Pom-pom Garland

Pompom garland 

Yeah, I have my new camera (when I will see my lap top, who knows). Let the Christmas sharing begin  ;-) So my inspiration this year was blogs like Wee Wonderful, Allsorts, Inspireco, Loobylu, Posie Gets Cozy. To me when I think of these blogs, I think of rick rack, pom-poms, gingham, yo-yo's, polk-a-dot's and lots of red. I looks to these elements to inspire me. Also, as I am sure the rest of you, I have to spend as little as possible. I really needed to use what I had or make the most of what I bought.

I started with a pound of cheap red yarn and made a bunch of pom-pom's. From little to giant. Also small bits of fabric. I was going to make yo-yo's but I found it easier (since I made a lot) to cut small strips and gather them into rosette's. I left the edges raw.

The first thing I made was a garland. I simply left long yarn tails on my pom-poms and tied them together. Then glued the rosette's to the yarn. I love the green and red candy stripped fabric with the red polk-a-dots. Speaking of garlands go check out Nesting Place Garland Show and Tell. I will be back with more xoxox

Clarice, I love it! I've been on pins and needles waiting for you to get your new camera. I always enjoy seeing your ideas, and this is a good one. One of my favorite things that you do, is to line the back of your cupboard with paper. That always looks so nice.

Yay! So happy you've got a new camera and can share these wonderful Christmassy pictures with us. I've been chomping at the bit waiting for you to get back to work, Mrs. Claus!

This is a darling hutch and I love the trims and pom poms. As always, you inspire me too, Clarice.
