Diy Garland with painted pasta and pompoms

I know I didn't post anything last Friday, but I have my finals at University now and I don't have a lot of time... or any time... at all. So even though I tried to find some time to work on a simple DIY or recipe to blog about, studying won the battle. However, I was staring at the window and I realized there's one DIY I never told you about, I think it was the perfect idea for a post.
Sé que el viernes pasado no publiqué nada, pero tengo los finales en la universidad y no tengo mucho tiempo... ni nada de tiempo. Así que aunque intenté pensar en algún tutorial o receta fácil de hacer que compartir, al final estudiar ganó la batalla. Sin embargo, estaba mirando la ventana y me di cuenta que hay un tutorial que nunca llegué a hacer, así que creo que ha llegado el momento.

I actually made this for Christmas but I liked it so I never took it down. However, since I have that on my window, I never shared it on the blog because I couldn't take any decent photos, since it was against the light.
En realidad hice esto para la Navidad, pero me gustaba así que nunca llegué a quitarlo. Pero como está en la ventana, nunca llegué a compartirlo en el blog porque al estar a contraluz, no conseguía hacerle fotos medio decentes.

I actually for the idea from Agus Yornet (who is pretty much my favorite blogger and one of my main inspirations). This is her original tutorial, and this is what gave me the idea to hang it from the window.
La idea en realidad es de Agus Yornet (que además es básicamente mi bloguera favorita y una gran inspiración para mí). Éste es su tutorial original, y es lo que me dio esto la idea de colgarlo de la ventana.
It is actually super easy to make. All I did was paint some pasta with nail polish, and make some pompoms as shown in my DIY Pompom magnets tutorial.  I then tied everything to a white thread and hang it from my window.
Es súper fácil de hacer. Lo único que hice fue pintar un poco de pasta con pintauñas, y hacer unos pompones como en mi tutorial de Imanes de pompones. Luego, até todo a un hilo blanco y lo colgé de la ventana.

I think it looks pretty cute and as you saw, it's super easy to make, so I hope you liked it!
Yo creo que queda bastante cuqui y es súper fácil de hacer, así que espero que os guste.

Question of the day:

  5. Those curtains definitely are super cute! I wouldn't have wanted to take them down either, haha. I can't say I'm one to actually decorate seasonally or for particular festivities so I don't ever have the dilemma of deciding whether to take them down or not. The curtains look like they suit year-round though so definitely a win! :)
