How To Draw A Cheer Pom Pom

Summer is here and it’s the perfect time to break out the pom poms and create some awesome cheerleading pieces. Drawing a cheer pom pom is not as difficult as it may seem and with our simple steps, you’ll have your pom pom done in no time. So get your materials ready and let’s get drawing!

Step One: Understand What You’re Drawing

Before you can begin drawing your pom pom, it’s important to understand what it is. A cheer pom pom generally has a round head, pointed tip, and has long tails. Knowing this information will help you visualize what you’re drawing.

Step Two: Start With The Outline

Now that you have an understanding of what your cheer pom pom should look like, it’s time to get started. Begin with a basic round shape with tapered points at the top. You can make your shape perfect with a ruler and then draw the outline with a pencil.

Step Three: Introduce Color

Once you’ve got your outline down, it’s time to introduce some color. Choose colors that will work well together and will incorporate nice details. Some colors may need a couple of coats to really pop so make sure you get the color you desire.

Step Four: Draw The Tails

Now that your cheer pom pom has color, it’s time to draw the tails. Draw two long, flat rectangles coming out of the bottom of the round circle. Make sure they’re evenly spaced, with a slight curve so they look realistic.

Step Five: Final Touches

Once your cheer pom pom is complete, all that’s left to do is add the final touches. You can do this by adding small details to the outline and the tails, such as light shading or highlights and lowlights.


Drawing a cheer pom pom shouldn’t be intimidating or difficult. With the help of this step-by-step guide, you can easily create a pom pom that will be a great addition to any cheerleading set. All you need is the right materials, a bit of patience and a steady hand!
