Did you know that I have a somewhat unhealthy fascination with pom-poms?
Or do you call them pompoms? Or maybe pompons?
Anyway, I think that they are super cute. I mean, despite the fact that my children [and cats!] think that they are toys, I insist on decorating with them, like I did here in my Pumpkin Garland. And I think that they make great decoration on gifts. I still love this little pom-pom blanket that I made for my coworker’s little girl.
Anyway, I wanted to create a Valentine’s Day centerpiece, and given my love of pom-poms….well, you may be able to guess where this is heading.
I took an awesome little cache pot from Ikea. This little guy is cute without being overly girly--it's the Skurar plant pot, and at $3.99, it is a inexpensive investment...I can see me using this for all kinds of things!
Then I took a whole bunch of pom-poms I made using this technique I shared with you previously. In order to make the stems, I just pushed some pipe cleaners through the center of the pom-poms.
I wrapped a bunch of baker's twine that I found for cheap at Target around the planter. Yay Target Dollar Spot! Then, I used a baking soda and corn starch heart that I made at the same time as my Baking Soda Ornaments.
I think it's the perfect touch to give a little "love" to the planter...I just used some twine to tie it on! After placing all my pom-pom flowers into the cache pot, the final touch were some curly dried twigs that I have had forever. And that's it! A sweet little Valentine's Day centerpiece!
