Art Room Design DIY ::: Pom Pom Ceiling

Pin It

Previously, I shared the way I keep our family organized with IKEA cubbies and simple chalkboard tags.  Today, we are just going to dive into the fun stuff -- namely POM POMS.  This post has been previously published on Craft Unleashed and supply links are to Consumer Crafts (not affiliate links).

Before I show you the fun, let me show you the BEFORE.

When the house was a bed and breakfast, this was the billiards room, complete with pool table (of course) and hanging stick rack (check out the hangers still in the wall on the verrrry left side of the photo above).  The colors were just far too dark for me and I had already pegged this room for my writing and photography, so the red had to go.  It was casting a terrible magenta onto every picture I took and I did not feel like battling it everytime I needed to do indoor photos in the winter.  Thus - BYE BYE carpet.

When we ripped up the carpet, we were VERY lucky to find pretty wide-planked (pine?) flooring underneath that matched the living room across the hall.  The wood planks themselves were in good shape, there was no glue to deal with (only staples) and the only repair will be filling in all the "chinks".  Lucky INDEED!

Living Room -- Note the floors in better condition over here...
Once the floors were neutralized, I focused my attention UP.

Once that wallpaper had been neautralized to photo-friendly white, the room was starting to get a bit boring.  Enter full garlands of pom poms strung swooping from the ceiling in joyful glee.   ...and yes, since you asked, they ARE only $1.67 per  foot length.  Talk about affordable!  While I have happily made plenty of my own garlands, I am much happier utilizing these pre-strung beauties!

So happy that there are now over 20 of them floating around my work room ceiling.  No, really.

Y'all, there is something SO happy about pom pom garlands above your head while you work.

I didn't stop at swoops above my workdesk though.  The kids asked for some above their art table, so I was happy to oblige!  The table is small and round, so we decided to go with a happy circle design that mirrored the table.  We started by laying the pom pom garlands out, with the ends in the center of the table.

Then, the center of the garlands was lifted and secured to the ceiling with two clear push pins.

The result is 9 "tails" hanging down from the ceiling.  To make even "swoops", I stood in the center of the table and attached the garland pieces at exactly one of my arm's length, again with a clear thumbtack directly into the ceiling.

I started with two pieces directly across from one another and then filled in the rest with even spacing between them.

I think these fun, inexpensive, fuzzy garlands would be perfect for a birthday party or wedding, 
but really, who wants to stop there?  Garlands all year round sound right to me!

Next on the list -- I share the "clipboard wall" and show you how "THE BOOK" was created starting on the clipboard wall and ending up on the grid.

See you soon!
