Have you guys ever completed a DIY project and thought, “wow, that was so simple a kindergartner could do it?” Actually, some kindergartners might have completed a project like this. No, but seriously, these POM POM BANNERS are so popular around Instagram lately that I had to have one. I set out to Hobby Lobby to look for a simple banner, but couldn’t find one. No problem, Ill just make my own. Yep, after buying a few materials, it only took about 5 minutes to complete this Kindergarten like project. As much as I joke about this, this simple little project really does make a difference in the looks of my headboard.
I love my DIY wood headboard, but I felt like the dark wood needed a little “accent.” I’ve seen so many ideas on social media of these banners being used on a headboard, to open shelving, to a tv stand. Like I said before, I had to have one.
- Bag of pompoms from Hobby Lobby (1.99)
- String (this can be any type of string, I used hemp string)
- Wood sign from Hobby Lobby with our last name initial “M” on it (1.99)
- hot glue gun
I strung the wood sign through the string (it already had holes on it), then used a hot glue gun to attach the pom poms. I hung the banner on the headboard. Sorry if your offended even reading these instructions because they are so simple.
Done! thats it, super easy!
I feel like it really “dressed up” and added dimension to the headboard. Here is a before and after pic;
Sometimes a simple craft (yes one that even a kindergartener could complete) can add so much dimension to a room. What do you think?
