Pom poms have been adding flair to homes all summer long. But just because fall is here, doesn’t mean they’re going anywhere. These adorable accessories are the pop of color your space needs, regardless of the season.

From baskets to coasters, we’ve rounded up 10 of the cutest pom pom projects. Happy crafting!
