DIY Tinsel Pom Pom Gift ToppersHey guys, it’s Amy back with another DIY for ya! Today we’re talking gift wrap. I love a beautifully wrapped gift, but I also don’t have a ton of time to make something elaborate. Luckily what I have on deck today is simple to make, but still beautiful! These are as fun to make as they look and take no time at all. Hop down in front of your favorite TV show and before it’s over, you’ll be able to make enough pom poms for every gift you’ll be giving this season!


  • tinsel garland
  • scissors
  • string

Tinsel wrapped

Step 1: Wrap the end of the tinsel garland tightly around two fingers at least twice around. Wrap it around more times for a bigger pom pom, but too many times will make it look bulky, so watch out for this!

Step 2: Cut off the excess garland where it meets the starting end of the garland.

Step 3: Cut a piece of string long enough to wrap around the gift as many times as you’d like. The string I used here, for example, was long enough to wrap around the gift three times.

Step 4: Pull the string through the loop where your two fingers were, then double tie the string around the tinsel garland, making sure the loose ends of the garland are tied securely under the string.
