Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend! Ours was filled with tons and tons of cookie baking. Chris also came down with a bug, and I thought I was going to skip the wine tasting party…. but the thought of all my friends there without me was too much to bear. I left him at home in bed at 8 pm, Rudolph on the TV for the kids, and headed out for the evening. One of my friends actually was kind enough to offer me a ride, and I said, “Oh, no, I am in my pj’s although it’s so tempting.” Five minutes later I got a text, “We are on our way.” “HERE????” “Yes, be there in 5.” Oh man! I raced upstairs and told Chris, sorry, but I guess I am going! And got myself dressed and somewhat presentable and headed out like a flash. I was glad I did, as it was nice to gather with friends for the evening after being in a house with a sick husband all day. Anyhow….
Guess what? It’s the last week of Dare to DIY! I have had a blast hosting along with Kim, Michelle, and Rachel. Today we are decking the halls! I have a fun kitschy little project with no before or during photos because sometimes I am lame like that. Oops. My hands were too busy pom-pom-ing away to take pictures.
I started with a white wreath from Jo-ann’s and some rainbow yarn. I made about 10 pom poms in 3 different sizes, using my pom pom makers that my best friend gave me last year for Christmas. She is the pom pom queen. She also advised me on this wreath a bit when I got stuck. She’s crafty like that.
Anyhow, I tied the pom poms all in a cluster, added a few mini vintage ornaments that I also tied on, and then took a bunch of yarn strands and tied a bow on the other side. Here is the result!
Although the colors look lovely against my front door, I actually made this as a gift for a friend of mine who loves color in her home! I gave it to her Friday and she loved it! She hung it in her kitchen and sent me a picture. 🙂 I was just happy she loved it!
