DIY it! | Pom-Pom Wreath

My friend Steph and I are the kind of people who stroll through home decor stores and nonchalantly state, “Oh, I could totally make that”. We happened upon a variety of be-feathered and lushly pom-pom’d holiday decor items during an early fall peruse of one of our favourite shops and…
