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

Directions to make Pom Pom Flower Magnets
1. Cut out a piece of cardboard. We like to use cardboard from a cereal box or snack box.
2. Trace around the flower template. You can get the template at the bottom of the post.
3. Cut out the flower.
Also cut out the smaller inside circle. You can bend the cardboard slightly to make a cut mark inside this part to cut it out.
4. Start gluing on one color of pom pom around the center circle. We used orange.
5. Pick another color for the petals and use different shades of the color of your choice. We chose pink for the petals.
5. Keep gluing the pom poms on until you have filled the whole cardboard.
6. Paint a popsicle stick green and glue 2 green pom poms on for the leaves.
7. Glue the popsicle stick to the back of the flower.
8. Glue or tape a photo onto the back of the flower.
9. Optional step – if you want to turn the flower into a magnet then use an adhesive magnet on the back.
These flowers would make excellent gifts for Mother’s Day! Customize the colors of the pom poms to make them multicolored or in Mom’s favorite color!
