5 Secrets to More Color at Home

Five Crazy Things to do with Yarn Poms


Crazy! I just love that I get to use words like that in my post titles. Today’s five crazy things involve.. yarn poms! I’ve seen so many cool yarn pom projects popping up lately (like these flower ones!? HELLO AWESOME!) and guess what? I’ve never actually made a yarn pom. The Horror. But I can tell ya right now, my apartment is soon to be covered in them after checking out these DIYs. Watch out, Jeff.

1. Yarn Pom Trash Can Makeover: If you’re having a party, there’s going to be trash. And if there’s trash, the trash can should probably be schnazy looking. Add some yarn poms and you have solved that problem right away!

2. Yarn Pom Banner: I just love this banner idea! What a great photo prop it would make, or a perfect photo backdrop OR a fun accent over a doorway. OH the possibilities!

3. Yarn Pom Pendant: Cover a paper lantern in poms and it’s a piece of fringey goodness. Enough said.

4. Yarn Pom Backdrop: This is actually an art installation, but how glorious would it be as a backdrop for a photobooth!? So very colorful, and I love the mix of sizes!

5. Yarn Pom Party Headband: While you’re at it, you should probably wear some on your head too. A plethora of them, in headband form to be exact!

Have you guys  made yarn poms before? What’s your preferred method? Cardboard? Pom pom makers? No fancy tools at all? I need to get ON this!

Have something you’d like to see in the “Five Things” series?

    How cute and fun are those. Okay, I’m going to show my age here, but I remember making those in red, white and blue and putting them on my roller skates. Thank you for bringing back good memories and inspiration for future ones.

      I love that, Jamie! I’ve actually had a few other people tell me the same thing after seeing this post! I see a roller skate (or ice skate!) DIY in my future! =)


  • Brittni

    Yes! Great roundup Kelly. I love that first one from Brittany. Have never seen a trash can that I thought was cute…until I saw that DIY 🙂

  • Stephanie

    I LOVE the yarn pom backdrop! It would make a great door curtain in my flat… definitely all over that!
