It started so wrong...


...but it ended so right!

It's Laura here today sharing my tale of a ribbon pom pom that went very wrong and ended up as a rather nice sweetie dish.

I started out by gathering a collection of green ribbons: gingham, grosgrain, sheer, velvet, dots, glitter bling and more!

I attempted to make a pom pom but it looked awful - just like a bundle of dead ribbon!  I un-tied it and sat looking in horror at this pile of ruined ribbon...




Then an idea struck - what if I tied these little bits around another piece of ribbon and wrapped it around the stem of a glass?  And this is what the sorry pile of ribbon became...




So the moral is even if something you are trying to create goes wrong don't give up!  Keep thinking it through and trying different things - you never know what you will come up with!


 

Have a good day
:)

P.S.  I still haven't given up on the pom pom idea either!  :)

Dead ribbon! Oh dear how awful. Glad you could work your magic on it Laura, instead of a pom pom it now looks after your bon bons!
