If you need a whole pile of pompoms, try this tutorial for making pompoms in bulk, and this one is good for tiny pompoms.

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.
