As you may or may not know we have been selling some stuff on Etsy – mostly wall hangings and a few patches as of now. But we started the site out with woven wall hangings in mind. We are having so much fun making them and learning a lot of new stitches as we weave our way through a big pile of yarn. My room right now is overflowing with unraveled piles of yarn and the occasional tuft of wool that my dog likes to come in and drool all over.

Since we taught ourselves how to weave we thought we could teach you too! It is fairly simple and you actually don’t need too many supplies – just some sturdy cardboard, some yarn and maybe a needle. No need to go out and buy a huge expensive loom – just go to your recycling bin and find ourself a good piece of cardboard!

Sometimes starting a craft is hard because you feel like you need all these supplies and don’t necessarily want to go out and buy them just for one DIY. But chances are you already have some yarn lying around and if not it is fairly cheap at any craft store. So you have no excuses not to make this woven wall hanging! And, if you really insist, go buy one of ours 😉

DIY Pom-Pom Easter Baskets

DIY Pom-Pom Easter Basket | Popcorn & ChocolateHello from San Francisco! We are currently on vacation checking out the west coast and what everything is like over here. We started out in Portland, then made our way to visit my brother in Eugene and now we are in San Fran! It has been quite rainy the whole time, but we have donned our raincoats and rain boots and have still had a lot of fun seeing everything (at least what we could with the fog and rain)! Today as I’m writing this, it is the first bright and sunny day here. We are about to go to the Golden Gate bridge and possibly walk across it. I couldn’t be more excited!

But, in the meantime, I will leave you all here with this fun and easy Easter DIY. Pom-pom Easter baskets! How cute!

Easter baskets are always essential to any great Easter. You wake up and creep downstairs and there is this wonderful pastel-colored basket full of chocolate and goodies. Rose is pretty sure her parents would put some jelly beans in there because they knew she wouldn’t eat them all so then they would get a treat too. The baskets of candy are always one of my favorite parts of Easter, so we decided instead of trying to terribly dye some Easter eggs, we would instead make some fun baskets!

These baskets are super easy to make and only require a couple of supplies, which you probably already have at home. They are also are totally customizable!

DIY Pom-Pom Easter Basket | Popcorn & ChocolateSupplies:

  • Easter basket (we got ours at the dollar store)
  • Yarn
  • Glue gun
  • Fork

Directions:
To make the pom-poms, we followed this DIY from Handimania. You take the yarn and wrap it around the fork a bunch of times and then tie it off with another piece of yarn and cut through the string. It’s really easy and the instructions are easy to follow. Once you have all your pom-poms ready and made, simply dab a bit of hot glue onto the pom and then adhere it to the basket wherever you want it. We glued ours to the rim and followed a pattern with the colors but feel free to glue them all over the basket and wherever your heart desires!
