Do you have pretty pom poms in your stash but aren’t sure what to do with them? Here are 20 pom pom crafts that will inspire you!
I’m a huge sucker for pom poms. In fact, I have two big bags of them in my craft stash, and I also have a bunch of pom pom trim. I don’t know what it is about them – I just love the colorful fuzziness!
