Every once in a while it’s nice to find an easy holiday DIY. Don’t get me wrong, I am the queen of long and drawn out DIY’s. I am sure you know that! But when I was out shopping and saw some adorable pom pom trees for $29.00 each I decided it was DIY time. So I went to the craft store and found everything I needed for pom pom Christmas trees! And of course, everything was on sale. So my cost for each tree was less than $10. That is 60% less that the ones at the store.
What You Will Need
- Cardboard trees, in assorted sizes
- Five Pom pom strands, measuring two yards long
- White acrylic paint
- Glue gun
The first thing you need to do is paint each of the cardboard trees. I didn’t want any of the cardboard showing through and this easily solved the problem. Any white acrylic paint will work. Just use enough paint to cover the cardboard.
Starting at the bottom, attach the first row of pom poms with the glue gun. When you start the second row try to place the pom poms in between the poms in the first row. This will give you better coverage on the cardboard tree.
Continue working your way up the cardboard tree. When you run out of a strand, just place the new one in the next spot and continue adhering with the glue gun. Sometime you might need to pull or loosen the pom poms as you head on up to the top of the tree.
When you get to the top glue the last pom on the top and cut off the remaining part of the strand.
See how easy that was? I promise you this won’t take more than ten to fifteen minutes.
