I must give credit to Brave Girl’s Club for prompting this adventure. I saw a picture they posted with the cutest umbrella with little pom poms all around. I was thinking about how I haven’t found a solution for the hot five o’clock sun on the front porch yet. Then I saw these umbrellas at Aldi for $17!
And THEN I remembered I had a stash of pom pom trim.
But, as you can see, it is the wrong color:( It is a good thing I am not afraid of a mess. Here is why:
I painted them the right color! It could have been a disaster! But it wasn’t a disaster. It was sticky, and stinky, and I won’t even start about the finger burning hot glue gun…
As we speak I am waiting for pom poms to dry. I like what I see so far.
