DIY Pompom Dupatta Scarf

diy pompom dupattaUnless you’ve been living under a rock (or haven’t been on Pinterest in months), you’ve probably noticed the pom pom trend. I’ve seen it popping up everywhere from shoes to home decor products, and I’ve been dying to jump on the bandwagon! The only thing is, I didn’t want to invest a bunch of money in supplies for a temporary fix. I’m pretty sure I would only wear pom pom sandals once or twice this summer, and pom pom pillows would get booted off my contemporary sofa after a few months. 

I was pretty happy to spot this pink pom pom trim (which I think was intended for scrapbooks) on clearance at Michael’s on recent visit. As soon as I saw it, I knew it would be the perfect pick me up for an old white dupatta that belonged to my husband’s grandmother.

It took me about 2 hours at a slow and steady pace, and constant Netflix distractions to add a little pretty to this lightweight pom pom dupattaI love how it pairs effortlessly with a summer dress. But what I really love is that a dupatta that would have sat in a memory box for years is now being enjoyed and truly respected. diy pom pom dupatta
