I've loved pom-poms the first moment I watched my sister Joyce turn them into animals using her Pom-Pom Pets Kit when I was 7 years old. Turning fluffy balls of yarn into owls and rabbits and such . . . well, it was magical. Which brings me to the projects in this roundup. Not as complicated as turning a couple of pom-poms into a ladybug (Joyce did that too), these tutorials and inspiration are no less delightful.
We're going to start out with a serious bang. Namely, Emily's absolutely gorgeous blue and white wreath.
Next is Mari's pom-pom chandelier. (Could make a cute mobile too!)
Something a bit more understated but still super-cute are Meredith's pom-pom pushpin and magnets. Essential for the knitter in your life.
Okay, I know we've seen this idea before, but a reminder around the holidays might be in order: pom-pom garland!
Another been-there-done-that for some, but these pom-pom posies are just the cutest. (The fabulous vintage bottles don't hurt either!)
A 'beaded' pom-pom curtain? Why not? Plus, it's something for the kitties to play with. (Not.)
These place card holders are actually an already-made item, but they're easily DIYable. A set of 4 will set you back $8 on Luulla.
You could run with the last idea and turn these pop-pom pumpkins into cute place card holders for the holidays.
Great for teachers and any other bookworm in your life are these quick, easy, and delightful pom-pom book markers.
If making a bunch of pom-poms isn't your thing, you might want to opt for pom-pom yarn. Yup, there's yarn out there with integrated pom-poms. Creative Jewish Mom used it three different ways. One was wrapping it around glasses to make impromptu votive candle holders, shown below. She also used it to tart-up her dining room chandelier and to wrap her silverware settings.
