This is just a super quick craft tip. A few weekends ago, I skidaddled up to Dallas for Steph's wedding shower. I got to sit still, in a car, by myself, for about two hours, twice, there and back, but that's a different story. The point of this post is that I wrapped Steph's gift super cute and wanted to share the idea. I bought pretty wrapping paper for it but was less than impressed with the selection of ribbon and bows at Target. So the idea popped into my head to use yarn. Duh. I'm all about yarn.
All I did was wrap hefty yarn around the gift a few times, make a big pom pom with my handy pom pom maker and tie it onto the yarn to kind of pucker it together on top.
Now, this is not a tutorial about how to make pom poms. Go buy a pom pom maker (the blue and white circle thing pictured above) at a craft store and follow the directions.
But hey, check it out! Cute and novel.
And Steph and I were cute too.
