Spring Blossoms


I saw this idea over on The Wonder Years. As a way of giving a warm and long-awaited welcome to spring, we made these pom-pom flowers. Extremely simple and fun.

First, we wrapped the yarn around LM's hand.


Then we took it off, tied a piece of yarn around the middle, and cut the loops.


We went in our back yard to find a few sticks that we could attach the blossoms to, then put them in a vase.

When they were all done, we thought they bore a striking resemblance to the world of the Who's. So we are taking good care of them.


This would be a fun craft to go along with the book: "Horton Hears a Who," by Dr. Seuss.
