Pom Pom Valentine Craft Monsters

If you’re looking for an easy Valentine’s Day craft to make with the kids then you’re in luck! Today I’m sharing a tutorial on how to make pom pom valentine craft monsters with heart antennas. These are great for kids to play with at home and easy enough to make in large quantities for classroom valentines.

Valentine-craft-monsters-Crafts-Unleashed-yarnFor this project, I used the large pom pom maker in the pack of three. This little tool comes in handy and the pack has a small, medium, and large pom pom maker. Now that I think of it, a “family” of monsters in varying sizes would also be fun for the kids to play with. Another fun project with yarn pom poms is to string them with baker’s twine to create a festive garland for the mantel.

Using the pom pom maker, I wrapped the yarn around several times to make a thick pom pom. The more yarn you use the easier it is for the “monster” to stand.

To make the valentine craft monsters, we used a 3-4 inch chenille stem folded in half for the antenna. We took foam hearts and glued them onto the stem then glued that onto the top of the pom pom. Also glue on the moveable eyes to finish off the valentine craft monster’s face. Allow the glue to dry completely before picking the pom pom up.
