My niece is in her first term of college. Since she misses having a Christmas tree, I made her this mini pom pom tree to decorate her dorm room. This is an easy craft project that can bring some holiday cheer to small spaces.
Sort the Christmas pom poms by color. Hot glue several silver pom poms on the bottom of the egg.
The silver pom poms on the bottom make it look like the tree is on top of snow
Begin hot gluing the green, red and gold pom poms onto the egg. The red and gold pom poms are decorating the green tree.
I put about a dime sized bit of hot glue on the egg before sticking the pom pom on top of it.
Be careful not to burn yourself!
Mix in some silver pom poms so it looks like there is snow on the tree.
When I was about half way up the egg I stuck a toothpick in the top which gave me something to hold onto while I was gluing.
The egg easily stands up on it’s on.
After covering the egg completely glue four gold pom poms evenly spaced on the top. Then glue a fifth one on top of them. This is for the star decoration on top of the tree.
There will be some strings of glue hanging off the tree. These strings normally happen when hot glue gunning. Wait until the glue has dried and cooled completely. Then take a toothpick to pull the stray strings off.
Now your mini Christmas tree is complete! Revel in its’ cuteness.
