Pretty Pink Paper Poms

Hello loves! How was your Wednesday? I spent all of my evening making those popular tissue paper pom poms. They are easy, but waaaay more time consuming than you think they're going to be.




Why was I making paper poms, you ask? Well my dear friend Karis and I are throwing a bit of a Valentine's Day soiree. More details to come but I wanted to make something festive to fit with our white and pink theme. Annnnd how could I not immediately do something crafty when I found a giant, gorgeous, pure white urn at the thrift store today?! It's amazing. And I knew just what I was going to do with it the moment I spotted it.






To make the Valentine's pom tree, I just clipped branches off trees in our yard, the followed Martha's instructions for making paper poms. Easy as that, if you have the time for endless paper fluffing.






Of course I had to include my favorite thrift store silver compote. I just added some pink and silver spools of thread to keep with the theme.




What do you think? Perfect for a pink and white themed Valentine's party right? Hooray!

  8. Thanks everybody!

    Mira! No way! We really must have the exact same taste : ) I really hate the way that DAV smells but I still go there all the time because you can find the best stuff amongst all the junk. It seems like it's older stuff than the Andover Goodwill, etc.
