Pom Pom Garland Deluxe!

A beautiful sight, we're happy tonight, walking in a pom pom wonderland.  Some of you know about my obsession with pom poms.  My pom pom garland is finally finished and hanging on the stairs.  It's a little funky and homespun, but I am thrilled with it.  All my pom pom dreams are fulfilled.

We balanced the garland by making the Currier and Ives children prints that hang on the stair wall into reindeer.  (I love these prints.  They used to hang on the stairs at my in-laws' house.  They are just about my favorite thing.)  Some years, the prints sport bows; one year each child wore a construction paper Santa hat.  This year, my daughter made antlers and felt noses.  I got the idea from Country Living.  They showed the noses and antlers drawn onto picture glass with dry erase markers.  I like our version better since the antlers can extend onto the frames.  Pretty cute, huh?

Cute in a mutant way!
