Who doesn't get a kick out of pom poms? I wore them on my ice skates when I was a kid, one red and one red & white, mixed. Something about pom poms makes me happy, so seeing the numerous pom pom projects on Pinterest and around the blog world of late motivated me to give a couple a try. This is the perfect craft for a gal like me who has DIY-ADD because I can get 'em done in a sitting or two.
I gave them out over the holidays when I felt the need to share a little happy cheer.

I saw these and found this tutorial on Dill Pickle Design,
and gave it my own twist by using sticks for stems and using them for a "Winter bouquet" in my dining room.
I even tied them on my lanterns.
I think tonight while I am whiling away the night watching The Bachelor, I will make some more pom poms.
I can use some on pillows like Cassie did...
Primitive and Proper
Or make key chains out of them using this tutorial .
a pair and a spare
I could even even add a few to a scarf, like this lovely from Anthro...
(my version would be much less $$$!)
The best part? I have lots of yarn around the house from my failed attempts to revisit my knitting skills. Now that's what I call a cheap DIY!
Oh and did I tell you that I was partying over at Jennifer Rizzo's for her Pom Pom Party?
She made heart shaped pom poms....
