DIY Tissue Pom Poms

We all love simple easy diy projects that add major impact to a party... here's a great tutorial by martha stewart. you could use any color..go with any size.. and make a beautiful custom detail for your party!


How to Make the Pom-Poms


You'll need tissue paper and 24-gauge white cloth-covered floral wire.



Hanging Pom-Poms
1. Stack eight 20-by-30-inch sheets of tissue. Make 1 1/2-inchwide accordion folds, creasing with each fold.

2. Fold an 18-inch piece of floral wire in half, and slip over center of folded tissue; twist. With scissors, trim ends of tissue into rounded or pointy shapes.
3. Separate layers, pulling away from center one at a time.
4. Tie a length of monofilament to floral wire for hanging.

Here's some great examples of how to use this diy idea!

  9. Does this make a full pom pom or only one side?
    Also if u want smaller pom poms do u just cut the tissue paper in 1/2 or 1/4s?

    Thanks for the tips!

  12. A one real useful piece of home or body ornament. I could probably use this one to customize and design some of my school stuff just to make it look more fun.

  13. Wow! What a bright idea you got! Just in time for me to design my little Shontelle's 5th party. I think the design you've provided will be of big help to me upon preparing for my daughter's incoming birthday party. And I was really freaking out cause I'm just so confused on what to put on top first and whatsoever stuff.
