20 Fuzzy & Fun Pom Pom Crafts You’ll Have to Try!

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!

Pom Pom CraftsI’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!

The only problem is that besides making a pom-pom monster, I haven’t had any brilliant ideas of what to do with them. And what do you do with a pom-pom monster? Anyhoo, this collection of 20 pom pom crafts gives me some great inspiration for how to use what I currently have in my stash – and tempts me to buy more.

I’m going to force myself to make one of these projects first before I go hog wild and buy more pom poms. Which one is your favorite? Scroll down to see them!
