Pom Poms-How To Revamp A Throw

One of the latest trends is pom poms.  They are showing up on all kinds of pillows and also on some really spendy throws. 

 I thought it was a fun idea and I had the perfect throw to revamp.

 This has a wonderful crocheted edge, so what a perfect place to add some pom poms.

I've seen all kinds of samples using the pom poms, some are really close together and some are spaced a few inches apart.  My throw has light and dark panels in a sort of stripe pattern, so I chose to add my pom poms on the lines of the stripes.  

How fun is this.  Gives this throw an updated look and so easy to do.

So how about you, are you into the pom pom trend or not?

  1. Love this idea Marty - your throw is super cute!

  2. Love how your throw turned out! I love pom poms because they remind me of polka dots, and I love polka dots. So fun! What a quick and easy way to revamp a throw.

  3. Oooh I love the pom poms, they really finish that peice off and add more texture to the chair.

  4. Definitely in! Just bought some yarn today for a new pom project. Love your throw, Marty. I think it totally changes the look!

  5. I've been seeing these throws with pom-poms for a while now. Had it in the back of my mind that I would do this as well. Just haven't found the right throw yet:) Yours looks fabulous!

  6. i love poms poms. i bought a little pom pom maker last year and some yarn...but no pom poms yet. super cute on the throw. did you make them yourself?

    1. Yes, I made them. I bought one of those pom pom makers also, however I think they are almost easier using a cardboard or your hand.

  7. Great idea ! Love your pom pom throw !

  8. Marty, you made a simple throw look even more beautiful with your fun pom poms! Very cute idea!

  9. These are so sweet. I am afraid that I haven't gotten into the pom pom thing. But, who knows???

  10. It turned out great Marty! I really like the trend, but have been kind of intimidated by trying to make my own! Impressed that you did.

  11. I remember my mom teaching us how to make those when we were kids. She used them on the hats she knitted for new babies.
    Your throw looks cute, very wintery look. It would be good for us here in NY with 3 ft of snow and more coming!

  12. Love pom poms! This is such a great idea and turned out perfectly Marty!

  13. LOVE this idea. I've been seeing pom poms everywhere. Now I have to look around my house for the perfect throw to update. Thanks for the inspiration!!

  14. Great idea and you did it beautifully. Love the "new" throw!!

  15. I did the same thing! Only mine was a bright green throw. It just adds a great pop of whimsey.

  16. So cute! I always use a piece of cardboard. Like you said, it's so easy and handy!

  17. Marty those are so stinkin adorable!!

  18. What a great idea! The throw is so fun with the addition of the pom poms! Christy

  19. Love this idea! Ever so subtle change, changes the appearance and feel of the throw. Great idea!

  20. Over the holiday I used the odds and ends of yarn I had to make pom poms for my Granddaughter. She had more fun playing with them. She found so many ways to entertain herself and her dolls. I didn't think to incorporate them into throws. Great idea.
