Over the past few days I have been working on a fabric pom pom garland. I have been wanting to make this since I saw the tutorial on the OnceWed blog here. It turned out to be pretty easy and very fun and because it is so cute, I decided to gift it to my friend Elysse (read this girl's blog...she's the funniest!). Isn't she lucky? This first garland is purple in honor of Elysse...this girl loves her purple. No seriously, LOVES it...like it is half of her closet. Our closets definitely are on opposite ends of the color spectrum. Mine is full of pastels: yellows, whites, aquas, and lavenders. Hers is full of darker, deeper colors: purples, teals, dark blues, and blacks. Despite our color differences, we get along fine and agree on most other things. I think she will definitely agree with me on the cuteness of this garland.
I wanted to add my own personal touch to the garland, to make it different from the one I saw on OnceWed. I added buttons! I was inspired by the photoshoot done by Jessica Claire and coordinated by Amy of Weddingchicks. See the fabulous photos here. This shoot was just amazing and the use of all the buttons was different and adorable. If this was my bridal shower I would be in crafty, button heaven. I have a ton of old buttons so I added some white ones to my garland. Here is my version of the pom pom garland complete with buttons!!
