Raw, raw, raw, siss boom bah, pom poms gonna win, so ha, ha, ha! That’s right, friends; this week we’re shaking our pom poms in honor of the incredibly cheerful pom-pom trend!
If you’ve already been to the pom party, you know these puffy pieces come in a variety of forms. There’s the tissue pom. And since this is our monthly tutorial trend post, you’ll find an awesome tutorial for creating your own tissue explosions here.
There’s the cotton-ball craft pom. These cuties come in so many happy shapes and sizes, and can be used for so many darling projects. I mean, just get a look at these sweet puffs from CHICBean.
There’s even t-shirt poms. Yes, that’s right. The cute and talented Linda at Craftaholics Anonymous has a great tutorial for creating these chipper cuties here.
But today we’re going to put our focus on yarn poms. These fuzzy, colorful, fluffy, pom poms that make anything and everything brighter. Like a little ball of springtime, which is much needed right now, wouldn’t you agree?
It’s a Pom Palace: Poms in the home.
Target knows trends, so it comes as no surprise to me that a quick pom search on their website turns up plenty of pom options. Poptions? ;) This pillow quickly caught my eye. Looks like a terrific place to rest my head.
Isn’t this stunning? It started out its life as a regular ol’ blanket, and now it’s a pom paradise. And all it takes is a little DIY action. Vintage Revivals has the low down how to warm up with this craft.

Say it with me: lamp-om-pom. Has a nice ring to it, don’t ya think? As does this little lovely from Layla Grayce.
Pretty in Poms: Fashionable pom pieces.
Bundle of Pom
Does it get any cuter than this? I mean, really, does it get ANY cuter? Poms and babies seem to go hand in hand. At least with this sweet hat from Layla Grayce.
Spending money would be far more fun with a pom purse. Thanks, Piperlime, for enabling my spending prowess.
Pom Pom Snow Show
These poms were made for walkin’. And that’s just what they’ll do, thanks to Gymboree. Well, if you can fit into a girls’ size 9-4.
It’s time to get your pom on, and Anthropologie makes that possible with this, the Truffled Poms Necklace.
I know you wouldn’t put a pushpin on, but I couldn’t resist also sharing these darling numbers, also from Anthropologie. Pom pins—love!
My own pom party!
I got in on the pom party, thanks to this little doodad from Clover. It’s the Pom Pom Maker, and it comes in several sizes and styles.
Here’s a video from Clover, which will show you just how easy it is to create these cuties.
I’ve had so much fun with this tool. Here’s one project I dressed up with a few small poms. It’s my Book of Love, made from a paper mache book. I’m keeping the cards we receive this year in it (birthdays, Valentine’s Day, anniversary, etc.) so I have them cataloged by year and so I can keep them out and enjoy them time and time again as the years progress. (I plan on keeping a full Book of Love library from this point on.
I also made this coffee-filter arrow and thought a couple of yarn poms were just the ticket to complete the look. Contained inside the filter is candy, and then I simply stitched the filter shut using my sewing machine. The length of the arrow is actually a paper straw.
Finally, I’m sharing some spring pom fun on a local television show this week. I’ll post a link to that show and share my projects on my blog this Thursday. I hope you’ll come by and say hi. Until then, I’d love to know how you’ve used poms. Or, if you haven’t yet, if you will and what ideas you have.
You know what that means: it’s a Pinterest pom party. Check out my Pom Pom Power board for a bunch of pom-inspired projects, including layouts, cards, home decor, gift wrap, and more.
Until next week, enjoy the pom-tastic creative journey of yours, friends!
Cheers! (rah rah)
P.S. A great BIG thank you to all who responded with info about your self last week. I loved checking out your interests, styles, and Pinterest accounts. I’m afraid I was unable to see the ones who left user names instead of direct links, however. Not sure why that is (likely user error on my part), but I did want you to know I tried.
