We love pom poms in my house! Almost any occasion is a reason to celebrate, and you don’t need a lot of fancy decorations on hand to make things festive. We love colorful pom poms, but wanted to try out an un-dyed look for this project…and love the way they came out! Our giant natural tissue paper pom poms make great party decorations in no time at all, and give a homespun feel to any gathering.
