O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree

7 Comments

So, the ghost of Christmas Craft came to our house a couple of nights ago and convinced me that I need to decorate. And just after I threw away last year’s ornaments in a fit of hormonal frustration. Blerg. Never fear, though, Walmart yarn is here to save the day. I was so inspired by ambrosia girl’s entry on kid-friendly decoration (thanks, Jenn & thanks Martha!), I decided to make little pom-poms. 25 of them.

Now I’m ready to cuddle up on the couch with a cup of hot chocolate and crank up the Christmas tunes.

    Ok, so how is it you are able to make anything fashionable? Pom poms? For goodness sakes. And they actually look really good! I’m sure if I gave you some twine and toiletpaper you’d make something bloggworthy of that also.

    Btw, thanks for the links. I love the Layers one! I’ve been waiting for something a bit edgier than shade :)

    Next up: swimsuits. I’m going on a cruise. Know of any fun one-piece designers?

  7. [...] If you haven’t gotten your Christmas decorations out by now, you better move your booty, it’s almost the end of November! I know a few people that have just gotten married so they may not have boxes of ornaments stored in the attic waiting to be unearthed and loving placed on the newly bought Christmas tree. Here’s a solution, make your own and start a tradition that your kids and you will remember for the rest of their lives. This tutorial involves the most simple of supplies, an old t-shirt to make Christmas tree pom-pom ornaments and comes from Melissa from I Still Love You. [...]
