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...

    Jazz up a boring scarf

    Whether you knitted the scarf, bought it at Goodwill or were gifted it during the holidays, a few quick stitches can make it a covetable item.

    Pop ‘em on a hair pin

    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 team psychs.

    Perk up your throw pillows

    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.

    Freshen up your key chain

    Spice up a boring metal ring with a spray of teeny pom-poms. We love this chain from Anthro, with its added charms and tassels.

    Deck the walls

    We couldn’t leave our own light bulb moment out, now could we? In our Dec/Jan ’13 issue, we showed ya how to make a pom-pom garland. We’re still digging the idea!

    Stash in a vase

    If your green thumb is still in hibernation mode, try gluing poms on twigs and popping them in a vase, old-school soda bottle or Mason jar.

    Sweeten up a stack of books

    Your Harry Potter collection has been piled high on your desk for ages…mostly ‘cause you’re too lazy to put them on the shelf. Make the stack look so-on-purpose with fluffy bookmarks.

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.
