Okay, we need to talk about something… it’s POM POMS. Casual mini-loofahs everywhere, for every occasion, and I can’t get enough of it. I’m on an all pom pom diet. When I die, bury me in pom poms. I actually had a dream about pom poms last night. I know what you’re thinking – “Betsy, calm down. Pom poms are for clowns and cheerleaders.” Yes and no, but mostly no. According to Oscar de la Renta, Prada, and Christian Siriano, pom poms are for the runway BUT here I am now, making pom poms for you, the everyday cool girl (#coolgirl).
While pom poms look good on and with everything (pom pom stilettos, pom pom ceiling fan, pom pom dog collar), today we’re going to DIY a pom pom SWEATER that is equal parts Fun-Gal-Who-Probably-Eats-Jelly-Beans-Daily and Edgy-Gal-Who-Wears-Platform-Sandals.
Alright, here we go. This is what you’ll need:
- Any kind of color yarn. You can do all one color, rainbow, christmas colors, you name it. (ps Walmart has a large selection of yarn??? Anyone else surprised???? Friendly grannies also looking for yarn helped me pick my colors)
- A sweater! Maybe your fave sweater that you stained with guac that one time 😦 (hint: that is me)
- A fork
- Embroidery thread or other strong, thin string
- A needle
Wow! That’s all! So fun and easy!
Now that you’ve got a fresh, guac-stain-free sweater, continue to add pom poms in all other areas of your life.
