DIY gift wrapping ideas

Big bobbles, small bobbles, bobbles made of wool and felt, with and without a glitter effect – the variety of these likeable accessories, which for a long time no longer just adorns clothes, encourages a wide variety of craft ideas. A pom pom garland as a party decoration or as a decoration for pillows and blankets are just two of the many possible uses. Today we would like to give you a few ideas on how you can decorate a gift box with them. Are you ready to start tinkering with pompons? Well, let’s get started right away!

Handicrafts with pompons – colorful gift packaging ideas

Probably the easiest way to design the gift wrapping is to distribute such tiny felt pompons in different colors on the wrapping paper after you’ve wrapped the gift. These are fixed with hot glue or other glue. You are also welcome to make a bobble out of wool instead of the classic bow and wrap it around the package with pretty thread.

Make packaging with bobbles in bright colors for carnival and birthday

Choose the colors depending on the occasion (e.g. brightly colored for a birthday and in white, green and red for Christmas) and in this way create gift packaging that matches the theme.

Instead of normal yarn or ribbon, you can also use bobble ribbon and kill two birds with one stone – you tie the package together and use bobbles at the same time!

Colorful accent on the present

This pretty arrangement of colorful pompons in different sizes is reminiscent of flowers. You can put them together according to your taste. For the example above, a lot of woolen threads in bright colors were first put together and glued to the gift packaging. The pompons were then arranged over them. Don’t glue them straight away, experiment with the positions first. Then use glue to hold the pompoms in place.

Tinker motifs with pompons – animals and fruits

Even small motifs and figures can be tinkered with the small pompons. These cute sheep, for example, consist of three rows of white pompons – first three pompons, then four and then three more, which are then provided with a head and legs with a black marker. They are a great subject for a baby shower.

If you make animals out of pompons, you can also use other materials. For this purpose, a pink pipe cleaner was used for the flamingo, which forms the long neck. A pink bobble of wool shapes the body, and the legs are made from the hanging ends of the wool thread that was used to tie the package.

Make fruits with pompons - cherries, lemons and limes with leaves of paper

Small fruits made from pom-poms, which you can get quickly and easily by combining the right color (e.g. red for cherries and apples, yellow for lemons, green for limes) with a few sheets of felt or paper, also have a nice summery look. First glue the leaves onto the wrapping paper and then glue the pompons, which overlap the leaves a little.

Tinker with pompons and twigs

Especially for an occasion in winter, whether a birthday, normal party or Christmas, simple branches are a great basis for decorating gifts. By simply gluing small pompons to the branches, it will appear as if they are berries. This way you can make a chic and simple gift wrap. However, if you want it to be more cheerful and colorful, take the second idea as inspiration: A thick branch has been decorated with brightly colored and large pompons.
