Yesterday I promised you a DIY with pom poms. So here it is! This pom pom and paper straw Christmas garland will look great on your Christmas tree or chimney. You could make it in any color, or multiply colors. I’m planning on making a small DIY Christmas tree and this garland will look perfect on it. Besides pom poms and paper straws I also included white bells. It makes the garland feel even more like Christmas!
I love pom poms but making them can be a real pain. Especially when you need a lot of them. So I bought myself some pom pom makers. They are really cheap but it makes creating pom poms so much easier! No more pushing your yarn through a hole that’s getting smaller and smaller each time you get your yarn through. I feel that these things are a must have for all crafters. I have some crafts for you this week with pom poms so I thought I should do a tutorial first on how to make them with a pom pom maker!
When I started blogging about two years ago, I never imagined this site would be picked up this fast. In just a few months I had more visitors an page views than I thought was possible for me. But it was, and it made me really enthusiastic about this blog. The first 6 months I put up a blog post every single day. I loved it so much and I dreamed about it being my full time job.
Then I got sick. Severe pregnancy nausea. I couldn’t do anything and blogging was my last priority at that time. But I missed it, like I missed out on so many things back then. I’m still at home because now I have instability, again due to my pregnancy. So I’m still not able to do many things. But it’s getting better slowly. And really, my little boy makes it all worth it! He is the best that has ever happened to me. I love my little family!
Now it’s a year since I’ve got sick and stopped blogging regularly. I find it hard to get in the flow again, but I will get there! I want this blog to be a success and I want to keep inspiring you. I have many ideas for crafts, recipes and more. This blog is very important to me, and I promise I will get it back to where it ones was (plus more!).
A few months back I started blogging in Dutch too, but the plugin I used (qTranslate) was slowing my site (much) down, so I decided to go back to English only. If you want to read it in Dutch I suggest you could use Google translate.
Well that’s it for now. I hope you will keep reading my blog in the future and I promise I will be back tomorrow with a new post! XO Wilma
Today I have a super fun DIY project for you: Christmas tea lights with a plaid pattern. The nice thing about this tea lights is that if you don’t like the pattern anymore, you can change them very easily. The tea lights are painted with acrylic paint, so you can wash off the paint if you want to. If you want a more permanent option, use ceramic paint that you can bake in the oven at a low temperature. The disadvantage of the latter option is that this type of paint dries much faster, making the plaid effect harder to achieve.
Read on to see how you make this Christmas tea lights with plaid pattern. . .
