Holiday Decor

The holidays are underfoot and I've started a decoratin' up the store!  This year I'm continuing the 2006 pom-pom experiment and takin' it to the walls. I finished the garlands shown above last week, and I'm in love, they look perfect!  Only 2 walls and 2 doors to go.  

My pom-poms are made with the Clover Pom-Pom Maker (sz. Lg), which are available at  Knit-O-Matic.  I use any kind of acrylic yarn, but the silky stuff is harder to work with and the chunky stuff goes faster. Red Heart Super Saver gives good pom-pom value, and is affordably available at Walfart.  Also, be sure to have a couple pairs of cheap, sharp scissors on hand - a trip to the dollar store will pay off.
