To use a pop of lime green with the wine bottle vase I made, I bought some cheap yarn at Michaels. (You can’t beat $2/skein!) I followed the tutorial to make pom poms that I found on this site:
http://dillpickledesign.blogspot.com/2011/02/pom-pom-flower-tutorial.htmlI found that the key to success was in the trimming. It reminded me of the time in eighth grade when I cut my bangs on my own. I got one side crooked, so I needed to take a little off the other side; then that side was uneven, so I took some more off the first side. By the time I got finished, my bangs were 1/2-inch long and stuck straight up. I needed a disguise to show my face back at school! For the pom poms, I just kept trimming until they were somewhat round.
I used some twigs from my garden and hot glued the pom poms to the sticks. While I still have some trimming to do, I think the bouquet turned out cute.
