The first project in this Primary Color Playroom was a bookcase, you can see the transformation of an old laminate piece into a bold and pretty storage unit here.
Next I am working on some decorations, today Pom Poms!
I have seen these everywhere and they looked pretty easy to make. I played around with a couple techniques and came up with the one below.
- Tissue Paper
- Curling ribbon
- Thumb tacks
I purchased multicolored tissue paper at the dollar store, they came 8 sheets per pack and that was perfect for one pouf.
I laid out the 8 sheets flat then Z folded them in roughly 1 inch sections.
Next I tied the middle with a piece of ribbon.
Then, to make the ends pretty, I rounded the corners. If you want a smaller pouf cut more off the end. I varied my sizes.
Then gently pull the layers apart and fluff to your content!
Didn’t take much time and was a lot of fun, I love how it turned out.
I hung mine from the ceiling. To do this I tied all the ribbons together at varied lengths then pushed a thumb tack through the ribbon and into the ceiling. This is very light so a few tacks hold really well.
Next up for this room is some wall art. I actually have the pieces done I am just struggling on how to arrange them. I think this calls for some Pinterest browsing 🙂
Stay tuned, hopefully I’ll have another installment next week.
Thanks for visiting.
