Thank goodness pom poms and tassels seem to be here to stay.  In addition to being fun accents on handbags and clothing, I recently noticed them showing up on home accessories too.  My friend Melissa created pom poms with embroidery floss to add to some of her baskets, and she suggested yarn would work well too.  Pinterest had plenty of tutorials, but I liked this one from Camille Styles the best.  Camille suggests wrapping the yarn a certain number of times, but I just wrapped until it looked about like the picture.  Make sure the center yarn is tied as tightly as possible (step 4), and otherwise the pictures sum it up great!  I made 5 pom poms, then easily tied them through the openings of my palm tree basket.  I can't wait to top some presents with these cute accents, or use them as trim for the corner of accent pillows or throws.
