This DIY pom pom garland is so easy to make you will want to do one for every occasion! These would look great for a summer luau, Halloween party, or even at Christmas or New Year's! Just change the colors to match any celebration. Or leave them white for a wahite party or wedding. I used tie dye to apply color to my coffee filter garland but you can use spray ink if you like. Tie Dye gives a really great vibrant color to the coffee filters while spray ink would give a totally different effect. Our Girl Scout troop made these for a camping trip they went on over the summer but they're also great for a party.

DIY Coffee Filter Garland for LUAU by Jennifer Priest Collage

I didn't get any photos of the garland displayed at the campground – they went beach camping but I hear the luau was awesome! Here's what you'll need to make a coffee filter garland of your own:


  • Standard Old School Coffee Filters
  • Stapler
  • Heavy Twine
  • Hot Glue
  • Tie Dye or Spray Ink (optional)
DIY Coffee Filter Pom Pom Garland by Jennifer Priest - Finished Poms 2

I made a slideshow of how to make these. They're incredibly simple. Each pom is made of 20 coffee filters. Fold each filter into quarters. Stack 10 of the quarters on top of one another and staple the corner. Fluff by gently unfolding the coffee filters. Repeat for a second pom half. Hot glue the poms together, sandwiching the twine in the middle.
