Hello Friends! So glad to see you today 🙂
Rose are Red, Violets are Blue
I love Valentine’s Day, How About you?
(Look at that – I’m a poet!)
But seriously, I am seeing nothing but love love lots of love all over the blogosphere! How about you? Everywhere I look there is tons of inspiration and I’m loving it. Have you gotten in on the Valentine’s Day action yet? Well I’ve got another little goodie for you guys today. I’m working on my Valentine’s vignette (which I can’t wait to share but it’s not quite ready), and I whipped up a little garland for it but it’s soooo cute that I couldn’t wait to share it!
A few weeks ago, at Michaels, I bought a pack of 2000 sheets of tissue paper squares in Valentine’s Day colors. And well, they were totally an impulse buy but for a couple dollars I figured I can figure out something to do with them. I’m pretty crazy for tissue poms. They are such a fun little way to spruce up any decor, including my sweet Miss P’s Nursery. I just love them so much I wanted to try my hand at making some little ones for a festive red and white mini tissue pom garland. PERFECT use for my tissue paper!
Since the squares are tiny (about 1 1/2 in x 1 1/2) they folding and fluffing technique didn’t quite work for this little poms. I used this tutorial from 6 Bittersweets as a guide for making my tissue poms. To make the garland I started out by making a zillion, I mean, two dozen little poms. This took me about a whole evening sitting in front of the television watching about five episodes Real Housewives. Ha. After I was done fluffing all my little poms. I grabbed some of my pretty baker’s twine (fresh from the Twinery – they have the best colors!) and busted out my hot glue gun and carefully glued all my little poms onto the twine. Clearly, I didn’t do the best job at measuring the space between poms but that’s okay, it’s homemade!
I love love love my sweet mini tissue pom garland! It is going to look fabulous a part of my Valentine’s Day vignette and I have another fun little use for it too! You’ll have to wait and see what I have up my sleeve!!
In the mean time, be sure and check out the rest of my Valentine’s Day inspired projects! Have a great day friends 🙂
