Lots of people use craft pom-poms for various projects because they’re colorful, soft and versatile. If one of your favorite things is creating new stuff for a doll or dollhouse you’ll find pom-poms very useful. They’re very inexpensive and can be used to make many different things.
Make a winter scarf for any doll by using pom-poms. Use small ones for small dolls and larger pom-poms for bigger dolls. Use a dot of hot glue to stick to pom-poms together. Add another and another, end-to-end, until the scarf is as long as you want it to be. Make a different version by making two or three of the initial scarves. Glue them together, side-by-side, to make a shawl.
Make a matching purse for the scarf or shawl by gluing pom-poms together to form a small rectangle. Fold the rectangle in half and glue only the sides together. Glue on a tiny piece of cord or ribbon to make a strap.
Make a luxurious throw for a doll by using small pom-poms. Glue them, end-to-end, and make several of these rows, then glue the rows together. Drape the throw over the back of the sofa or lay it at the end of a bed.
Use really tiny pom-poms to make rugs for the dollhouse. Glue them to form large circles, squares, rectangles or oval shapes. These rugs are fluffy and beautiful. Place one in front of the tub, in front of the kitchen sink, under a dining table or make a runner to go down a hallway.
Make a fake lamp by gluing a small wooden dowel to a tiny wooden base. Cut the very tip off of a paper cone, go down a few inches, and cut across the cone once again. This will form the lampshade shape. Attach toothpicks across the smallest opening of the cone so you can set the cone on the wooden dowel. Glue tiny pom-poms all over the cone to make a gorgeous lampshade.
Use a small, round paper mache box to make a unique seating arrangement for the dollhouse. Glue tiny pom-poms all over it, on the top and around the sides, but not on the bottom. This round seat is plush, seats several dolls and looks really great if you make it from animal print pom-poms. Cover a small, square box in the same manner and make a vanity seat for the bathroom or dressing room.
Pom-poms are sold by the bag and are available in bags of same colors and sizes or assorted colors and sizes. With them being so very cheap your dolls can have many new clothing and accessory pieces for two or three bucks!
