The Weekly Glint – Pom Poms

The humble pom pom is making somewhat of a come back in the world of homes and interiors.. hooray!

I’d almost forgotten all about the pom pom and how much I loved making them as a child. No fancy winders for us, we used to cut a couple of pieces of tough old cardboard box and spend hours threading off cuts of wool, to make multi-coloured spiders, pom pom pictures and finishing touches to my mum’s hand knitted dolls clothes creations.

Fast forward 30 years and I haven’t yet  made pom poms with my daughter (note to self…) and have re-discovered them as a potential home decor solution. I’m thinking trim for cushions and lampshades, embellishing a bag or jumper or two. Have a look at the best pom pom pictures and inspiration I’ve found on the internet.

What do you think about pom poms?
