DIY Pom Pom Heart Shirt

I kind of have a thing for pom poms. They are inexpensive and can make almost anything cute. A couple of weeks ago, I made this pom pom heart wreath for our front door. That project inspired me to make some Valentine’s Day shirts for my girls. I wanted to make something simple and cute that they could wear for pictures. It was such an easy project, I had to share it with you!

    I added some polka dots in the middle of the hearts, too. If you’re not so sure about sewing, you could try to glue the pom poms on with fabric glue.

    Now I just need to put these on my girls and get their photos taken!
