I had to buy some pom poms for my daughter's science project. She was making a model of the chemical element Fluorine. She needed pom poms to represent the electrons. We bought a bag of various brightly colored pom poms at the craft store. She used purple for her electrons and I figured I could use the leftovers for holiday decorations. I took out all the red and pink ones, arranged them in a pattern and threaded them together. With the other colors, I figure I can make a St. Patrick's day garland, an Easter garland and a Spring garland. Since they are just strung together using needle and thread, I can easily undo them to create whatever pattern I want.
I just hung them up on my mantel to decorate for Valentine's Day. Now I need to get working on those 'LOVE' blocks I mentioned in my last post so my Valentine's Day decor doesn't look so sparse.
How do you decorate your mantel for Valentine's Day?
