I've been bitten by the bug.
The pom pom bug.
Pom Poms are EVERYWHERE,
and I adore them on EVERYTHING!
Shorts, dresses, shirts, hats, blankets, pillows, placemats.
You name it, and I will take it pom-pommed.
But, you know what I don't adore?
The skyrocketing price tags on all these
I mean, seriously, it is just a little extra (albeit adorable) fabric.
How can it inflate the price so much?
So, I decided to buy some pom pom trim,
and pommify some shorts myself.
I bought these shorts from the clearance section of Piperlime.
I think they were an additional percentage off,
because I know I didn't spend $30 on them
but I forget how much I spent exactly.
I promise it was cheap.
I got the pom pom trim from Hobby Lobby for under $3.00,
and I already owned the E-6000 (aka the best glue in the world).
I simply glued the trim along the hemline of the shorts
and used a small binder clip as a clamp to hold it in place while drying.
There you have it,
my new pom pom shorts!
