You all know that I’m a tassel girl! My tassel roman shade is one of my favorite projects. But I must that I have started to cheat on tassels with pom poms! More specifically I decided to dress up a basket I picked up recently at a thrift store for $3! It only took a couple of minutes and then voila I had my own pom pom basket!
I’m pretty sure the basket I picked up was actually a planter. They had a ton of similar options, but if you don’t happen to stumble upon one this one available online is one of my favorites.
The best thing I did for making my little pom pom basket was picking up a pom pom maker. It made the job super easy!
It’s super easy to do!
The first time I made one I didn’t go all the way to the sides and when I started snipping the yarn everything fell apart.
Then you just need to cut right down the middle. At first I did it with scissors, but a razor was much faster and cleaner.
Then you need to take an extra piece of yarn and tie it in between the pom pom maker sides. Make sure you make it super tight. I double knotted them.
Then open up the maker and voila a pom pom!
It was so easy to take this:
I’m going to use it in my living room and store my magazines in it!
