Be Warned! Really Picture Heavy!
Cute right? I actually made these last year and hung them across the windows to make a ‘snow storm’. Now that we’re in the new house I knew immediately where they would go. As you can see, I have an orange wall. Two orange walls to be exact (Yes I picked the color, No it didn’t come with the house, Yes I love it). My dining room theme this year is Winter Wonderland, like the song. Full of little houses, woodland critters and snowy goodness.
To make the garlands:
Make pompoms out of white yarn. I used the pom-pom makers from clover to make mine. I used three different sizes, adds to the snowy appearance.
Sew or glue the pom-poms to silver ribbon. Make a loop at the top of the ribbon. Use the loop to hang from the curtain rods by an ornament hook.
To keep the garlands hanging on the shelf I safety pinned them to a strip of felt and put the felt on the shelf. The ones hanging off the sides kept the whole thing from flying off the shelf.
