Lately I’ve been seeing huge pom-poms dangling from purses, backpacks and sets of keys. My pom-pom experience is limited to a few boring, tiny pom-poms I made for some toques. My loss though – it turns out there are a bunch of fun pom-pom designs out there.
For example: even if you don’t play Neko Atsume, you have to admit that these cat pom-poms are pretty cute.
Mr Printables shows off how to make not one but five different animal pom-poms in this tutorial.
And pom-poms don’t have to be made with yarn. Cotton + Curls has a tutorial on faux fur pom-poms to really take your DIY up a notch.
But if you’re itching for something completely different: make an eyeball pom-pom. Hang it off your backpack so no one steals your stuff (or goes near you).
I’ll admit that I’m happy to be free of plain old pom-poms. And even if I can’t find old pom-pom maker, I’ll take comfort in knowing that I can use some toilet paper rolls instead.
