DIY Fabric Poms

Every once in a while, you'll stumble upon a good thing within the wide world of blogging. Something that stands apart from the norm and inspires on a level all it's own. And today's entry is blogging jackpot!

Introducing, DIY Fabric Poms! {Sigh}, simply perfection! While there have been many takes on pom poms in the past, I think these delightful little beauties grab the prize! L-O-V-E the choice of fabric coloring! These gorgeous poms would make a fantastic addition to a baby shower! And I can not wait to make my very own!

Supplies: Fabric, scissors, hot glue gun, and Chinese lanterns.

Step 1: Cut circles out of fabric.

Step 2: Fold the circle in half and put a little hot glue on the center, then fold over to secure.

Step 3: Apply more hot glue to the bottom of the folded circle

Step 4: Press the bottom of the folded circle with the hot glue onto the Chinese lantern.

Step 5: Repeat these steps until the whole lantern is covered. Once finished, attach some fabric to the metal frame of the lantern to hang.
