You remember my moving challenge I started in June? Well during that time I was thinking of small solutions to decorate my living room. As you probably know now, I like a lot to create solutions on my own and not buying things right on the shelves in shops! I love flowers and I have very often flowers in my home, I find that it creates life and happy vibrance into the home. But I don’t have always time to buy flowers and I wanted to put something in my vase that would last forever… Of course I can buy artificial flowers and put them in my empty vase when I don’t have fresh flowers but that’s the easy solution. Furthermore you can’t always find flowers that match into your interior except of course if you buy white ones. As my walls are white, I didn’t want to have that kind of color in my vases. I really wanted to create a contrast.
I decided to make pompoms and to hang them on tree branches. The pompoms are made of wool and you can easily buy the colour shades you need to match with the room where you want them to decorate.
So I choose my colors in shades of pink and cream and grey and I did my pompoms. You don’t have to be an expert to do that and you can do something else why making them: watching TV, talking with your kids, talking with your partner or having a chat over the phone.
Then I walked in my suburb and I found some tree branches on the ground (take always fallen branches and not branches on the trees, trees are so precious in our lives). And I made my « bouquet » and put it in a vase as a permanent decoration in my living room.
What do you think about it? Do you like the idea? If you do it yourself, please share your photos with me!
