Do you have a little one that wants to be Cheerleader for Halloween? I have a fun and simple tutorial that shows you how to make your own pom-poms! I made these at no cost with items from around the house. They even sound like real pom-poms!

4-5 plastic shopping bags per pom pom
Hot Glue Gun
Paper Towel or toilet paper tube
Paper or washi tape
If using a paper towel tube, cut it in half. Cover it with either paper or washi tape.
