Hi Kenarry readers, it’s Lori here again from Greco Design Company and I’m sharing a fun DIY project that will add a little spring touch to your home! And if you’re like me, my home needs a spring touch!!
I love to decorate with natural items like sticks, berries, flowers, and greenery but sometimes these natural items don’t bring us the full color we want – or the color doesn’t last. So I decided to add my own colorful spring “buds” to some sticks I found in my yard. I love the burst of color and the combination of natural and synthetic materials. It makes for a very fun spring arrangement.
Here are the super-easy steps to create your own pom pom spring buds:
Step 1. First, collect your materials: I gathered sticks from my yard and made sure they were in good shape, had a lot of stems and not a lot of mossy or wet areas. I also bought these pom moms at Michael’s, and of course, grabbed my trusty glue gun.
Step 2. I broke the weaker branches and stems off the sticks so they were a little more manageable to work with.
Step 3. Glue your pom poms onto the sticks starting at the top. I put most of mine at the end of any stems and then along the base of the stick where I thought buds would grow but there’s really no wrong place to put the pom poms. Just spread them out to create a pleasing arrangement.
Step 4. When you have all the sticks done, find a fun vase to display your colorful creations. I used a large glass vase and put some dark gray rocks and gravel along the bottom to add a solid base.
These colorful buds work perfectly next to my rainbow connection print! Now I just need spring to be here.
I hope you enjoyed this DIY project and be sure to check out these related posts below:
