I'm slowly working on buying/crafting little home decor items for our new house to make it look more loved and lived in :) My latest addition has been these cute little yarn pom-pom flowers!
DIY Yarn Pom-Pom Flowers
They are super easy to make and pretty cheap too!
All you need is yarn, wire cutters, floral wire, and scissors.
Wrap the yarn around three fingers at least 30 times
Slide the bundle off your finders and using floral wire, hook the wire around the center of the bundle
Twist the wire around itself to secure in place.
Use wire cutters to trim any excess wire away
Use scissors to cut the loops on both sides of the yarn bundle
When your done cutting it should look like this:
Alright, but a little scraggly. Use scissor again to give the pom a nice little hair cut!
Keep on trimming until it looks kind of like this...
A few more snips, two more flowers, a cute little vase, and voila!
I have them sitting on our bookcase in out family room with some candles, I think they add a cute little touch!
I think I will make some more for other spots in the house!
