Pom poms are still a hot crafting trend and, really, is it any wonder? Cute, fun and oh-so-easy to make, they can be used in so many ways, from creating cute critters to adding a lovely finishing touch to accessories and gifts. If you haven’t made one of these fluffy balls since primary school, now’s your time to gather your yarn and get inspired.
There are numerous animal pom pom guides out there, from simple googly-eyed birds to gorgeous, realistic tiger faces. Why not have a go yourself, and make your favourite critter or recreate a beloved pet? The cuties can then be displayed on mantlepieces, shelves or coffee tables, or you could even turn them into adorable keyrings or brooches to wear with pride.
With Christmas on its way, it’s a great time to create a gorgeous pom pom wreath in bright, festive colours. Alternatively, an elegant wreath that uses soft colours like those in EasyKit Multicolour Pom Pom Decoration (485165) looks great any season. We’ve got a fun wreath project for you to try here, which uses deco mesh ribbon to cleverly ensure your pom poms don’t fall off.
Pom poms are great for adding a splash of colour and style to your interior without actually buying new furnishings, and can give tired items a whole new lease of life! Have a go at dressing up your living room pillows and lampshades with DIY pom pom trims – vibrant colours can add a nice amount of playfulness to otherwise ordinary objects, while neutral hues give an impression of elegance.
It may not be something you’ve ever thought about before, but once you’ve taken a look at the various pom pom rugs out there, you’ll soon realise that they’re just the thing you’ve been missing from the floor of your living room! In fact, our crafty Charlie Mumford has put together a fantastic tutorial to make a lovely rainbow pom pom rug – bright, bold and fuzzy, it’ll be an absolute delight under your feet.
Whether it’s for a party or just to add a fun whimsical element to your home, garlands make for wonderful decorations. Charlotte Newland has put together a great garland guide here, along with plenty of other pom pom tutorials, and you can use a range of different coloured yarn and different sized pom pom makers like those in Pom Pom Makers 4pcs (479856) to achieve a fun variety of garland bobbles.
