I think 2014 is gearing up to be the year of the pom pom. Eff this “radiant orchid” crap; pom poms rule. And not just because I have a have a crafty hard on for them and their 70’s nostalgia, or because they are inexpensive and kid-friendly, or because they come in awesome colors FROM THE DOLLAR TREE, or because I have a drawer in my home literally labeled “pom poms and awesome”…but because nobody can dislike a pom pom.
Okay. Now I typed that about nobody can dislike a pom pom and someone will have to be contrary and say pom poms suck, and that’s fine. Be that way. In the wise words of Kyle Richards, elder stateswoman of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, there will always be those who “look for tits on an ant” only this time we are not talking about tits we are talking about pom poms, and we are not talking about ants we are talking about everything. And I mean everything. You can put pom poms on anything.
Guys, it’s a rug. Can you even imagine walking out of the shower and stepping into this candy colored pile of cheerfulness? No. You can’t. That’s why we have to hurry up and make one.
Did you know you can glue pom poms to balloons? Me neither. I’m slightly suspicious of the method as I’m terrified of the sound of popping balloons, but these are next to amazing so I might just have to suck it up.
These. I’m not sure what these are for but I want 100 of them. And if I never use them in the whole of my life I want them tied to my coffin. They are coming with me into the afterlife.
If you are not the DIY type, this might be a good way to get your pom pom on. I would wear this with my bathrobe to the grocery store.
You think I’m kidding.
Or if you are the DIY type, this necklace is very doable with some ball fringe.
And speaking of DIYing with ball fringe, does anyone have a cheap source for the stuff? I’m thinking it would be easy to make this curtain panel, but given the price per yard at my fabric store, I suspect I would save money just buying straight from Anthropologie. And where is the fun in that?
Can you even believe these fruity bits are made of yarn? The directions on that strawberry look surprisingly doable, too.
And bears. So cute. Not as cute as a green-eyed marmalade cat pom pom, but I know a cute yarn koala when I see one. The panda ain’t hard to look at either.
The quest continues…
