And look! Actual content! And it's craft-related!
Like most artistic people I know, I keep a (very full) folder on my computer dedicated to images I collect on the internet that serve as a virtual inspiration board. Recently the garland photos have been "piling" up and I decided to do something about it.
Pom pom garland!
This was as easy as it is adorable. A strand approximately 6ft long took no more than 10 minutes from start to finish. The task is simple: use a larger needle and embroidery floss to string pom poms (you know the ones, in the feather/pipe cleaner/popsicle stick aisle) in any pattern you choose. You can spread them out as I did, or squish them close together for a completely different and precious look.
Pom poms are incredibly affordable (I purchased 200 for under $3.00), and even mildly crafty folks should have a needle and thread/embroidery floss lying around.
So, get to work, dudes!
I can't wait to fill my entire home with these in varying color schemes.
