After the holidays, my home can look downright bleak.
Once all the Christmas decorations come down, it always seems like something is missing. So, I like to bring in some elements of coziness and warmth to tide me over until I’m ready for the pinks and hearts of Valentine’s Day.
The easiest way to do this for me is to use yarn. Just having the texture of yarn in your decorating aids in the feeling of warmth and coziness.
Even simple yarn balls can do the trick. Try making a bunch and placing them in a bowl or basket. Galvanized tin can aid in a farmhouse feel.
If you have a lot more yarn balls, make a wreath by hot-gluing some yarn balls to a wreath.
I made this one 3 or 4 years ago and it’s held up nicely. It goes on my front door from January to March.
I came across some more yarn this year so I set about making a new winter wall hanging for another space in my home.
But instead of just rolling balls of yarn, I decided to make some fluffy yarn pom-poms of different sizes.
Side note: My youngest has been calling them pim-poms, and I hope she never stops. It makes me smile every time and I’m having to try very hard not to call them that too in this post!
Anyway, for the base, I used an old embroidery hoop that I picked up in a thrift store a while back, and the pom-poms will be ivory and white.
I also wanted to include some evergreen picks and pinecones to bring in that outdoor winter feeling,
I made a quick video to show exactly how I put my wall hanging together.
I’m really happy with how this hanging turned out.
It’s just the thing to add to the winter whites and evergreen elements that I’ve kept out after my holiday decorations went back to storage.
And, trust me, once you start making yarm pom-poms, it becomes pretty addicting.
Have you made a craft with pom-poms before? Let me know how it turned out in the comments below!
