So I have been waiting patiently to post this year's holiday wrapping! Each year I try to do something a little different; either in color, fabric or mood. I'm not quite sure what this year's theme is...maybe Ginger Monkey's (that's what Andy calls the wrapping paper with Gingerbread-like men -- got it from Ikea last year)?
Anyway, I had seen this miniature fabric flower garland featured on Once Wed a while back (blog post here, in case you missed it) and have been dying to try them out for a while now. I used some leftover navy blue chiffon an old pillow case from Ikea and an ill-fitted dress from Forever 21 (it was a total impulse buy, I fell in love with the print and bought it without trying it on; given their no return policy it went in the fabric bin right away). The directions on Once Wed are super easy to follow, all you need is some fabric, thread and a needle. I am now obsessed with them! I'm trying to find ways to incorporate them into everything dress, decor, design and even our wedding. I'm toying with the idea of creating multiple garland strands that will be strung together over our head table to add some color and interest. Any thoughts or other ideas for these adorable flower poms?
Next up...Once Wed's Fabric Poms -- a larger version of these mini flower poms!
Andy and I are headed to my parents tonight for a couple days and then will join his family for Christmas day. Looking forward to the nice long weekend ahead of us. I hope you all have a very happy Christmas with your loved ones. I will be back next week with some New Year's Eve posts. Until then, safe travels!!
