Today 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!!
Decorating with items like sticks, berries, flowers, and greenery is a great way to add some natural elements and texture to your home but sometimes these natural items don’t bring us the full color we want – or the color doesn’t last. So I decided to make my own spring buds that will last forever. I used sticks I found in my yard and added some colorful pom poms for a burst of color. The combination of natural and synthetic materials makes for a very fun spring arrangement.
Here are the super-easy steps to create your own pom pom forever spring buds:
Step 1. First, collect your materials: I gathered sticks from my yard. I made sure they were in good shape with a lot of stems and not too many mossy or wet areas. I 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. Then I glued the pom poms right onto the sticks starting at the top. I put most of mine at the ends of the stems and then along the base of the sticks where I thought buds would grow. 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 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.
