I’m sneaking in this easy, last minute holiday craft: mini pom pom garland, perfect for adding a dose of festive happiness to your favorite house plants!
When I made the cute felted wool ball garland for my mantle – to complement my blue and white, wintry decor – I started dreaming about making a mini pom pom garland version for my sweet tree-shaped lavender plant. Well, I did it – just under the wire, haha. And this mini pom pom garland is every bit adorable as I thought it would be.
I was at the dollar store when I found a bag of mini pom poms in shades of blue and turquoise – too perfect, right? They were so inexpensive and just begging to be turned into a mini pom pom garland.
The steps are so simple. I literally just strung them onto a glittering thread, tied off the ends, and then draped it gently on my lavender plant. The shimmery gold thread has a nice texture to it, which keeps the balls from sliding around. They stay put, even without knotting in between. It was an even easier project than my felted wool garland because for those I actually spent the time and hand felted each of the woolen balls. If you can buy inexpensive woolly balls, garland is a snap to make!
I’m still loving my table top case study planter from Modernica, so I’m really rootin’ for my lavender plant. Please live! It’s a finicky little fella, that’s for sure. Hopefully he’s not offended by the adornment, but I think he just looks so festive with his little garland. Next I need to make little mini ornaments, but that might have to wait until next year.
I hope everyone has a festive and joyous weekend, filled with good food, family and memories to cherish for years to come. Happy Holidays!
