Pom-poms are one of those decorative things that you probably don’t really think about it unless you see them on something you love. But honestly, maybe we should be seeking them out a little more. Pom-poms are cute to look at, and they also make anything they’re on automatically look more fun and vibrant, making them the perfect accent to add to any old item that needs a bit of a makeover. Because, sure, you can find pompom accessories, home decor, jewelry, and even clothing all over the place, but a little DIY action is a lot more interesting and unique. If this sounds interesting, you’re in luck, because Pinterest is overflowing with pom-pom crafts that you’re definitely going to want to try.
Pom-poms are actually much easier to create than it seems, and so once you have the basics down, the possibilities are kind of endless. They look good on almost anything! Brightly colored pompoms, like pinks and yellows, stand out with a bold look that screams “summer,” while pom-poms in neutral shades like white or black suddenly seem a little bit more elegant and subdued. There’s something here for everyone, though, whether you want a cute pompom accessory to liven up your wardrobe or something nice to use in your bedroom. Here are a few pom-pom crafts you need to make ASAP:
