Snowball Pom Ornament

Welcome to day 3 of the 12 days of Handmade Ornaments! I’m so excited to have Victoria here with us today from vixenMade! She is sharing a lovely and easy-to-make DIY ornament!
———–
Hey all you lovely Sew Woodsy readers!!  
First off, I want to thank Katie for including me in her 12 Days of Handmade Ornaments.  What an honor!  I’ve been a fan since I first started stalking the crafting blogs and I’m stinking happy to be here!  And to be doing a ‘Christmas’ post to boot.. as it is my absolute FAVORITE time of year.
So, I’m the Vixen of vixenMade.
Here I am.  I’m a stay at home mom of three crazy cute children (my 4 year old daughter and almost 2 year old twin sons).  They rock my world and, like I said, are crazy.. just like their momma.  Which is why I craft!  Besides the fact that I love to create (especially for them), it also keeps me sane.  I’m also a BIG fan of Jesus Christ because He loves me this I know!  
I love sewing, photography, and decorating, although I’m such a beginner in all of those!  But I love me some internet that helps me learn it all!!
Let’s move on shall we?
Today, I’m sharing my love for poms with you because my ornament is a miniature tulle pom to hang on your tree.  It reminds me of a snowflake, so it’s my Snowball Pom Ornament.
And I’ll show you how to make one!
Here is what you need:  
white tulle
white embroidery thread (or fishing line, or floral wire will work)
Scissors
Ruler
Ready?  First off, take your white tulle and cut 4 squares at 6inches x 11inches. 
Pile your strips of tulle then start accordion folding from the short end.  Make your folds fairly small, about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick.

Pinch it at the center like this.
Then, fold it in half like so.  Cut it at the fold.
Pinch the now smaller pile in the center again and tie your thread, fishing line or wrap your floral wire around the center.
It should look like this.  If you’re using thread, keep the remaining thread long.
Now you can begin to separate the layers of your tulle.
Do this until your have one pom.
Now you can tie your remaining thread into a loop.
It will now look like a miniature loofah!  HA!!
You can now hang it on your tree.  Now make more so you have cute tulle snowballs all over your tree!
Fun!  And if you don’t like them on your tree, use them with some decorative pieces like I did.
A soft, puffy snowball!  So festive and so easy!!
Have fun!  And have a Merry Christmas!
