A few people have asked where I got the pom pom’s from for the Birdsong summerhouse at the chelsea flower show – I made them. A perfect rainy day activity or something to do with kids, they are super easy to make with satisfyingly pretty results! All you need is tissue paper, wire scissors and string. They’re cheap, cute and fun and will perk up any number of different events from weddings to baby showers or just because it’s raining outside and you want to cheer the place up a bit.
There’s plenty of tutorials online, this one from a cute wedding blog is a good one – or you can find videos as well.
