For our wedding recession, Tad and I wanted something fun and unique. We thought about having our guests toss rose petals, feathers, or blow bubbles at us but then we decided on pom-poms. I saved some of them from the wedding and Tad and I had a lot of fun with them on our anniversary photo shoot!
Not only did they make for cute photos, but these were super simple and inexpensive to make. We had help from our friends and family and made them in all different sizes. I even sprinkled them with sparkly powder that smelled of marshmallows! Below is an actual picture from our wedding...seeing all these little pom-poms liter our aisle just made me smile :)
To make your own pom-poms you will need scissors and yarn. Yup, that's it. Here's the tutorial I used from CraftStylish. Just remember, the shorter you trim your yarn ball, the rounder and fuzzier it becomes. I think these would be cute to make in the holiday colors and used as decor. Have fun making your own pom-poms!
