Monday Edition: My Favorite Things

Before reading this post: If you have not entered my giveaway, go here and enter to win a really cute scarf! Due to my blogging absence, the giveaway deadline will be extended until Wednesday, Dec. 9th.

Last week Heather, Katie, and I got together for craft night. It's the first official craft night we have ever had, and it was oh so much fun! I highly suggest organizing a craft night with your friends if you don't already do so!

In honor of our craft night, I thought I would share one of our crafts. This craft definitely tops my list of favorite things! It is the perfect addition to any Christmas package! Oh, and did I mention it was easy and cheap!

You can make these cute pom-poms and use them to add whimsy to all of your Christmas packages.

Picture found here.

The easy how-to is found at domestifluff. They show you how to create a pom-pom flower like the picture below. We chose to skip the steps that turn the pom-poms into flowers. Even though the pom-pom flower is super cute, we liked the plain pom poms best.


Image found here.

Here's a peak at a few of the pom-poms I made! I haven't wrapped any gifts with them yet, but I will try to remember to snap a shot of one when I do!

Oh, and I am considering having a skating party for my next birthday. If I do, I am totally making these pom-poms in pink and purple to wear on my skates! :)

They are very cute! I always love giving and receiving gifts that have that extra little something on the outside.

A skating party would be so much fun!

oh I love the Pom Poms ... they will definitely make cute present toppers! Much more fun than just curly ribbon (which adorns the tops of mine!)
