You can make this as a craft keepsake or you can add a magnet to the back of these pom pom flowers to jazz up your fridge for spring! It’s the perfect way to display school photos too.


Supplies needed to make a Pom Pom Flower Magnet

Here are the supplies you will need to make this pom pom craft:

  • Pom Poms
  • Cardboard  – cardboard from a cereal box or snack box is perfect for this craft
  • White Glue – we like this brand because it’s stronger and easier for gluing pom poms which can be tricky. Make sure to allow enough time for the glue to dry.
  • Popsicle Sticks
  • Green Paint
  • Adhesive Magnets
  • Scissors
  • Flower Template – see the bottom of the post for the link!

      Because the template may print out differently on different printers for size I would recommend printing off the template and then using a ruler to see how wide the circle inside is of the flower. Hope that helps!
