So, when decorating the nursery, I wanted to do somewhat of a handmade mobile, but since I have a mobile, I just needed something to take up space in a corner instead. You can say this is a mobile, but it's really just decoration :) When I started this idea, I did the tissue paper pom poms which I wasn't a fan of. It looked too cheap and not soft enough. And since I've been making a ton of headbands and bows and what not (my neighbors and friends and even family are all pregnant at the same time with me and are having all girls..for the most part :) ), I decided to incorporate the idea of one of the flowers into make a fabric pom pom ball. It's really easy. Here's what you need:
- Foam Balls (I got a pack of 6 or so varying sizes at walmart for about $5)
- Fabric (I chose flanel for the pink and soft felt for the grey and white)
- Hot glue
- String and needle if you want to hang them.
Step 2: Take one circle. Fold it in half. Put a small amount of glue in the middle, and then fold in half again.
Hopefully next time you hear from me this sweet baby will be here!!
