If you were stranded on a desert island and you could bring along one thing….
….what would it be?
I’m not sure exactly what I would take because I’d have to know how cute the island was first, but I can guarantee you this.
It would have pom poms.
I’m the original president of the pom pom fan club.
I’ve loved pom poms from the first pom pom hair tie in high school and I’ve never looked back. I’ve added them to curtains and sweater vests and pillows and throws and once upon a time in a land far away I glued them in strings to my wall for a fun accent.
So to celebrate pom poms everywhere….
….here are five easy pom pom projects.
Just in case a desert island comes calling. 🙂
Here’s a beaded pom pom garland.
I’ve made more versions of this than you can count. I’ve strung the beads and added the pom poms at the end and painted the beads gold and strung the beads in different sizes.
It all works.
Start with the basics and then go rogue with your beads and pom poms.
Oh the beauty of a pom pom pillow.
Especially when it’s made from drop cloth.
I made this entire pillow (pom poms and all) for under $5.
The best part of this pom pom project?
It’s so easy to make and it’s a perfect project for cool spring nights.
Hello tiny pom pom trim.
You are the cutest.
Especially when you’re added to this simple pillow pattern made from layers of fabric.
DIY found here (along with some other fun pillow projects, too).
And one more project for the holiday road.
Pom pom stockings.
I know it’s spring. I know summer hasn’t even shown up yet. But the stockings were too cute not to include and you can always pin them for later.
Here’s a pom pom blessing for the road.
May your morning be full of sunshine.
May your heart be full of joy.
May your house be cheery and bright.
And may your day be as amazing as you are.
(total aside: It’s apparent that pom poms are full of wisdom. Who knew?) 🙂
