Pom Pom Flowers

Surely you have seen these fun flowers before...


They are super easy to make and are sure to brighten your day!

I still have more to make and I'm thinking of rearranging by colors, but I wanted to share!

Here's a quick How To:

Step 1: Roll your yarn around your fingers many times
(I think I counted to 100)


Step 2: Remove from fingers and thread a piece of floral wire thru the center


Step 3: Tie a tight knot with your wire


Step 4: Cut your "ball" of yarn directly down the middle


Step 5: Trim your pom pom to desired length


Step 6: Attach a painted dowel (like I did) with your glue gun or use floral stems that are made out of a paper material.  I bought some at Hobby Lobby and they must have dropped out of my bag in the parking lot.
UGH! 
It's hard shopping with a toddler...

I know these aren't the best directions, but I pretty much used this tutorial:

And then just as I was working on this post I found this:
LOVE! 

Happy (almost) Spring!!

Believe or not, but I had never seen this yet! These looks super easy and they look so cute in your arrangement. I understand the toddler shopping woes. It's amazing how much I can get done when I don't have Riley with me. Thanks so much for sharing at Whimsy Wednesdays!

I've seen with felt but not yarn. So simple and I can finally use up all my yarn. I will definitely be trying this!

I am having a linky party today and would love for you to link this up to my Feature friday Linky Party.
