How to Make This Ridiculously Adorable Pom-Pom Tassel Wall Hanging

Y’all, we’re addicted to making pom-poms. Admitting the problem is the first step, right? TBH, we can pinpoint the moment we became obsessed: when we discovered the magical pom-pom maker. Since this fateful moment, we’ve made a glorious pom-pom vest, a watermelon pom keychain, a gussied up duvet cover and even a new year’s resolution tree. The struggle is REAL.

Clearly, tassels were our gateway drug. What’s a DIY’er to do? At this point, the only thing to do is feed the beast with more pom-pom projects, so that’s exactly what we’ll do. Enter the pom-pom tassel wall hanging, AKA the wall art your living room has been missing. Join us in our pom-pom fever, won’t you? :)

Materials and Tools:

Psst: Don’t have a pom-pom maker on hand? Try this nifty trick instead.

Hello, you beautiful li’l things.

To make a pom-pom, place both pieces of the maker together. Pull out a pair of arms, then wrap yarn around both arms until you’ve made a full half-circle. Repeat on the other set of arms, tuck all arms back into the maker, then trim the end of the yarn. Next, cut down the center of each half-circle of yarn (don’t be afraid!). Cut a nine-inch strand of yarn, then tightly double knot through the center of the maker. To remove the pom-pom from the maker (AKA set that baby free!), pull out all arms, then pull each maker half away from each other. Trim the pom-pom into a perfect circle. You’re done!

Wondering how we made those two-toned poms? Simply switch up the yarn colors for each set of arms.

Onto the tassel! Wrap a hefty amount of yarn around all fingers but your thumb. The more yarn you wrap around, the fatter your tassel will be. Double knot a piece of yarn around all layers. Bring this knotted strand to the top, then pinch all the yarn below. Tie another strand around ALL the yarn to make the “neck” of the tassel. Then trim the very bottom with fabric scissors. Check out a more in-depth tassel tutorial here!

Next, cut your rope into varying lengths. Make a small loop at the top of each with a hot glue gun, then let ’em dry.

Psst: Be sure to save 4-5 feet of rope for hanging the pipe!

Once the glue has hardened, you can loop each rope around the copper pipe.

Use a hot glue gun to adhere the base of the rope directly into the pom-pom.

Try looping the rope through the head of the tassel, then glue the rope to itself to make another loop. Trim the excess tassel yarn as necessary.

Thread that extra 4-5 feet of rope through the copper pipe. We fastened the rope to the hook of a thin pen so we could easily feed the rope through.

Tie each end of the rope to itself, then glue a pom-pom over the knot.

Voila!

Now seems as good a time as any to make #yarnporn a thing, right?

We couldn’t resist pairing it with a tasseled pillow. Now we HAVE to make a pom-pom throw to round it out.

Happy pom-pommin’!

If you really think about it, with its beautiful costumes, romance, and beloved characters, Bridgerton COULD be considered an IRL Disney movie. Especially since Julie Andrews narrates, which is a role she plays in Disney's Enchanted! Well, after seeing a viral video that turned all our favorite Bridgerton characters into animated ones, I'm even more convinced this TV show would make a great cartoon.

www.instagram.com

First up, we see Daphne Bridgerton in a beautiful lavender gown. If you ask me, she is totally giving Jane from Tarzan (okay, if they ever make another live-action Tarzan, Phoebe Dynevor HAS to play Jane!), while Kate Sharma reminds me of Beauty and the Beast's Belle. Claudia Jessie's Eloise reminds of Barbie as the Princess And The Pauper or Sony's The Swan Princess which I'm not mad about. Plus, just looking at this animated Penelope, you can tell she has all the grace and kindness (and unexpected edge) that Nicola Coughlan brings to her.

TBH, Simon looks just as handsome as a cartoon as he does in the Netflix series, and both Anthony and Benedict are incredibly dashing. However, this does Colin dirty because he is so much more handsome in real life.

While the video is super fun to watch, the comments are even more fun to read through. "I WAS WAITING FOR BENEDICT AND WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED," one user says, while another agrees that "BENEDICT IS STILL FINE ASF."

"This style of Disney cartoon needs to make a comeback!!!!" a third user comments. The 2-dimensional style is so nostalgic thanks to all the movies we grew up with like The Little Mermaid andMulan, and I would love to see Disney bring it back.

As a self-confessed fashion girlie, I have to say that I always like to feel good about my outfit from head to toe — even when I'm casually bumming it at the beach on vacation. Beach style is so unique with all its lovely straw and linen looks, so when I'm prepping for a day out in the sun like that, I especially love to have a fun — and practical — beach tote bag to feel prepared and put together. And while I'd love to have a designer special for every setting, finding these chic, beachy options on a budget always makes the look even sweeter. So I rounded up 9 beach bags that are fashion-forward, but still affordable so you don't have to panic when they get all sandy! Keep reading to see all of our chic cool-girl approved picks!

