It goes without saying that pom poms have a special place in our hearts. We love crafting our own from scratch with yarn, but of course, we also have an ever-growing stash of storebought pom poms. They come in so handy and we can almost always find a way to involve them in a craft. They are a craft closet staple! If you too have a bunch of pom poms around, take a look at these fun crafts below and put them to good use!

This DIY mobile is out of this world! Make your very own solar system using paper, crayons, sequins, and of course pom poms!
Who else gets eggcited about brunch? We used mini plastic frying pans (originally intended to hold appetizers) from the party store and gave them a quick coat of paint.

Pom pom phone home! These DIY UFOs are made of plastic margarita glasses and of course pom poms! They make a fun toy or make a bunch and turn them into mobile.
