I love Country Living. I love the magazine and now the website. Over a month ago now, I saw this here on their website and decided I could totally make them on my own! They are super easy and can be made in like 20 minutes, seriously. Plus, I now have a super cute decoration and flowers that never die. I mean, I love real flowers, but ya know, they only last so long.
All you'll need to make these pom pom flowers is:
glue (I used E600, you could easily use a glue gun if that's all you have)
Since there are lots of tutorials out there on how to make pom poms, I'll just show you the one that I used. It's a step-by-step tutorial that is really easy to follow. Plus, it's been cloudy lately and that makes is hard to take pictures of me actually making one...lame excuse, I know, but totally true.
Pom Pom Tutorial
So you'll just make your template like shown in that tutorial and then you can make as many pom poms as you want with whatever yarn you have.
After making the pom poms, you just go outside and get some twigs that you like the looks of. Make sure they are dry and not too dirty.
Then, to make the flowers, just add a dab of your glue to the end of the twig and put it into the center of the pom pom. Hold it there for a few seconds to make sure it really sticks.
And that's it! Just place your pom poms into a vase or jar and arrange them however you want. Easy-peasy, right?
