Easy Holiday DIY Pom Pom Art

DIY Pom Pom Christmas Tree

WOW!  This is my holiday secret weapon this year.  Ssssssshhhhhhhhhh.  Seriously.

Refrain from sharing, passing along, pinning, whatever!

Keep this to yourself.  Use an ‘anti-social’ media strategy.

Ha ha – that’s what happens when I try to coin terms at 2 a.m when I’ve had way too much cold medicine.  Am I just laughing at my own jokes?  Hmmmm.  Getting back to this.

This is the one to be selfish about and not share with your users.  Yes – it’s really that good.  I usually save my anti-social media strategy type tips for  the vault, the ‘I need a great idea for little money in a jam vault’ that I don’t really share or pass along very much ‘cuz they are the ‘hit it out of the park tips’ that I need to save for my own personal occasions.  Yet here I am,  feeling compelled to share with you – I think that’s the cold medicine talking again.

This is the easiest, cheapest, fastest, best looking project I have whipped up this year and it looks so good it has made it to my Christmas wall.  For all you “I’m not that artistic, I only color in the lines, I can’t make anything homemade, I’m not that good at crafts” people out there, this is the one DIY that I guarantee will look great and have your friends asking “where did you buy that?” project.  Best of all, it costs about 20 bux tops.  This one actually cost about $13 bux but that’s ‘cuz I found the shadow box for peanuts at $10.00.  Thank you HomeSense clearance gods.

DIY Pom Pom Art SuppliesAll you need for this easy, quick DIY.  Pins, 1 pack pom poms, gold wire – ALL from the dollar store.

Then you need to find yourself a shadow box, maybe a few.  Think IKEA, Walmart, Marshall’s, etc.  I found this one at HomeSense for $10 bux – see the red stacked labels in the top left hand corner?  Stacked red labels generally send my heart into a bit of a skip when I’m cruising HomeSense ‘cuz that usually means big big savings.

I love shadow boxes because they are so so so versatile!  They can be changed as often as you like and they have the ability to make every little item look like a beautiful framed piece of art.  Like this project.  Did you check this out?

Look again.  It’s pom poms and stick pins for crying out loud.  Craft supplies that give my grade school popsicle sticks a run for their money.  That is it!

So lay out your design, pin it down, close the lid and have a glass of wine while you wait for all the compliments at your next party.  Easy, peasy.

      super quick and easy too – I’m gonna brave the crowds at IKEA tonight to see if they have any shadow boxes cuz I’m thinking a shoudl whip up a couple more for gifts

  7. This certainly is one of the easiest crafts I’ve seen! And it looks so cute! I like the way you don’t push the pins all the way in, making the pom-poms stand out more.

      you have quite the eye for detail Debbie – I actually meant to mention that because at first I was stumped because that was the farthest they could push in but then I liked the effect. Thanks!