After you've finished crying over your favorite Sally Rooney book (and Daisy Edgar Jones & Paul Mescal in the Normal People TV show...again), wipe your tears because the cover for Sally Rooney's newest novel is finally here! The new book, Intermezzo, is coming out this fall, and we have all the important info you need to know.

See The Cover for Intermezzo by Sally Rooney!

The Intermezzo book cover definitely has some intrigue and mystery, but the color palette and classical elements like chess pieces prevent that mystery from feeling sad or scary. Sally Rooney is known for her bright covers and this one will look great beside the rest of her books!

What is the plot of the Intermezzo by Sally Rooney?

Image via Pixabay/Pexels

Intermezzo follows successful lawyer Peter and competitive chess player Ivan, two brothers who couldn't be more different, but when their father dies, they're brought closer in a whole new way. As Peter struggles to balance multiple romances and Ivan becomes involved with an older woman, the brothers have to "find out how much one life might hold inside itself without breaking," according to the synopsis.

When is Intermezzo coming out?

Image via Abby Chung/Pexels

Intermezzo hits stores September 24, 2024. You can pre-order the novel now.

Why do people love Sally Rooney so much?

Image via Amy Sussman/Getty Images

Sally Rooney's books resonate with readers because of how realistic they are, and how raw her characters' relationships are. She doesn't shy away from the complexities of being human, but even though her stories can be heartbreaking, she writes in such a beautiful way that I don't even mind!

What does Intermezzo mean?

Image via Christina Morillo/Pexels

According to Merriam-Webster, an intermezzo is a "movement coming between the major sections of an extended musical work" or a "usually brief interlude or diversion." I'm definitely thinking the book will emphasize how Peter and Ivan's struggles are brief, and how family bonds (and FOUND family bonds) are stronger than any heartache we go through.

There's a super cute video of Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones that's floating around, and I have one question: are they secretly dating? It may not be fair to ask, but I can't help it — I just love a celebrity couple! Plus, I mean, if someone could catch my attention at a literal Gucci fashion show like Paul and Daisy here, I'm thinking we're definitely more than friends because hello? GUCCI? Nothing could break my gaze from all that goodness unless I was head-over-heels for someone.

Viral video aside, it's hard to ignore their steamy chemistry in the TV adaptation of Sally Rooney'sNormal People, or their Met Gala run-in. However, the pair hasn't officially released a statement that confirms — or denies — anything. Given all that, here's what's evident about the nature of their friendship...and potential relationship.

Paul Mescal And Daisy Edgar-Jones Share THAT Met Gala Moment

After they took the world by storm as star-crossed lovers in Normal People, Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones reunited at the Met Gala in 2022. While they got their own shot together (pictured above), they also shared a moment that you'd miss if you blinked. In a moment of what seems like pure pining, while Paul Mescal and Phoebe Bridgers snap a photo together...it sure looks like his gaze leads right to one miss Daisy Edgar-Jones.

Later that year, during her Elle UK interview, Daisy Edgar-Jones revealed she was a fan of Paul Mescal's mustache. Up until that point, he hadn't been sporting any facial hair, so it was nice to see her supporting his new look. She said, "Oh, I love it. Paul can pull off anything." Hmm...I see. 👀

Paul Mescal And Daisy Edgar-Jones Support Each Other When It Counts Most

In a beautifully captured moment, Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones embraced after his acceptance of a British Independent Film Award for Aftersun. This also occurred in 2022 and it makes me think this could indicate the turn of their relationship, if they're actually dating...

Daisy Edgar-Jones Has The Famous Chain From Normal People

Image via Enda Bowe/Hulu

Connell's chain in Normal People is, was, and always will be iconic. There's just something about it! Well, earlier this year, Paul told The Times that Daisy actually has Connell's original chain from Normal People, despite how much fans on the internet coveted it themselves.

And the way he revealed this information? Even better. The writer thought Paul was wearing the chain during the interview, but he wittingly proved otherwise. "It’s not...Daisy has that one," he said. SWOON!!!!!

What's the final verdict?

Image via Enda Bowe/Hulu

As much as I'd love to know if Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones have a special thing going on, Grazia seems to be convinced they're actually just really good friends who care about each other. It's honestly not much different than my Bridgerton faves, Nicola Coughlan and Luke Newton. I guess all the on-screen chemistry in the world doesn't a relationship make...yet. 😏

I guess for now we'll just have to keep dreaming, or writing fan fiction!
