DIY - POM POM SHORTS

As an avid Thrift shopper, I always tend to find the dopest vintage pattern pants, the problem, they are always too short! With Coachella coming up, I wanted to incorporate a fun pattern short into one of my looks, and well, these pants seems perfect for the occasion. Below you will find a quick tutorial on how you can turn any long pant into shorts with an added pom pom trim. 

If you are only looking into revamping old shorts, just skip a few steps and you will be all set. Happy crafting! 

MATERIALS:

  • Pants or Shorts 
  • Scissors
  • Needle/thread
  • Pins
  • Pom pom trim (available at fabric or craft stores)
  • Double Stick Fusible Web 
  • Iron

HOW TO: 

  1. Wear the pants inside out and use a sharpie or fabric pen to mark how short you’d link your shorts to be. 
  2. Take the pants off and draw, then cut a diagonal line, starting from the inseam, about 2″ or more from the crotch, and ending 1/2″ below the mark  straight across. (MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE EXTRA FABRIC ALONG THE LINES) 
  3. Turn the shorts inside out and begin to place double stick fusible tape along the line you drew. (repeat this front and back on each short leg) 
  4. Fold in and pin down your edge to create a clean seam. 
  5. Hot iron the seams down to melt the fusible tape into securing the fabric in place. (repeat this front and back on each short leg) 
  6. Turn the shorts right side out. Pin the pom pom trim on the outside of the leg openings. 
  7. Sew in place, either by hand or with a sewing machine.

Cool home idea on pinterest - give your room a pop of colour for next to nothing. paint that old curtain rail a jazzy colour. A solid colour, or go crazy with dots and stripes etc.

So much prettier! Wish I could do this now since it’s smack dab in the middle of our playroom. But, we’re renting, so, going to save it for our next house.

Valentine Arrows | Evite
What I like about these arrows is that your giftee can use it to decorate with long after Valentine’s day. Well, I would anyway! These arrows are super easy to make and you can customise the colours however you like - traditional pinks & reds or more modern colours like the mint, orange and green above.

Removable Honeycomb Wall Decal | Jade & Fern

Ah, washi tape. Such a versatile, fun product. And yes - removable! That’s why it’s so good to decorate with, and great for renters. I love this honeycomb design, it’s not only a gorgeous feature but it connects that whole area - the bar, the art and the fireplace. Perfect. Now washi tape has become so popular you can find it everywhere from the cheap $2 shops to office supply stores and craft shops. Click through for directions to create your own small feature or if you’re up to it, a whole wall!
