Scrapbuster: Pom Pom Pandemonium


Whether you call them Pom Poms, Pom-Pon, Pompon or Pompom, there is no denying the versatility of this little ball of fluff!  Around here the consensus is that we should call them Pom Poms.  A Pom Pom is largely defined as a loose, fluffy, decorative ball or tuft of fibrous material. They may come in many colors, sizes, and varieties.  This variety comes from the materials you choose to make them with; be it wool, cotton, paper, or even plastic.  Of course, our favorite is to make them with yarn.  Once you learn how to make a yarn pom pom [3], you’ll be completely addicted.  Making DIY yarn pom poms [4]is a great use of those small balls of yarn you have left over from your colorful crochet afghan patterns [5], so don’t throw out those scraps!
