Happy December everyone. Can you believe December is already here? This year I will not be participating in Blogmas. I just can’t find the time to do that many posts, but I will have a few fun DIY posts to share with you all. Some of those DIY’s might include lots of snowmen, tiny hedgehogs, wreaths and maybe even some recipes. We will see what I am able to find time to share, which I love doing. This is my favorite time of year, and next is Easter…I love Easter, probably even more.
This project I am sharing with you today came from a magazine article. I have done twig pom pom trees before, before I saw this article, but this one was so pretty, I just had to try and remake my own version.
Have you guys done that before? I had this friend that used to live here in Arizona, she has since moved to Missouri, that would cut out magazine photos of outfits she wanted to recreate for herself. I remember telling her I did the same thing with home décor. I have a whole folder of fun decorating ideas that I would love to try. Some of my ideas just come naturally, but there are some that I see out in the world, like this magazine photo that inspired me to try my hand at something similar.
Oh my goodness, there are have been so many nailed it moments and funny mistakes over the years. It’s good to laugh at the silliness of trying something new and failing…nothing ever wrong with that. Important too, that we get back out there and keep learning and creating no matter what the outcomes.
This is another really easy craft project. Kids can even do this. Just go out and collect some twigs from a tree. My husband had to trim one of the trees in our garden and I picked some branches from that pile. I painted the branches a cream color with chalk paint and then glued on a variety of pom poms in assorted colors and sizes.
That’s it, see, so simple. Whoops, forgot one more thing. I didn’t have a big pretty green vase like the one in the photo, so I used an old mason jar that I painted green. The green really brings out all the colors of the pom poms, so that is important when recreating this project. A really pretty and inexpensive way to add some cheer to a room. You can display this tree all year long if you like. Stick with Christmas colors if you want a Christmas theme tree. This would be such a pretty bouquet in a kid’s room. Happy crafting everyone.
