Happy Monday everyone! Here is some more DIY goodness from Julia to kick off your work week: Pom poms are the perfect decoration (I know I just said that about flag garlands, but pom poms are right up there in my mind!). They add a pop of color, a splash of whimsy, and just look plain fun swinging in the breeze. Up until now, I had never considered the possiblity that pom poms were a true DIY project, one that you could actually do yourself and make look good.

We've talked about using paper decorations to punch up a last minute party , but there are ways that you can incorporate paper into your everyday décor as well. My favorite paper creations of late are tissue paper cherry blossoms, which are as pretty as they are easy to make.
