#1 T-shirt Pom Poms

how to make pom poms

they are hands down, one of my fave crafts. there are a few tricks to making t-shirt pom poms, but they are the perfect use for a well loved tee. AND they make killer decorations for weddings, baby rooms, and parties.  and thanks to Pinterest, these luscious pom poms have been viewed a lot!

#2 Bottle Cap Candles

these mini candles are just too cute to pass up! great way to reuse bottle caps that would otherwise have ended up in the land fill.

Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When I'm not DIYing something, I can be found taxiing around our 4 crazy kids or working out. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥
