I saw this idea at my friend Sara's house. Her garland was red for Valentine's Day, and it was so cute! Well, since I am home from work with a sick little boy, I thought I would give it a go. I decided to go with gray, because that is the color I am totally diggin' right now.
Here's how I did it:
I cut a 5 inch piece of yarn and taped the ends onto a marker.
Then I started to wind yarn around the marker. I went around about 50 times. I know that sounds like a lot, but it isn't & it totally went fast!
I un-taped my small yarn piece and tied up my wound yarn. Tie it tight!
I put the tip of my scissors on the end of the marker and slid the wound yarn onto the scissors. This is the easiest way I found to cut it. I tried pulling it off the marker & then cutting it, but it took way to long. This way made just one simple, even cut!
Here is my cute little pom-pom!
I took some thread and strung my pom-poms and some black rhinestones onto it.
I then glued the rhinestones in place. I just needed an extra little bit of flair!
So cute, right???
Gotta love me some black & gray!!!
I taped the ends of the thread onto the back of my mirror to hold it in place.
I'm totally loving it & it was a super easy change to make to my living room.
