Turn a Boring Pen into a Pom-Pom Pen

Antrhopologie-Knockoff-Pom-Pom-Pencils

This morning I shared some pretty sewn paper envelopes that add an extra special touch to a note or card. I love the idea of taking it a step further and giving Mom a set of handmade envelopes and stationary with pretty pens like these from The Casual Craftlete. Katie dressed up some cheapo pens she’d gotten for free from banks and other businesses with yarn and twine. Sometimes, it’s the little things, like a pom-pom on the end of your pen, that make the day a little brighter!

Wintery Pom-Pom Yarn Wreath

Melaine from My Sweet Savannah had been wanting to make a puffy yarn wreath like one from Anthropologie for some time. After a fellow blogging buddy made one and showed just how easy it was, Melaine was motivated to get her pom-pom on and create her own. I just love how thick and soft this wintery wreath looks – so perfect for these coooold days!

Puffy Pom-Pom Yarn Wreath

I love a good DIY wreath, and this puffy pom-pom wreath made by Tara from Between You and Me is totally swoon-worthy! The great news is that’s also totally doable for the crafter and non-crafter alike. I absolutely adore the peppermint stick ribbon and the fact that this is a Christmas wreath that doesn’t scream Christmas. With a quick ribbon change, it could take you all the way through winter!

Colorful Pom-Pom Magnets and Pushpins

After making a bunch of pom-poms for a photo shoot, Meredith from One Sheepish Girl certainly couldn’t let the colorful beauties go to waste sitting in plastic bags. She came up with a simple DIY to put them to use by hot gluing magnets and pushpins to the backs of the smaller poms. Meredith says she loves the color and texture they add to her inspiration board.

No-Sew Pom Pom Quilt

Kelly from The Lily Pad Cottage is loving herself some pom poms right now. So when she saw the adorable Crinkle Puff Quilts at PB Teen, Kelly had to have one for her daughter’s room and knew she could easily fashion one herself. Kelly got to work making her own pom poms out of yarn and then attached them to a white quilt she already had. Kelly says, “This project is so easy and no-sew! I’m so happy with how it turned out.”

Felt Mistletoe

Make-Mistletoe-from-Felt-ItsOverflowing1

When West Elm sold out of felt mistletoe before November even ended, Aimee from It’s Overflowing gathered a few basic crafting supplies to recreate the holiday plant. Floral wire gave life to yarn and felt and made it super easy for Aimee to shape her mistletoe. These are adorable to hang on gifts or in hallways for extra smooches!

Branch Letter Ornament

It certainly hasn’t escaped the notice of Danie from [a few good things] that some of Anthropologie’s yummy eye candy is easily reproducible. In fact, she recreated one of their monogrammed ornaments using only two materials – sticks and yarn. While $8 may not seem too steep to actually purchase something from Anthropologie, I’ll take Danie’s free version any day! Especially since it looks like it could be right there in the catalog!

Pom Pom Wreath

Easy-Anthropologie-Knockoff-Cream-Tufted-Wool-Wreath-Tutorial-ItsOverflowing.com2_.jpg

I am totally digging all the alternatives to the traditional Christmas wreath that have been floating around. This fluffy yarn wreath made by Aimee from It’s Overflowing takes the cake! I love all the texture, and literally all you need is some yarn and a wreath form. I honestly think Aimee’s wreath is waaay better than its $128 Anthropologie counterpart.
