Cute and Easy

One of my favorite magazines is Country Living.  I get a lot of inspiration from it and I find that they have some neat crafts that are pretty easy.

This is one of those crafts.

I just love how these flowers looked.

My only problem with this is that they wanted you to buy a special tool to make the pom poms.

 

No problem, I knew I had seen a tutorial on one of my favorite blogs.  The pleasure of homemaking today.  Manuela actually made a wreath with here pom poms for Christmas back in 2009 and you can find her tutorial here.

Well this was very easy.  I could whip up one of these babies during a commercial break of Glee.  After making a few I just hot glued them to some sticks I ripped got off our tree in the front yard.
