Pom-poms aren’t just kids’ stuff.
The little poufs are a staple of children’s crafts, but they can add charm to grown-up projects, too. Sarah Goldschadt and Lexi Walters Wright show how in their book Pom-Poms! 25 Awesomely Fluffy Projects.
Imagine pom-poms dangling from a curtain’s edge or dressing up a pair of flats. Pom-poms can be used for jewelry, party decorations, home decor and whimsical whatnots — and, of course, they’re the crowning touch for knitted winter caps.
Goldschadt and Wright’s pom-poms go beyond the usual yarn variety. They show how to make the embellishments from paper, fabric and even rubber bands.
Pom-Poms! is published by Quirk Books and sells for $14.95 in softcover.
