Create a soft, fluffy DIY pom-pom footstool
Most homes have footstools, especially if there are children around. For those homes whose footstools have passed their prime and are looking a little worse for wear, there is a way to freshen them up. Fortunately, with this DIY fix, they can be brought back to life with a little color.
What’s needed is yarn in any color, some sharp scissors, a pom-pom maker, a basic footstool, and some hot glue. For a footstool that is the size of about 12″ x 10″, about 40 pom-poms will be used per stool. Remember that pom-poms can be purchased if there’s no time to make them.
