wedding wednesday pins

wedding wednesday2wedding wednesday6wedding wednesday5wedding wednesday collagewedding wednesday 7wedding wednesday1This week’s Wednesday Wedding pins are all about pom poms. I went on a bit of a pom pom craze last month prepping for this. They are such a versatile decor element and so easy to make that once you start, you will want to make hundreds of them in every colour of the rainbow.
