Hello there Flamingo Toes readers! I’m Katie from The Casual Craftlete blog. I love to share simple and easy diy’s, crafts and recipes. I am thrilled and honored to be here today. Thank you for sharing your beautiful space, Bev!
Today I am super excited to share my Anthro Knock Off Pomdelion Bouquet! I love all things Anthropologie and am inspired by so many of their pieces. These fuzzy pom poms make me smile in anticipation of Spring.
So, I was really excited when Bev asked me to participate in her Scrap Busting Extravaganza. I thought it was genius and also help me de-clutter my ever growing stash of craft supplies.
As I mentioned earlier I love Anthropologie! I am on their website daily and came across a pomdelion bouquet. I fell in love…
I saw some saffron yarn in my stash and knew I wanted to make my own. I mean, what else I am going to use saffron yarn for?!
Here are the supplies I used:
- Saffron yarn
- Pom pom maker
- Green floral wire
- Stretchy crepe paper
- Glue gun
- Green floral tape
I already had all of these supplies on hand, so this was a free craft project!
Here is how I made the Pomdelion Bouquet:
First I started by making five large pom poms. I used a pom pom maker I already had. I used it to make some cute pom pom pens. If you don’t have a pom pom maker, you could always look up how to diy pom poms on Pinterest. I have seen lots of tutorials on there.
Next, I glued the pom poms to green floral wire using a hot glue gun. Just add a dab of the hot glue to the wire and stick the wire into the center of each pom pom. I had the floral wire left over from my paper flower centerpiece.
I wanted to add some green leaves to the pomdelion’s and found a piece of stretchy crepe paper I had left over from a craft workshop I attended last summer. Y’all, I am telling you I am a hoarder when it comes to craft supplies and materials. Anyway, I cut small circles and made little cuts to act as leaves. Then I poked the wire stem through the center of each circle and taped it using the floral tape. I found using hot glue made the paper stick a lot better too.
That’s it! These pomdelions are really simple to make and take no time at all. You can put them in a clear mason jar or I like mine in this chalky paint pitcher I made at Christmas time.

This morning I forwarded this pomdelions tutorial to my sister so she could make these flowers with her 3 young granddaughters. She replied FAB IDEA, cute and colorful to decorate girls’ rooms! She also said she wants to make them during spring break when she visits the family for several days. THANKS for sharing. Sarah in Minneapolis
