So yesterday I mentioned that I now have a fireplace mantel (YAY!), but am totally out of mantel-decorating practice. For now, our mantel has a row of vases with fluffy pom pom topped branches- it’s really simple, but I love the texture of the pom poms, especially in contrast with the exposed brick behind them.

Since I can think of all sorts of uses for these gems (home decor, party or shower decor, even holiday decor!), I thought I’d put together a little how to.

First, make a pile of white and cream pom poms (I love pom pom makers, but you can make them with a fork too). Then thread the top of a stick through the center of the pom pom (just feel around until you find the gap in the middle). Cluster in a jar and you’re done.

Little bouquets of winter-y fluff- perfect for a (fairly sparse) mantel. Now I just need some Spring-ish decor ideas- thoughts?

      Thanks Jill! The cousins are killing me with cuteness- I am trying to put together an actual post, but the internet here is spotty at best. Fingers crossed it’ll be up next week. :)
