I like making fast and easy pompoms that we can make with no extra elements; but, use the pompom making technique that’s best for you! I make pompoms by:
- Wrapping yarn around 3 fingers. 80 times.
- Cut about 1 foot of yarn and tie off the middle.
- Shape into Heart Shape.
- Add Bells (Optional: like these) and Attach to skates.

Pompoms seem to be popping up everywhere: my daughter has them on pillows, on baskets, blankets and on slippers: but, as I recently took a skate around our local pond, I didn’t see them on the ice. I grew up with the a pair of light blue pompoms that had a silver bell. I can remember absolutely everything about them: how much they weighed, how soft they were and the shimmering blue tones. These are the small memories I just love to imagine are layed anytime I make or add something like these for my kids.
A few years ago, I threw a “Let’s Skate. 8 is great”-birthday party for our daughter and made Pompoms for all of her friends skates. We had a ball planning it and it was really a hit of a party. This Valentine Version happened in an ah -ha moment, when I laid my eyes on some Heart-shaped Pompoms that I had attached to a basket in my dining room. Voila! Perfect for Valentine’s Day!*
These brightly colored heart-shaped pompoms are perfectly paired with brightly coloured cheeks and racing hearts when skating. I loved these from my childhood and still love them, today. They’re so easy to add. Make these Heart-Shaped Pompoms for your Ice Skates in one sitting. Make these for yourself, for your kids or to give away as a Valentine’s Gifts, this year!
(*If you’re an under ten, friend of the family, act surprised when you receive yours in the mail this year. And, on that note: if you are a kid who’s reading my blog, I feel like I could send YOU fan mail! Seriously and I’m just thrilled when I hear from parents who tell me that their kids are here, too. I still love pictures and written steps although I feel like kids are really moving to youtube and video for instruction? Do you wish I’d add video? Is there something else that you wish for, with kids, instructions? )
Happy Pompom Day. I hope you’ve enjoyed this idea and would love to see them if you make them or if you share this tutorial with a friend! It’s easy to share these with me on INSTAGRAM and FACEBOOK. I wish you a very happy Willowday.
