• Pom Pom Mobile Decor DIY

    Today’s DIY came about accidentally. I was making pom poms for a baby shower and I also had spray painted some driftwood gold for another project, and suddenly a light bulb went off. Isn’t that how the best creative projects happen? I love the pom mobile for a nursery, but it’s also cool enough to hang anywhere in your home.

    What you’ll need:

    First, make your pom poms. Here is a step-by-step tutorial for making the pom poms using a pom maker.

    1. Wrap yarn around one side of the pom maker like in the photo in the first photo. Once you have it covered in yarn as shown wrap the other side the same way.

    2. Close the pom maker and cut a piece of yarn about 6 inches long to wrap around the pom.

    3. Cut the yarn (see photo 3) along the length of the pom maker.

    4. Tie the 6 inch piece of yarn tightly around the center of the pom maker, where you just cut the yarn (see photo 5).

    5. Pull the pieces of the pom maker apart, leaving you with one completed pom pom.

    Make enough poms as you want for your mobile. You can make varying sizes by using different size pom makers. You can even make multi-color poms by wrapping different colors of yarn on one pom maker at a time.

    Next you need to spray paint your driftwood. Once you’ve done that and it has dried, you can tie the poms on your mobile.

    Finally, once your poms are in place, tie your cord around each end of the driftwood and hang it!

    I love the idea of lots of these in different sizes for a wedding installation too. It would make a great ceremony or photobooth backdrop! Or make some for a baby shower and then baby can use one for his or her mobile. Such a sweet touch.

       Walking his catwalk, back and forth and back and forth, all the live long day. #calvins2ndyear
       This is Ella the Great, one of Charlie's good buddies and the daughter of a dear friend. Ella is 4 1/2 and was diagnosed on February 23rd with a Hepatoblatoma (liver) tumor that had metastasized to her lung. What followed was surgery to biopsy the tumor and a chest port implantation, chemotherapy, major surgery to remove the tumors, then more and more chemotherapy. Each round of chemo brought more challenges and more hospital stays. She and her family have braved each of these with such spirit and strength. It is beyond inspirational. It puts things into perspective. Ella is starting her last cycle of chemo today after low counts and complications kept pushing it back. With her momma's permission I wanted to share this today because I think we could all use a little perspective and I think she could use as much love, light, good thoughts, prayers, positivity, and whatever else you believe in or do, and whatever else you can send her way. All Ella wants is to be done with this and go to Hawaii with her family to celebrate. She is a #warriorprincess and she inspires me every single day. Go Ella!!!!  // if anyone wants to send any love directly to Ella, email me at chandra@ohlovelyday.com
