Make Your Own Pom Poms!

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!

I used to make these pom poms all the time. They were part of a kit that I got as a kid. I think the end result was supposed to be some sort of frog but I got so intrigued by making the pom poms that the frog never happened. I used to have a green and white one that I hung in my car's rear view, but I snipped it off to give to my cat to play with. We ended up throwing it away because it turns out my cat had a tendency to swallow the loose yarn. Beautiful pic BTW.

WOW! They look spectacular in these photos-- better than jumping photos, even! AND better than confetti! Great idea, thanks for sharing!

Happy Monday!
