I want to show you how easy it is to make this Pom Pom Christmas Tree decoration that I am using on my mantle this year. I love to decorate for Christmas, and I never ever use the same thing as the year before. What’s funny is I hardly ever purchase any new Christmas decorations. I usually end up using things that I already have or making over things that I have found at thrift stores.
I had been seeing a lot of Christmas trees made with Christmas balls and mounted on plywood this year. I love the look of the tree on the mantle but I wanted mine to be a little different.
I knew I had an old mirror that would be perfect in red on my mantle.
The easiest way to paint a mirror is to find a piece of cardboard and tape it to the mirror. Be sure to have the entire mirror covered to protect it from the spray paint.
I had purchased some large pom poms from Michaels and had intended to use them for another project but I thought they would be perfect for my Christmas tree. If you can not find any pom poms you can make them. The tutorial is on my Easy Pom Pom Tutorial post.
I did not want to damage the pom poms so I decided that the best way to stick the pom poms onto the mirror would be to tape them. You could probably use hot glue because it should pop off when you decide to remove them. Since I am always changing things up, I did not want to damage the pom poms or the mirror because you never know where I will be using these next!
I found this little Christmas present ornament at the dollar store and I thought it would be perfect for the bottom of the tree.
This Pom Pom Christmas Tree just makes me happy! I love creating Christmas decor myself. Merry Christmas Y’all.
