I have fun little DIY project to share today. And it involves pompoms. Can’t really get more fun than that. :)
I shared Jack’s room awhile back and while looking at the photos I kept noticing how boring the window looked. I am not usually huge on curtains or drapes (although they can look great in the right setting), so I wanted to come up with an alternative idea to dress up the window.
I took a trip to Michael’s and picked up three strands of green and blue pompom strands and also a bag of slightly larger multicolored pompoms.
First, I sewed the green and blue strands together using just a needle and thread. Then I just attached the larger pompoms onto that strand the same way. There was really no science behind the spacing, I just sort of placed them next to the strand before I sewed them on to come up with a plan.
I worked on this project for at least a couple of weeks. Not because it was hard (it was extremely easy!), but just because I always have about a million other things going on and a very busy little boy to tend to. I just slowly chipped away at it, one pompom at a time.
I really love the pop of color it adds to the room, and it certainly makes the window a lot less boring. Jack loves it too. He tries to eat it every chance he gets! :)
I kind of want to add some pompom fringe to a pillow now… Any other pompom fans out there?
P.S. I finished up my cousin’s bedroom makeover this weekend and it turned out even better than I had hoped (and it’s chock full of DIY projects). So stay tuned for the rundown this week!
