Once confined to crafting workshops at summer camp, pom-poms are making a chic comeback in the Japanese and Scandinavian craft scenes. They’re soft, they’re colorful, they're fun to craft, and they add a touch of whimsy to everything they meet. Sarah Goldschadt and Lexi Walters Wright create magic with Pom-Poms! (Quirk Books, $14.95) offers 25 delightfully fluffy projects that offer a fresh take on these timeless, spunky little poufs.
This photo-filled book shows readers how to create all kinds of colorful poms—using cardboard, a pom-pom maker, or even a fork!—and then guides them through a range of crafts, from fashion accessories and home décor to party supplies and decorations. Projects include single-pom paper flowers, a pom-pom rug, tinseled cake toppers, and poufy scarves. The easy-to-follow instructions explain how to make poms using not just yarn and string, but a host of unexpected materials: coffee filters, cupcake wrappers, cellophane, grocery bags, and more. Even your old T-shirts can be upcycled into pom-poms.
Pom-Poms! is the go-to resource for crafters, DIY fashionistas, party planners, parents and kids and anyone who finds delight in these cool, colorful, and insanely cute balls of fluff . The book is available for excerpt, feature, or mention.
Check out for more pom-pom fun!
