Happy Pom Pom Toothpicks

    Tomorrow my sister Rachael is coming over with her kids.  I am planning a little picnic in the woods with our new table

    Last week while visiting Party City I saw some REALLY CUTE pom pom toothpicks.  They were so bright & colorful I really just wanted them...TOOTHPICKS!   Now that is bad :)  I put them back on the shelf because they were $6.99 for 24.  That is a little ridiculous. 

   The very next day while browsing the kid's crafty isle at Target I saw the same pom poms.  80 for $2.00.  Now we're talking!!!
I mean who could resist those!  Not me!

Right when we got home Annie & I busted out the hot glue gun & toothpicks.

I dabbed the glue on & handed them to Annie who stuck the pom poms on.


Then, we had a whole load of happy toothpicks :)




I pulled out some pink & blues for Annie's party.

I have to tell you...cheese sticks & grapes taste WAY better with a pom pom.  I bet everything would :)

Just perfect for our picnic!

Fun doesn't get any simpler than that!

Targette'...my kinda store. If I had these out for my 3 squirrely grandsons, they'd be stabbing each other with them, but in a colorful way..lol Have a good one!

Libbie I love these! I just forwarded the link to my daughter. She's planning my grandbaby's 2nd birthday party. It's a "Charlie & Lola" theme and very colorful. These will be a perfect extra touch!

Thanks for sharing and have a great picnic tomorrow!!

Sweet! Amazing the amount of money they want for things we can create ourselves. I think Joshua did a fine drawing of you! And I love your shell jars. Fabulous idea. Wish I could come hang out in your backyard on a beautiful day! Looks absolutely fantastic! Have a wonderful Wednesday! :) Tammy
