I had an idea…

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.
