Learn how to make a pom pom Christmas tree with this simple and easy tutorial. This is the perfect way to create festive holiday decor that will look great in any home!
A simple non-shedding alternative for the holidays, our DIY Pom Pom Christmas Tree!
With Christmas, traveling, and family road trips just around the corner, I thought it would be fitting to have a few fun alternatives to the traditional family Christmas tree for the… not so-traditional Christmas.
On all of our travels recently, especially our recent cruise with Princess Cruises, it got us thinking about how not everyone plans to stay bundled up with chestnuts, a fire, and snowballs just outside their door for the holidays.
So obviously, various ways to celebrate for every climate and region are in order!
This isn’t to say there’s a specific part of the world that only uses paper pom poms for celebrating (if there was, I’d definitely be there)!
But this DIY Pom Pom Christmas Tree is a fun alternative to the traditional decor because the Caribbean doesn’t exactly call for a snowcapped Douglas fir tree.
Obviously, it needs something far more colorful!

How to Make a DIY Pom Pom Christmas Tree
The tomato cage will be the base of the tree so rest the largest circle on a flat surface as the bottom.
Step 1 – Start gluing tissue paper pom poms around the main metal circles.
Step 2 – Then, use balloons to fill the inner parts of the tree.
If you want the tree to last forever or for quite a long time, you can replace the balloons with tissue paper poms, too.
Step 3 – Continue gluing and filling up the empty spaces with poms, fringe, and balloons. Make sure the top staggers to a point, just like a traditional tree.
Step 4 – Once it’s full, add a spritz of yellow fringe at the top for the star, and you’ve got yourself a tree that can definitely withstand travel and appearances no matter what the weather may be!
