Ridiculously adorable things to do with pom-poms (and how to make them)
Pom-poms have this addictive quality to us. They’re cute, they’re colorful, they’re fuzzy. They’re sort of like inanimate pets you can cuddle as you make piles and piles of them. And they like adorable, no matter what you do with them. That’s a win-win (win-win-win?) in our book. Here are our favorite pinspired pom-pom crafts, and, of course, a step-by-step video to show you how to make them. Bring on a rainy day crafting sesh, Mother Nature!
Cute things to do with your piles of pom-poms...
And how to make them…
Note: There are probably a billion ways to make pom-poms, from the Clover Pom-Pom Maker (available at craft stores) to forks to cardboard circles. This way is the easiest, and all it requires is a skein of yarn and your hands. And scissors. Don’t forget the scissors.
OK, so this image shows a chiffon pom-pom instead of a yarn one,
but you could totally do it with the yarn for a cutesy vibe. Extra
adorbs? Pair up your school's colors and wear 'em for spirit days and
Give your bedroom a quick refresh by sewing a gaggle of pom-poms to
an accent pillow. Another cute take? Try sewing or gluing poms to the
fabric to create a squashy shape, like a heart, star or a letter.
