Make it Monday: Autumn pom-pom display

Well autumn seems to have arrived 3 weeks early this year. Despite the warm weather last week, the leaves on the trees have started changing colour…

spiders have been making their presence felt…

I do like this time of the year and have to say it’s probably my favourite season. I love going on walks outside at our local National Trust properties and walking through woodlands seeing what wonderful things God created.

This weeks make is a result of one of those walks and a very necessary tidy up at home. I had come across a bag of pom-poms that I had made a while back when I got my new pom-pom makers. You know when you get a new crafty thing you just have to try it out well I made quite of few pom-poms and since then they’ve been waiting for their purpose and here it is. I had a brainwave to make an autumnal display with the pom-poms by tying them to some twigs and popping them in a vase.

Luckily the pom-poms still had their tails on so I used these to tie them onto the branches (glue could be used if ties were cut off).

It’s something different, I only hope my cats don’t attack it!

Have a good week everyone.
