I’m sure you all have heard of these pom poms. They’re fantastic, I plan on making a crap-ton. HOWEVER, what do you do with them after the wedding? Have any of you had success with repurposing (read:reselling) them, or will I be donating or recycling these works of art? I must be missing some giant thread where people have perfectly thought out solutions to all of these pom poms that must be building up in the universe. Can someone direct me to that? Or suggest what I can do. I don’t plan on decorating my house with any of this stuff. Maybe I’d keep one or two and make another useful craft, but that’s probably it.

I’m doing pompoms and lanterns and plan on keeping them as a room decoration. I think reselling is smart so long as they are still in good condition. If not that, I’d just recycle them.

Wakonyo21: I would just give them to a local nursing home. They are chronically short of funds to decorate for holidays and would probably appreciate the donation.
Give them a call.

Wakonyo21: I’d donate. I wouldn’t want paper poms or lanterns that have already been opened because transport / space concerns.

I’m going to hang them in the spare bedroom for now, but when I have a baby I plan on hanging them from the ceiling, like this.

I wanted to keep mine, but they became so damaged after transporting them from the venue to my house that I had to throw them out. It was a shame – they were beautiful. Donating them is a great idea, if you don’t want to use them for home decor.
