Nursery Update: DIY Pom Pom Garland

DIY Pom Pom Garland Nursery

Emerson's nursery is easily my favorite room in our house. The sun streams in her windows the entire day and each time I walk in, or walk by, I am struck with how much this space feels like hers. It's ethereal, warm, modern and so lively.

I originally had this round wooden shelf above her changing pad. And even though I loved it in this spot, E's little hands quickly started grabbing for it and pulling the tiny wooden animals down. I realized I needed something out of reach, while still visually interesting for this curious little kitten. So I made this colorful pom garland out of some yarn I had laying around. I also added a tiny circle mirror next to her changing pad, because she would always turn her head and stare at a blank wall, and I wanted to be able to make silly faces and engage with her more.

I used this fork method to make 20 pom poms. After they were complete, I cut 20 4-5" pieces of ivory yarn and attached it to the top of all the poms. Then, I knotted the ivory yarn to a (48") piece of ivory yarn. I attached it to the wall using these clear plastic removable hooks.
