In a Puff-y State of Mind!

Do you think my reference to
puff-y in the title is about my hair?

Ha ha ha -- usually it would be . . .
but not this time!
Yarn pom-pom puffs is what I'm talking about!

So, are you crafty?
This is the time of year when I start thinking
of all the home-made and crafty things I should
do for the holidays!
Many years ago, I made almost
everyone's Christmas gift!
Some of those included:
 hand-embroidered Christmas stockings;
lovely placemats;
aprons; bath wraps,
I was a craft demon!!
Well, I just saw this DIY yarn puff
wreath on another blog
and it inspired me to put my craft hat on again!

The first one I made (see above) is white and the  yarn may be too
 loosely woven as it seemed to turn out like poodle puffs and a little fuzzy --
 it's like my hair on a really humid day - think yarn puffs on steroids!
But, the first wreath is always a test one, right?
Now, I'm working on a red one and I think it
may be too Red!
Instead of all red, I might make it into a
peppermint wreath with red and white puffs -
what do you think of that idea?

Red/white yarn pom-pom puffs for the peppermint wreath -- stay tuned!

Maddy said I could probably sell
them for $2.50 each.
Guess she's not too impressed
with my handiwork!
 Tell the truth -- what do you think?
Wish me luck!

Homemade gifts come from the heart and are to me more treasured than a store bought gift. I think the red and white wreath would be cute and you could even use it for Valentine's Day probably with a different ribbon.

I have been wanting to do puffs this year with yarn with Lainey. Found a few things on Pinterest (of course). Love these!

I love the all white one with the red bow. I'd pay for one! And more than $5! :) Way to go, crafty mama!
