Pom poms and pomanders

The weekend before Christmas I hosted a girls-only holiday craft party.  

10 of my girl friends fit perfectly in my apartment. We chatted and laughed, with homemade buttered rum, chocolate desserts, and every color of yarn you could want. I taught a tutorial on how to make a pom pom, using either a fork or a toilet paper roll. We made pom poms for our hair, our gifts, our hats, and each other. Some of us wrapped up gifts and created stamped gift tags. I also offered oranges and cloves to create pomanders. The pomanders smelled heavenly and looked so pretty with their red bows. 

 

A craft party is busy and messy but a lot of fun.
