Leg work!

Interesting to look at all the different designs on our tables and chairs!

                                        heavy... concrete base


                     just the right worn and shabby!

                                       ..a little curve!
                                      an interesting mix!

                                      more leg work!

         I like a mix...strong and heavy leg for our farm table and delicacy of the french chair!

                       a simple folding bench

                                                             just simple        

                                               coffee table legs made from candlesticks! Hope that you enjoy!

A tutorial.... Pompons, pompons, everybody loves pompons!

    You will need threads .....

Using a not to heavy cardboard, draw 2 circles with 2 circles in the middle of the larger one, the larger the outside circle the bigger the pompon!

    cut out the circles, you have 2 circles
     put your circles on top of each other ...

     using a needle go in and out of the circle with your multiple threads...

      work as much thread as you can, that is how it will look, you don't see the cardboard anymore...

      with a small scissor, insert the point of the scissor between the 2 cardboards, cut all around, be careful not to pull ....

      when all cut around, separate slightly the cardboard....

     using a strong thread go around to secure the 2 sides, make a double knot....
      you can pull the sides of the cardboards....

                      the cardboards will brake that ok, you will have to start with new cardboard...          

                      here you have cute pompons... they are fun to use and.....

     you can hang them. add them to a card, .....

     they are fun ..... I will use mine in a garland with some paper hearts, have fun, great project with the      kids. Hope that you enjoy it! Thanks for stopping!
