pom pom garlands!

<<< psst! you can see a full list of my diy projects here! >>>

would i do it again? : yes!

i made these fun pom pom garlands for K's room this morning. 

it was a quick and easy craft project -- my favorite kind! -- and it cost me approximately ZERO dollars since i already had the few supplies required.

i simply threaded the twine through the needle, then started stringing poms -- it couldn't be much easier! i made sure to pierce the middle meaty part of the pom so that it was secure on the string. i found a silicone pot holder useful to get a grip on the needle when pulling it through the pom.
you don't need to glue the poms or tie any knots to keep them in place if you use a thicker string like twine.

K helped by throwing the poms everywhere, then loading them into his dump truck and bringing them back to me.
thanks, buddy. :)

after making the garlands, we headed up to his room to hang them. 
no matter where you display it, an obvious word of caution:
hang it WELL out of your child's reach.

i was able to use hooks already on the window frame. 

i installed small eye screws in the ceiling to hold up the other ends.
this was actually harder than i anticipated because we have plaster walls.

the garlands are a playful addition to K's room...
 a little something that says:

have you made pom pom garlands before?
do you plan to?

will you be hanging them in your child's room...or are they for you?
