Mantel Decor with Pom Pom Truffula Trees

Pom poms make me happy. Not only are they cheap and super easy to make, but they make me smile every time.  

I had been searching for a little something to go on top of our built-ins for our living room. I needed something tall to draw the eye upward. So when I spotted this giant Pickle Jar at the

Junk Bonanza

I thought it would be the perfect receptacle for my "Truffula Trees."

Truffle Trees? Remember "The Lorax" by Dr. Seuss? 

"And I first saw the trees! 

The truffula trees!

The bright colored tufts of the Truffula trees!

Mile after mile in the fresh morning breeze." --Dr. Seuss

So here is my little version of the Truffle trees.

I found these little decorative branches at HomeGoods.

Then I made some pom poms with leftover yarn from my stash. If you have never made pom poms before just follow

Dana's video here

.

(And while you are at it, check out all of her videos because she is amazing!)

To attach them to the sticks, I just popped them on. No gluing at all.

Awe... nothing like a few pom poms to brighten up a room.
