Pom poms are so fluffy and cute and super popular right now! If you are like me, you look at cute fluffy things and wonder what you can do with them to incorporate more cute fluffiness into you life. Since I have two young granddaughters at my house right now, it has been the perfect time to do some pom pom crafting with them, especially since we are getting so close to Valentine's Day.
To begin with, I taught them the fork method of making our own pom poms! They were so excited and it is an easy craft for them to do. They did need help tying them tightly enough, but other than that, they were really good at it. If you haven't seen the fork method yourself, here is a quick video to teach you how!
I found a heart shaped wreath form by accident at Dollar Tree. (They also have round ones.) I thought it would be perfect for a wreath for Valentine's Day, so I picked it up. You can order them on line, so if you have a group crafting event coming, these would be great! At first I thought about a floral wreath, but then I saw yarn and thought pom poms and the pom pom wreath idea was born.
The girls and I started making pink, white and red pom poms. The wreath really takes a lot of pom poms, but they go quickly and they are a lot of fun to do. You can watch TV as you work. I used a large serving fork to make large pom poms, the girls used regular dinner forks for smaller pom poms to act as filler.
My granddaughters and I had so much fun that we couldn't stop there! We picked up some inexpensive t-shirts for them and decided we could do something cute with pom poms on them.
I've also seen ideas with sweaters using pom poms as polka dots, or in heart shapes. Here is a pom pom choker for just $4 right now at Lulus! The ideas are endless! If you don't have time to make anything with them, just keep one in your pocket as a warm fuzzy whenever you feel it in there! These cute fuzzy things can't help but cheer you! :)
