We have an easy pom pom tutorial for our favorite “bug” of all, caterpillars! Perfect for imaginary and sensory play, these soft, bright caterpillars will delight children of all ages! All you need to make Pom Pom Caterpillars is: pom poms, wiggly eyes, embroidery floss, a sewing needle, hot glue, and scissors."

Primary TechniqueGeneral Crafts


Materials List

  • pom poms
  • wiggly eyes
  • embroidery floss
  • a sewing needle
  • hot glue
  • scissors


  1. Begin by threading your needle.

  2. Pull the thread directly through the middle of the pom poms. Be sure to tie the end off!

  3. Repeat until all of the pom poms are strung. Tie off the string and trim the excess.

  4. Decide which end of the caterpillar is the head, then rethread your needle. Starting at the bottom of the pom pom, pull the thread up through the middle and out towards either the right or left. Repeat, pulling the thread towards the opposite side. Now the caterpillar has antennae!

  5. Secure the wiggly eyes to the pom pom with hot glue. If desired, stitch a small smile onto the face of the caterpillar.

  6. How adorable! Pom Pom Caterpillars make a great non-candy Easter Egg filler and are simply fun to play with!
