FUZZY FLURRY-POM POM RUG USING REMNANTS YARN

I just love the feel of soft, fluffy  from a POM POM RUG under my feet.

I usually spend about one hour doing a craft but this one may take longer than an hour.  My suggestions is to do it piecemeal.  While watching TV you can make the pom pom and another day  lay out the pom and then place them.

POM POM RUG SUPPLIES

  • Scissors

  • Yarn

  • Non slip rug mat

  • Empty paper towel roll

Directions

  1. Cut paper towel in half and set two pieces next to each other.

  2. Wrap yarn about 100 times around the two pieces of paper towel.

  3. Cut the end of the yarn off and gently slide off the roll (very slowly or it will unravel

  4. Cut another piece about 12inches to wrap around the ball yarn.

  5. Tie a secure knot around the ball yarn and gently pluff.

  6. Fill mat and enjoy.

SIMPLE WRAPPING STATION

During the holiday season, if you are like me you may have piles of gift wrap, ribbons, and not a place to store them.

 

Here is just a simple way to store them.

 All you need is a cardboard box or  a wine crate.  (THEY ARE USUALLY FREE AT A LIQUOR STORE)

 

The wine crate usually have slots which makes it easier to just simply organize your rolls of wrapping paper, gift tags.

EASY SOLUTION FOR OLD WREATH

OK !   Last year you had the perfect wreath and you store it for this year, but there is one problem when you try to hang it this year.

DUST…DUST…DUST

Easy and simple solution!

Put the wreath in a paper bag, add 1/2 cup of salt and shake.  The coarseness of the salt will knock off all the dust and voila a bran new wreath.

SO SIMPLE!

SO SIMPLE WREATHS

This was the easiest wreath I have ever  made.  Everything was purchase from Dollar Tree  except for the glue gun which I am sure you can purchase from there also.

All you need are the following:

  • Wreath
  • Garland
  • 1 roll of mesh any colors
  • Christmas ball or your favorite embellishments
  • Piping
  • Glue gun and sticks

Take 1 pipe cleaner at a time and twist them onto the wreathwreath-with-piping

Just keeping looping and twisting the pipe cleaner until you use all the pipe cleaners around the wreath.

  • To start attaching the mesh just gather and pinch from the beginning of the roll and wrap around the pipe cleaner, make sure you keep the mesh pinched while placing on the pipe cleaner.

 

  • Just keep pinching the mesh and add around the wreath they are no more mesh.

  • To keep the size of the pouf uniform measure the pinching spots along the mesh about 10″ apart.

 

  • The last step is to glue and add your favorite embellishments to personalize for color and theme.
