The very evening we returned home from our trip I was busy making pom poms. It only takes a few minutes per pom, you can see my simple tutorial here.
At first I thought I'd hot glue the poms on, but them decided to tie them on in case I ever wanted to switch out the colors. I left the piece of yarn that ties off the middle of the pom long, then carefully threaded it through the weave of the basket from the front.
Then I tied it off inside the basket and trimmed the ends. Repeat for the number of poms that you want and you're all finished!
So for the $10 basket price and yarn I already had, I have a happy new basket.
I've been wanting to do this project for a long time, and was just waiting to stumble across the right basket to use. In the mean time, my friend Jen did her own version... check it out here!
