Put a pom pom on it! These days, it seems that the infamous, “put a bird on it” has become the pom and the tassel. With so many people crafting, the pom pom and tassle are easy ways to adorn just about everything. They add instant charm and whimsy, especially if you work with the right colors and scale. There are even pom pom makers out there to help you achieve the perfect pom pom. When I was reupholstering my sofa last year, I found some vintage mustard pom poms on Etsy and sewed them onto my throw pillows. They totally made the sofa (you can’t see it well, but this is the only picture I have of it).
Here are a few projects to add to your home.
Giant pom pom blanket and fringe garland
This otherwise plain room above is instantly a hit with oversized pom poms lining the blanket.Confetti System, a company out of NYC has made a living out of making beautiful fringe tassels in current colors.
Oversized pom pom pillow
This DIY shows how to make the large pom poms. Use the instructions on the website to make throw pillows. And use the same technique for the blanket above.
Pom pom and tassle key chains
Design*sponge has a great tutorial on how to make smaller size poms and tassels to add to your keychain. I don’t know about you, but I could definitely use that to help me not lose my keys all the time.
Proud Mary is a great company that has a knack for adding tassels and pom poms in the right colors to create great accessories for your home. If you’re not the DIY type, I’d highly recommend these ones.
Pom pom curtains and tassel garlands
I just LOVE this pom pom curtain. It’s created so that it doesn’t look too cutesy, which is always a risk with poms. The mini tassel fringe garland on the right comes with easy to understand instructions on StudioDIY.
