Pom Pom Flowers



So, let's get one thing straight about me.  I have a fancy shmancy dSLR camera that I still don't 100% know how to use.  I often confuse the whole ISO thing to the point where I get my settings completely backwards.  And let's not even get started on the fact that I was unaware white balance existed until recently so I never remember to change it.

And furthermore, I only seem to take photos in the worst light possible.  Like at 10:00 at night.  Or as I'm rushing out the door in the morning.  Like this morning, I thought to myself, "Self.  You need to take  picture of the tissue paper flower you made so you can post it." So I pointed and clicked and took these before rushing out to the bus.

Now that we've got that out of the way... On to my DIY for the week.

If I'm being completly honest, I've made one of these tissue flowers exactly once before today.  But it was met with hesitation by miss Kelly so I was a little gun shy to try again.  But after cleaning my apartment for my dad's visit, I found a bit of paper and gave it another go.

I completely love this project!  It's super easy. Super cheap. And looks truly adorable.  Next time I'm going to make it in an actual color though.  I mean, don't get me wrong, I love the white flower look. But my walls are already insanely white so it just gets lost in all the hubbub.  You live and you learn I guess.

But anywho! If I can do this. So can you! Just think how cute your apartment/house/car would be with a few of these hanging in a corner/bathroom/rearview mirror.  Only...don't put it in your car.  Or your pee room (bathroom).  That just seems weird. Even for you.

PS. My officemates are lucky they have me.  I made them my tasty chocolate chip cookies this week.  nom noms.


  1. Love the new blog layout!

    And the decoration. If I had unlimited money, I'd have you come down here and be my consultant with a crazy budget and access to all the great vintage southern style Junior League stuff in the antique/thrift stores down here.

  2. Haha That would be awesome.

    I would seriously thrive in a town that didn't have crazy over priced vintage wares.

  3. I'm just waiting for cake balls again :)

  4. It'll happen! I swear!
