My try at the pom pom necklace


I love this necklace that my friend Lorie posted. I have a huge crush on gray! I made my own version out of a dress shirt that my husband wore once upon a time. It is moments like this when I don't mind that he is a giant. Sitting next to him on a plane is a different story.
I have a hard time craftlifting without changing things which is OK I guess, but sometimes I get frustrated cause it doesn't turn out as cute as the original.
For my version, I used my Sizzix machine and circle die cut! I am pretty sure that this die was divinely inspired, I can't live without it. I cut out three different sizes and used 9 circles per pom pom. I am not super talented with the glue gun. My pom poms turned out kinda boxy which I didn't like. I decided to sew them together instead. After you connect the ends of the circles just pinch them together and they fluff right up.  I glued them directly onto super soft fleece and noticed that I had

a few bald spots. I just glued in a few extra circles in the middle. I also used ribbon because I have a lot of women that ask for non-metal necklaces. Thank you to Little Miss Momma for being so freaking fantastic!
