DIY Pom Pom Cake Toppers

It’s true.  I love making cake toppers!  Since baking cakes is not my specialty… it has become super important to make sure I can place something on top to make it look fabulous.  I’ve made bat cake toppers, a mini-cake bunting and now I am going to show you how to make your own pom pom cake toppers!

A little yarn and a few wooden dowel sticks is all it takes to create  this easy and super fun cake decoration!

Supplies needed to make your own pom pom cake toppers:

Step One: Gather all of your supplies and begin making the pom poms.  The pom pom kit by Darice has three sizes of pom poms that you are able to make – I chose to make the medium sized ones.  Make six poms of the same size according to the directions on the package.  They do a fabulous job of instructing you know how to make them!

Step Two:  I ended up making three pink poms, two of the plum, and one of the orchids.  Make sure to trim away any stray strands of yarn.

Step Three:  Now,  you will attach the pom poms to the wooden dowel rods.  I simply pushed the stick into the center of the pom pom.  You may want to trim the ends of your dowels to allow for differing heights.

Step Four:  Insert your cake toppers into the cake and you are done!

    My daughter and I have been thinking of ways to make some pompoms from paper, sticks, glue, tapes and sometimes crayons when she wanted multicored ones- it’s really messy and tiring for both of us. I could use this helpful tip! Thank you!
