Tissue paper poms have been all over the crafty blogland for quite some time now . . . I know. But my house was feeling the need to cheer up a bit this week so though it's not a super-original project, it's still fun. We're quite literally weathering some serious snow storms and wicked cold around here . . . if you've ever lived in West Michigan, you know that it's not that the winter FEELS like it lasts forever . . . it practically does. At the time of the year when I feel like winter MUST be almost over because it's been going on so long already, I have to find new ways to feel good about hunkering down a bit more. Where I live, it'll be winter for a few more months yet.
And yes, I can feel your envy over this.
With a lot more gray and a lot less actual sunlight to lift the gloom, we've been working on ways to make the indoors more cheerful.
Enter the poms:
Little Miss and I worked on them together last week sometime . . . I vaguely thought about blogging on it when we did it, but with no sunlight coming in the pictures were turning out even worse than usual so I put it off. Originally I was planning on making more, but I ran out of tissue paper.
I also realize that I never took a picture of the completed Mi Amor, My Love banner that I blogged about previously. Here's a (terribly lit and artificially brightened, but the best I could do) picture of it in action hanging above our entryway:
Completely out of the loop on the pom-making? A very easy instructable on how to make one can be found right here.
