Pom Pom Heart Pillow Love {DIY Decor}


I am in love with pom poms!  Pom pom crafts are super fun and you can’t help but smile when you’re working with them.  This Pom Pom Heart Pillow is a simple project to add a little sweetness to your room.

Gather up a bunch of trimmed pom poms…I used 22 pom poms for my heart.  To give you a little perspective on the size I will tell you that this is a simple 17 inch pillow.  The completed heart is 9” x 9” full of 2 inch pom poms.

How To Make Cement Candle Holders


I absolutely love this idea! These DIY cement candle holders are just so bulky and solid looking. I know something similar at the store would easily cost $30 or more. Especially a detailed one with accent pebbles. Head on over to the Centsational Girl’s blog for the full tutorial. Enjoy!
Supplies to recreate:
  • Plastics in various sizes for outside mold.  They can be storage containers, deli containers, or juice jugs
  • Yogurt cups for inside mold
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • Plastic sheeting
  • Rapid set cement mix from home improvement store (I recommend the 55 lb. bag over the 10 lb. box if you want to do more than just a few small tea light candleholders.)
  • Plastic bucket for mixing
  • Stir stick (pick up a free one in the paint department)
  • Measuring cup
  • Sanding pad
  • Latex gloves
  • Outdoor ‘Patio Paint’ in colors of choice

Done! Fun to do! There are many ways to put these Friendly Sock Snowmen together. We used Grandma's instructions so there was no sewing. We used a tube sock for the snowman, a woman's sock for the hat and glued on embellishments to personalize each one.
You'll need the following:
  • 1- white sock.  Use one that has a mid-calf or knee high tube on the top.
  • decorative socks (the argyle ankle socks shown plus many other styles are at Target for $1)
  • Rice for filler
  • twine or ribbon
  • rubberbands
  • buttons
  • something for the nose (I used the top of a bbq stick that I painted orange)
