Pom pom crafts are my new thing. I’m pretty new to the whole thing, as my kids and I had our Great Pom Pom Experience only last week, but it was an eye-opener, and now those eyes are wide to the wonderful possibilities of pom pom crafts!

Seriously, how could you not love making pom poms? You can make them out of organic cotton or wool or so many upcycled materials, you can make them anywhere from teensy-tiny to freaking HUGE, and what you can do with them is basically endless.

I have been pom pom researching and pom pom crafting my pom pom butt off in the last several days, and here are my favorite pom pom possibilities so far.

I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.
