Dollar Spot Diaries: Valentine's Day Pom Pom Garland

As I discussed last week, I have a major addiction to the dollar section at Target. I started a new series called "Dollar Spot Diaries" where I plan to force myself into using the things I buy from there. Today I'm going to show you a ridiculously easy craft. This is more of just an easy craft though. It means that I actually did something with my purchase and I don't just have a bag of pom poms sitting in a drawer now. Go me!

Tools: Pack of pom poms from the Target dollar section, scissors, embroidery floss, needle.
Instructions: Push it through.
As simple as that. You don't really need to do a specific pattern. Sometimes it looks better not to. I did mainly because I was working with multiple reds (I secretly included some sparkly reds that I had left over from Christmas). At first I threaded them all on close together, but afterwards I decided to throw in random spaces to add character.
Also introduced last week was the hashtag #COTD- Craftastrophe Of The Day. It doesn't seem like it should be this hard to stage a pom pom garland, but it was. It took me like five tries to get the above picture staged correctly. Below is a picture of one of my failures. My husband told me that I made Chad 5 look like the Chiquita Banana lady.
