So you might have got it by now – my latest obsession is for tulle pompoms ! Who would have thought that one day I’d become a pompom freak ?!! All these crafts are getting to my head ;-) But there’s just something about tulle pompoms… They look like light puffy snow, or balls of light or… Yes I’m going to say it… Fairies ! They do !! They’re perfectly magical for Christmas which is why we decided to cover our whole tree in them. I warned you : I’m obsessed ! It looks beautiful and very elegant – I have always wanted a sophisticated Xmas tree, God knows why considering it’s supposed to be a cosy and homey time of year. I guess I’ve been influenced by the years of reading “home” and “style” magazines… I just love white monochrome Xmas trees !

Anyway, back to the point : I made these tulle pompom baubles in just a few minutes – a DIY tutorial that holds in three easy steps !
