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.
Tools and material: Scissors and glue, straws and a frame.
And here I show you some amazing DIYs that I’ve found in pinterest. Actually I’m kind of in love with the plant hanger!

Happy Crafty Weekend!
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.
– PomPom kit ( or two paper-cartons circles)
– Green wool and red wool
– A scissor
– A small decoration for the top
– a shining thread
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.
