Hey there!  Ok, ok...I am totally cutting it close for this week's Granny Chic a Week project.  But this one is a quick and easy one that will add a pop of color and never die!

This has been on my to-do list for YEARS! And now that it is done, I am loving it!

Here is what you need:

Pom poms.  These are ones that I made using the technique I talked about last week.  Check that out here.  This is an AWESOME way to use up those small balls of yarn from other projects!

You will also need some floral stem wire and floral tape.  You can find them at the links provided or at pretty much any craft supply store.

How to make your bouquet:

Once you have the pom poms made, this is super easy!

First, take some floral wire and carefully push it up through your pom pom.  Do this slow and support the pom pom so all your yarn doesn't come apart.

The cat has to sneak into every one of these tutorials....
Next, make an upside down 'V' with the wire.  We will carefully snake this back through the pom pom.

Carefully press the wire back through the pom pom, like below.  Pull slowly until it is just hidden in the fluff of the pom pom.  If you pull too hard, the strings will just pull out and ruin the pom pom.

Now you should have something that looks like this.  

Carefully peel off some floral tape and we will start wrapping...

Kind of pull up the yarn at the bottom to finish wrapping the wire.

Now you should have one completely flower!

Easy, right?  Now just repeat until you have your desired number of flowers for your bouquet, grab a cute vase, and display!  

Check back again next week for our next granny chic project! 


PS - If there is something you have seen but can't find a tutorial on, maybe I can help!  Let me know what granny chic project we should work on.  Or just share your project!
