DIYs: What to do with a Bunch of Straws

Some time ago I made the ornament for the Christmas three with some IKEA colorful straws. Since the straws are something really easy to handle and cut and they makes every kids room a bit quirky, I had a look on the blogosphere and found some ideas that can be made by your self.

But first I wanna show you my own straws frame that I simply made with a white IKEA frame and a bunch of colorful straws.

DIY: Pompom Christmas Tree!

Yes a last minute tree is always needed! Especially for whom has a small apartment and a little time. J

This is my DIY of a pompom Christmas Tree. ***You may choose the typical green color (not a light green like mine…) or just make it colorful and very special with your own fantasy.

Processed with Moldiv

DIY Materials:

– PomPom kit ( or two paper-cartons circles)

– Green wool and red wool

– A scissor

– A small decoration for the top

– a shining thread

DIY procedure:

Make a normal circular big pompom with the green wool. Don’t forget to add every once in a while the red wool thread for a couple of rounds.

Once your pompom is made, use the scissor to shape it as a cone.

It is done!

But if you want to add a sparkling touch, add a shining thread on it.

I hanged mine in the entrance of the kitchen together with the stars decoration.
