I don’t know what you’re seeing in your neck of the woods but Christmas is popping up in mine. Thanksgiving hasn’t arrived yet but still I’m seeing lots of Christmas decorations. There were even live trees for sale when I went to the grocery store the other day.
I’ve also noticed lots of DIY Christmas decorations on Pinterest. The main thing that caught my eye is wreaths made with pom-poms. Some are super plain and minimalist. Others are used as a staging point for little scenes with houses and decorated trees. They really run the gamut.
These combined with a coupon sent me to the local chain craft store where I picked up a pom-pom maker set. Stash supplied a bunch of Plymouth Encore skeins in white. The Husband has supplied the labor. So far we’ve experimented with the four sizes and have decided that the three smaller sizes will work best. Now we just have to make enough pom-poms to cover the wreath form.
If everything works out well we’ll have a wreath for the front door. If not I’ll have a bag of pom-poms for future hats and will have removed some yarn from stash.
Are you working on holiday crafts? Are you making gifts? Or are you doing decorations too?
