Spoiler Alert! : I'm sleepy (a.k.a. this will be a short post)
Today was a long day at school. We had parent/teacher conferences so we were there until 8pm. I'm a little too tired to write a long and detailed post. Sorry, this little project will have to do.
I found this tutorial from Once Wed via Pinterest (big surprise, right?). In this tutorial they used hot glue to secure it all together. I love hot glue, but I think it's a pain to work with because all the little stringy pieces get EVERYWHERE. Plus, I was using a styrofoam ball, which gave me the option of using straight pins. Once I cut out all my cirlces, I started folding and pinning. Before I knew it, I was done. This is a 2 1/2 inch ball, but the felt added about 2 inches to the diameter.
The only problem is that I did it in hot pink thinking I was going to screw it up. I didn't want to use the felt I really needed for the practice pom pom. This hot pink ball is currently on it's way to Charlotte (but Char, if you don't want it that's totally fine).
I plan on making some more pom poms using the 2 inch balls I have and sticking them in the tree. I don't think I'll even hang them on the branches. I'm pretty confident that I'll be able to just shove them in. Only time will tell...
