Hello lovely Buttoneers! It is that lovely time full of crafty handmade goodness again – the next instalment of my Create 30 blog challenge! Hooray! I don’t think I really thought through the fact that I still need to keep going so close to Christmas if I want even the slither of a chance of completing this challenge! Doh! Although, I have to say, that making these bad boys could never be a chore and that their colourful rainbow goodness is such a delight to play around with. As a super fan of colour, I particularly enjoyed hand picking out the different coloured yarn and matching them together (in rainbow order of course!) to make sure they were of equal brightness and pizzazz! I mean, I ask you, how can you have a rainbow pom pom garland without pizzazz!!?
Joking apart though, I think I want to work in a rainbow pom pom garland factory when I grow up, okay? Pretty please?
Who wouldn’t love bright, colourful and happy little fluffy balls of joy to decorate your home, adult and children’s rooms alike, parties, weddings, festivals or even your car!? The possibilities are endless! Especially when they come in not only regular pom pom size, but hulk pom pom size too! Well…I couldn’t just have one sized rainbow of joy could I!?
So, without further ado…Here is my Create 30 – No. 12 – Rainbow Pom Pom Garlands…
First up is the larger pom pom garland, as in a lot more fluffle as the pom poms are a lot larger than average! Each ball of fluffy goodness is lovingly handmade and each pom pom is given a little haircut to ensure an even ball shape, before being hand sewn with care onto a length of orange and white bakers twine.
Bakers twine is used to string the pom poms together into a garland as it is not only durable and hard wearing, but super fun looking too – perfect for long lasting decor! A loop is then tied onto each end of the garland for ease of hanging as soon as they arrive with you!
Each of the 7 large pom poms on this garland are approx. 8.5cm in diameter and really pack a colourful punch! This garland is approx. 130cm in length from hanging loop to hanging loop.
The colours of the pom poms are carefully selected to complement each other and give off a fluffy fizz of colour as you look at each one! The large pom poms really catch your eye and make a fun statement in any space.
The smaller pom poms still hold their own though because you get a double dose of each colour. Each of the 14 pom poms on this garland are approx. 5cm in diameter and really pack a colourful punch together in the garland!
Just like the large pom poms, the rainbow of pom poms go from a radiant red, to outrageous orange, to sunshine yellow, gorgeous green, beautiful blue, punchy purple and end in a pretty, perfect pink – just like a real rainbow!
This garland is approx. 155cm in length from hanging loop to hanging loop. With both of the garland sizes, the pom poms are sewn through the centre so it is possible to move them around, space them out or bunch them together if they are GENTLY moved up and down the twine, creating multiple looks with just one garland – perfect for multiple parties or events!
You don’t even need a special event or occasion to brighten up a room, a mantelpiece, a wall or even a door frame with a pom pom garland – they are guaranteed to add a gorgeous splash of colour wherever they are hung.
Both pom pom rainbow garlands are Ready to Ship but if you would prefer a different colour palette or length of garland, please do not hesitate to contact me for a chat about your ideas or with a custom order request – How exciting!
So, what do you think? Do you have a favourite? Where would you hang each of the garlands? Maybe in your bedroom along a bed headboard? Or draped across a mantelpiece? Maybe in a wedding or party venue and then bring home to continue the colourful, fluffy goodness all year through? I would love to hear your ideas!
Did you know that all of my handmade products are shipped out to you carefully wrapped in tissue paper and ribbon tied in a bow before being lovingly placed into protective packaging? This makes them perfect as gifts for yourself or for your family and friends! Hooray!
As I mentioned in my Create 30 – Let’s Do This! Blog post, I will be listing each Create 30 make into my shop for purchase as I go along. You can now find this little dose of creativity in the Eliston Button Etsy Shop amongst the handmade goodness – I would love for you to grab a cup of tea and explore!
Do be aware that the Last Recommended Christmas Postage Dates are quickly approaching. The Eliston Button Etsy Shop will still be open past these dates but I cannot guarantee that your orders will arrive before Christmas. The shop will also remain open over the Christmas and New Year period if you want to spend you Christmas pennies, but orders won’t be posted until the Post Office is back open (I will email customers with dates as and when)
Also! Last bit of housekeeping before I forget, you can still get a festive 15% off orders over £5 in my Etsy shop until 20.12.2016 with the code: ‘HAPPYHOLIDAYS16’ – This includes the last few remaining Christmas Sprout Christmas Decorations! What will you choose?
