WIRE BASKET UPDATE WITH POM POMS

January 8, 2018

I am so happy to be sharing my first DIY of the year! Since I made this pencil cup over with pom poms, I've been wanting to add them to this basket too because, why not? 

 

  

Poms and good-looking storage are my two favourite things! This inexpensive wire basket has been a real useful holder for all my jute, but it's simple and I wanted to add a little colour to it.

 

TOOLS & MATERIALS:

 

  • Yarn in variety of colours (I used a bunch of Loops & Threads from Michaels)

  • 5.5 cm & 7.0 cm pom pom makers

  • Any round wire basket (mine is approx. 9" tall)

 

DIRECTIONS:

 

 

Make the poms according to the directions on the package.  I made 7 in total: three large

and four small.

 

 

 

 

 

As you make them, make sure to leave two long ends.  Then, tie and double knot the pom poms to the basket.  I didn't have a pattern in mind when I started.  Instead I kind of just went with the flow.   

 

 

  

 

 

Total time: about 1 hour to make 7 pom poms, and 5 minutes to secure them to the basket.
