I’m on a constant mission to make my home super cosy and chic, and one shop that fulfils this brief is Anthropologie. Their quirky wares speak to me (specifically “Buy me! Buy me!”) and often have me thinking about their pieces long after they sell out. So when Christmas decorations started appearing on their site, I took note. I fell in love with this adorable tree topper and a pom pom garland that has since sold out. My tree is currently lacking tinsel, so I decided to recreate the pom pom garland – the tree topper can wait for another day.
Once the festive season has subsided (sob), I will be hanging this garland along my shelf for a fuzzy touch to my living room.
What you will need:
- Pom poms (I used these)
- Braided cord (I used this in light cappuccino)
- Thread in a similar colour to your cord
- Cut a length of thread and thread through your needle. Pierce the centre of the pom pom with the needle.
2. Repeat this stitch a few times to secure the pom pom to the thread.
3. Position the pom pom on the braided cord. Wrap the thread around the cord and pierce through the pom pom multiple times to secure.
4. Repeat steps 1-3 for the remaining pom poms. When you are finished, your garland should look something like this:
You can change up the colours based on the theme of your tree (or decor). I grew up in a household where anything goes, so for my first Christmas tree with my fiancee, we followed suit. Can we take a moment to appreciate how cute these Paperchase birds are? They’re easily our favourite decorations (minus the fluffy garland of course). They’re sold out, but Paperchase still stock these jazzy sequinned versions.
