For those of you who know me, you know that I'm not a huge crafty person (unless it involves decorating). But I saw these fabric pom pom balls on a post today from Bloesem Kids and immediately thought those these were adorable. Once I checked out the link on Everyday Beautiful I realized that I could actually make these! All it takes is a pair of scissors, some fabric, ribbon, a hot glue gun, and a chinese lantern. The fabric design has a softer and more feminine feel than the paper and they really almost look like real flower petals.
These would look wonderful hung over a crib (similar to the paper ones used in Ava's nursery) or you could hang them from a tree or the ceiling at a baby showery instead of the standard chinese lanterns.
The complete tutorial can be found at Once Wed. (Wedding websites always have wonderful ideas which can cross over to children's room and party design.)
If you want to decorate with pom poms and don't want to make your own, the Etsy shop Pom Love is the place to buy them. They have a very large assortment of colors and sizes available to fill all of your needs.
