Once again, Pinterest has made me do crazy things. While on a pinning spree, I found myself in awe of this photo:
This craft was geared towards the following events: weddings and/or baby showers. Well, I've got neither coming up but I still felt compelled to create these little gems. I thought (and still think while I'm staring at them completed) these poms would like delightful in my bedroom.
I gathered my supplies:
paper lanterns (use the small ones!!)
As the beautiful hand model on Once Wed demonstrates below. I started gluing away. Little did I know I would be gluing and cutting circles for-ev-er (Sandlot, anyone?)
Warning: you will lose a lot of fabric. The end result is worth it! But don't say I didn't warn you.

|glue glue glue -- cut cut cut -- repeat|

Now, are you short on time and want to whip something up? Ahhhh I've got the craft for you.
Using a small wreath from Dollar Tree, fabric, and glue... you can crank out this wreath in no time.
Although, of course I had issues. It's probably because I made my wreath at 12:00 AM. My sleeping patterns are all out of whack. Anyway that's another story!
The directions say to make "pleats" with the folded fabric. I tried this and was unsuccessful. My so-called flower looked like a pile of fabric trying to be fancy. I googled "pleats" and was given very strange images. Clearly, nothing was successful. After burning my fingers one to many times on my glue gun and cursing fabric.. I switched gears.
I will refer to this as "Fabric Flower Plan B":
I went for the good 'ol Rosette Flower.
As I'm looking at my wreath next to my bed, I realize it needs a little something ... but I haven't quite figured out what it is. I would love suggestions!
