Pom pom beauty!


I do love a good pom pom and was delighted when I saw them over here! Wouldn't these be delightful over the Christmas table... 


Simple instructions are as follows:

~

Step 1: Cut circles out of fabric.

Step 2: Fold the circle in half and put a little hot glue on the center, then fold over to secure.

Step 3: Apply more hot glue to the bottom of the folded circle.

Step 4: Press the bottom of the folded circle with the hot glue onto the chinese lantern.

Step 5: Repeat these steps until the whole lantern is covered. Once finished, attached some fabric to the metal frame of the lantern to hang.

And wall-ah!! x

  12. Pretty pom pom's and such gorgeous colours. I remember making them years ago and they seem to be making a comeback and becoming very popular.
    Are your shutters up and finished ? I don't know why but, I'm so excited for you. Probably 'cos I was so excited when we got ours.
    Happy Sunday, Kellie. XXXX
