CreativeBug Workshop: Decorate with Hello! Lucky’s Pom Pom Garlands

Personalize your big day with a high-impact DIY garland made from coffee filters. 

Hello!Lucky shows us how to take simple coffee filters and tie them onto kitchen string to make eye-catching garlands, a project from their bestselling book Handmade Weddings.

Dyed pale pink, these ethereal coffee filter pom-poms resemble cabbage roses, and they have a dramatic impact when hung in strands. Because of the dyeing and drying time, start this project early, working in batches — especially if you anticipate needing a large number of strands. perfect for weddings and showers, you can also hang them in your living room, over your dinner table, or in your cocktail area for instant DIY delight!
