DIY Pom Pom Sandals

We are obsessed with all things pom-pom and tassel! Seriously… if it has a tassel on it, it just got cuter, and we are buying it. Shhhh, don’t tell our hubbies. We wanted to share this EEEEAAASSSY DIY with you guys so you can create a pair for yourself in all of your spare time. Ha!

I (Jenni) decided to take this on because I was not finding the perfect pom colors on my perfect sandal for a decent price tag! Ya feel me? I haven’t done a DIY in a while, so I was mad excited to get my hands on my absolute fav pair of gladiator sandals and customize them. Here is where it all gets good…. my sandals are from Old Navy, which means they are budget friendly, and they are so freaking comfortable. Secondly, we came across our friend, Carter’s, shop on Etsy and entered into tassel and pom-pom heaven!!! You may even have a hard time picking, which I totally did. Her options are endless, so you will have a so much fun picking your own colors.

Here is how you do it:
– Pick your sandals and pom/tassel mix
– Unlace the sandals. I had to cut off the tassels at the end of my strings because they were too big to fit through the holes.
– Make sure your laces are even on both ends of your starting point and start stringing your poms and tassels!

Oh and last step…. make all your girlfriends wonder where. you. got. them!!!

If you want to try and make these on your own, but need a little help, be sure to head over to our IG for a fun giveaway! You could receive your own sandal making kit complete with the sandals, poms, tassels, and a pack of tattoos! If not for you, enter for a friend!!

THAT’S A WRAP! [PART 1]

It is nearly impossible to make it through December without hosting or attending a holiday party of some kind. We decided to be on the hosting end this year, and throw a wrapping party. Wrapping gifts and eating every holiday treat out on the market is truly our idea of the perfect night! 
Cocoa drizzled popcorn cups with peppermint Oreos!

Wrap buffet…
We served Prosecco and peppermint hot chocolate. We are so in love with these drink toppers. Wouldn’t they be perfect for a NYE party as well!?!

Our bestie, Lauren of Rock Paper Scissors, came with these beautiful and tasty antipasto skewers.

No cup of hot chocolate is complete without christmas tree marshmallows. 
We placed mini ornaments (found in the Target dollar section) in shot glasses to add to the “buffet/bar” theme. They just looked so pretty!
You can find these little guys almost anywhere. We got ours from the dollar section as well. We spray painted him gold, and added a festive Santa hat. 

We are so in love with this garland, it pains me to think of taking it down in a couple of weeks!
(Tutorial coming this week incase you would like to make one of your own!)
Remember that large branch that adorned the top of my Thanksgiving tablescape? Well, I kept it around and hung “falling snow” and a couple of snowflakes on it. Just string cotton balls onto fishing line, and voila! So easy, but so beautiful we think!
Our finished products coming up in the next post!
We hope you all are enjoying your holidays and spending time with the people you love so dearly! It truly is the most wonderful time of the year!
