Following is a guest post by Keri at Shaken Together… enjoy!!
Hi there!! I’m Keri and I blog over at shaken together where I share easy recipes, crafty tutorials, a weekly link party and random glimpses into our family of four… there’s a little something for everyone!! You can find me on Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook, too!
I am beyond thrilled to be here at The Frugal Girls sharing a pretty little way to package your holiday gifts that won’t break the bank!! Say hello to…
DIY snow sprinkled pom pom flowers & holiday wrapping
You probably have most of the materials on hand, so these low-maintenance blooms are inexpensive and easy enough that the kiddos can help! Here is what you’ll need:
- white yarn
- a fork
- Sparkle Mod Podge (or your favorite liquid adhesive)
- disposable foam brush
- fine, iridescent glitter
- thin sticks (look, it’s crafting & yard work, ha ha!)
- hot glue gun
Using the white yarn and a regular kitchen fork, use my tutorial here to create fantastically fluffy pom poms! Hot glue white pom poms to thin sticks from your yard and your flowers have stems!
Hold the stem and use a disposable foam brush to brush Sparkle Mod Podge (or liquid adhesive) over the tips of your pom pom flowers and sprinkle glitter over the flowers while the adhesive is wet. Make sure to prop the flowers up to dry.
Now that you’ve made these wonderful winter-y flowers, use them to add handmade flair to your gifts! One of my favorite ways to wrap gifts is to embellish plain kraft wrapping paper. I’ve got lots of ideas on my giftable stuff Pinterest board
Attach a sparkly pom pom flower to a kraft wrapped gift with striped twine, thick satin ribbon or even jute and add a sprig of red winter berries and greenery. Classic and just so pretty!!
Thanks again to The Frugal Girls for the opportunity to share these DIY pom pom flowers and easy holiday wrapping idea with you!! I hope to see you around my neck of the woods soon! Happy, happy holidays!
Fun & Thrifty Gift Ideas!
