Today we're talking pom poms — I'm showing you 4 ways to make the perfect pom pom, dishing on my secret tip for getting your poms extra fluffy, and showing you how to turn your poms into an adorable pom pom bouquet!
Pom Poms might just be one of the most perfect home decor accent pieces.
From curtain tie backs to rugs to adding a little pizzaz to throw pillows & blankets — poms add texture and color to keep it interesting.
Pom poms are actually super easy to make and you can customize the color, shape, and texture to fit right in with your space's vibe.

HOW TO MAKE A POM POM BOUQUET
To make the bouquet, start by making 8-12 pom poms in a variety of sizes and colors. Be sure to watch the video to learn my trick for getting super fluffy pom poms.
Next, insert a dowel rod into the middle of each pom pom and tie the "tail" strings around the dowel at the base of the pom pom to secure.
Arrange your pom pom 'flowers' in your vase by alternating sizes and colors for a balanced look.
You can use a piece of floral arrangement foam or feed each of your sticks through an empty toilet paper tube to keep them in place.
Arrange until you love the way it looks. Best of all you don't have to be a responsible plant parent to keep this arrangement alive!

This is such a cute idea & I can’t believe how easy it is! Also LOVE how you put them in the vase, so adorable!
I looove everything about this. Especially the video you made. It’s my goal to make creative video tutorials. But I just don’t know where to start! Love your vibe and your creations. Plus I didn’t even think about using a cat brush to make them fluffier. I’m so doing that. Thanks for your inspiration. Big hug! P.S. I’m subscribing! ?
Thanks for all the sweet words Jenna!! Getting started is the hardest part – but you just have to dive in and learn as you go. You’ll find your voice and refine your content. I can’t wait to see what you create!
I’ve seen homemade pom poms before but I never would have thought of using them as faux floral arrangement! I love this idea!
So simple but so great to look at. Simple way to spruce up a dark room
