Easter Grass Pom Pom Alien!
Every Easter we end up with the basket grass everywhere
I despise it!
This year I decided to do something with it
(I'm still finding maverick strands every once and awhile all over the carpet)
|This could be my stock Easter photo, this happens EVERY YEAR!|
I knew that I wanted something puffy that hangs because I love hanging things from the ceiling
so I brought out some pieces of yarn and ribbon and decided to try making a pom pom
I just added all the yarn and ribbon I wanted into a big rounded pile
then I used a pipe cleaner tied around the middle to keep it all together
the grass is so fluffy that you can't even see the pipe cleaner
I tied fishing line to the pipe cleaner
added an eye
stuck in some feathers
and now I have a cute little green Easter grass alien hanging in the art studio!
I love him!!!
|Wonder what I should name him?|
I thought making a little alien would be really exciting to C but it wasn't
since I had some Easter grass left over I decided to make her and A
Easter Grass Pom Pom Wands!
Miss C is big time into princesses right now so I knew she'd love having a wand
A is into whatever C is so I knew she'd love having a wand as well
I just brought two sticks in from the yard
dowel rods would be nice though
To make the pom poms I just used two pipe cleaners crossed around the middle to make sure that I caught all the stray pieces of grass
I slipped the stick in under the pipe cleaners and used another pipe cleaner wrapped around the stick and the ends of the two pom pom pipe cleaners
Then I wrapped ribbon around the ends of the pipe cleaners to cover any sharp ends
Miss C has been having a lot of fun running around
people on the head
and since it's a fluffy pom pom it doesn't hurt!
All the Easter grass is used up!!!
What do you do with your Easter grass?
