Pom pom cats are an easy craft for children to complete to make as a gift for a cat lover. The simple craft can easily be attached to a greeting card or the ribbon on a gift as an additional treat. Completing a pom cat only takes a few hours (with a day for drying), and anyone with motor skills can do it. Small children may need assistance. All supplies for this project are found at craft or department stores.
Choose a large pom as the base of your cat. Glue a matching (or mismatched, depending on your preference) medium-sized pom to the top of the large one.
Cut a pipe cleaner into three equal pieces. Fold two pieces in half to look like ears and glue them to the top of the medium-sized pom. Glue the third piece to the back of the large pom. Bend if desired for a curly tail.
Glue two small pom poms to the front of the medium-sized pom to create the snout. Above the snout, glue the smallest pom for a nose.
Glue two googly eyes above the snout. Let the cat dry for one day before moving to assure all pieces are securely attached.
