Looking for an injection of fun in your décor or some celebration decorations, be it Easter, birthday, Christmas or just seasonal? Pompoms are just about the easiest and quickest way I know to make fun art. But fun doesn’t have to mean childish and garish (unless you want it to!). Plus you can use the cheapest yarn available.
I’m keen to get involved in the Red Nose Day Crafternoon and I thought pompoms would be perfect for this. So I’ve trawled the internet for inspiration and come up with these beauties! You’re welcome!

For making, I recommend these pompom makers (via Amazon) and was able to make four small ones in about 15 minutes:
If you need a whole pile of pompoms, try this tutorial for making pompoms in bulk, and this one is good for tiny pompoms.
1. Brighten up a chest of drawers or wardrobe with these adornments. Easy to tie-in with your room’s colour scheme.
2. A rug: It’s always nice to put your feet on something soft when you haul yourself out of bed in the morning.
3. Spring wreath: just change the colours for autumn, Christmas… what a pretty welcome for your visitors.
4. For those times of year when you can’t easily get fresh flowers, how about these pom pom branches in a lovely vase or jug.
5. This cloud would be lovely in a child’s room or nursery.
6. I couldn’t overlook this kitsch wreath. It’s so cheerful! You could incorporate some treasured trinkets. Great yarn stash-buster too (a key consideration for me!)
7. I can’t decide whether this is a wreath or just lovely wall art. It’s very stylish in any case!
8. This is a great alternative to bunting (and believe me, I know how long it takes to make good bunting!) and I’ve also seen this done on fairy light strings and coiled into a mason jar.
9. This is one the kids could make as a long-lasting bunch of flowers for Mother’s Day. Maybe a house-warming or hostess gift? Pretty.
10. Wall hanging: Another great stash buster and a good way to brighten up a larger wall area.
11. Your name in pompoms: a really fun idea!
For more ideas, this book by Christine Leech (via Amazon) looks amazing!
