Homemade Halloween

So if you have been following me on Instagram http:// https://www.instagram.com/aproudhome/ you will know I am obsessed with any wool craft. Especially pom poms and tassels.

I love to make my own decorations for Halloween and Christmas. I made these cool pom pom/tassel pumpkins. This is also a fun craft to try with children while they are on the mid term break.

Wool Pumpkins


  • Wool
  • Scissors
  • Jumbo pom pom maker
  • Twigs/Sticks
Things you will need

I picked up some sticks and twigs in the park when I was walking my dog. I use these as the stalks for my wool pumpkins.

Using a hard piece of cardboard wrap your wool around several times. The more wool you use the thicker your tassel will be. You can choose different colours.

You can also make a wool pumpkin using a pom pom. I used a jumbo pom pom maker. You can get them here https://www.tinythings.ie/home/200-jumbo-pom-pom-maker.html?search_query=jumbo+pom+pom+maker&results=1
