Pom Poms, Jute & Lights | A Christmas Craft

4

December 16, 2015 by Terry

A couple weeks ago while I was resting (trying to..) from the Neurotomy I had done on my back, I decided to do a little craft.  I wanted to make a wreath out of pom poms and jute.

While resting on the couch and watching T.V. I managed to make some pom poms out of chunky yarn.  Believe it or not pom poms are tricky and time consuming to make!  I did not expect it to take as long as it did to be honest.

I tied them to a wire wreath form and filled in the empty spaces with jute cut into strips.  The jute was easy but also monotonous …

This is what it looks like during….the nice thing about this craft is that there is no gluing or sewing, just tying and cutting!

After adding a few larger pom poms hanging down in the center, I decided to jazz it up a bit with some battery powered LED lights.

…and TADA! …

So pretty both in the day and evening!  I sold it at the Market a few days later to a very nice lady :0)

So easy to do and it creates some texture and warmth for the holidays!

Don’t forget tomorrow is Making Broken Beautiful!  Get your favorite past or present projects ready to inspire others with!  Feel free to link up Christmas crafts too!

See you there!

Smiles!

P.S.  I promise to share some photos of the market soon!

  1. Terry this wreath is so pretty! I love the different textures you’ve added and you are so right…pom poms take forever even though they look really easy. I hope you’re on the mend soon! hugs, CoCo

      Thank you CoCo! I am feeling much better this week. It probably took me longer to make the pom poms than it should, I hadn’t made them before;) I hope you have a merry Christmas!
      Smiles!

And it’s finished! I ended up having to make the cushion patchwork style. I Think it gives it a little added character though ;-) feels good to finally get one more item off my to do list! Happy Sunday all! #slipcovers #mystyle #shabbychic #pretty #design #homedecor #thecuratorscollection
Working on this sweet slipcover for my antique chair. All that is left is to fashion a cover for the cushion and it will be done! I have been wanting to cover this chair for a while now and it’s nice to finally be able to get to it. Sharing the final results soon. I hope you have an amazing day! #slipcover #sewing #makeover #interiordesign #pretty #thecuratorscollection
Studies say that people who put up their Christmas decorations earlier are happier… I decided to slowly bring things out starting with all my Christmas greenery. With our Thanksgiving over I can move on to my favourite time of year… Christmas! when do you start with decorating for Christmas? #christmasdecor #decorationideas #christmasgreens #decorideas #thecuratorscollection
Been in the mood for a little pillow making lately.... what cha think of this one? #pillows #shabbychic #plaid #homedecor #diyhomedecor #style #design #thecuratorscollection
When my aunt passed I promised that I’d always be there for my uncle. Every minute I spend with him makes my heart sing! 💕 it fills my heart with joy to see his eyes light up when I walk into the nursing home to see him. I am so blessed to be able to be back home and closer to him. He’s my #DAD #unconditionallove #dementiasucks #makemyheartsmile #loveyou #caringforyoualways
Today we celebrated 20 years! Thank you for your dedication and love. We really are forever... God IS good! We are so blessed! #truelove #happyanniversary #20yearsstrong #soulmate #loveus #bowvalleyranche
