Rainbow Pom Crafts

If knitting or crochet is not what you want to get into – why not create easy poms and make some rainbow home decor.

All you have to do is make a range of poms in rainbow colours and arrange in a jar with some fairy lights.

Then if you want to make the wall hanging, make poms in various sizes and colours, thread them onto the string and hang from a piece of wood.
