Tissue paper pom poms are such a fabulous decoration for any party. I wanted to write you a tutorial because I don’t want people to look at my blog and think, “That’s great for her.” I want to give you the tools to re-create the elements that are interesting to you. Sure there are other tutorial for this on the web, but you are here. Maybe you haven’t checked it out to understand how achievable this is to accomplish. There is no reason to shell out good money to buy the pre-made ones they sell at the stores. You can do this.
1. Fold your tissue paper in an accordion like style until you reach the end of the paper. I had tissue paper that was 16 1/2 inches x 24 inches. I stacked 6-8 on top of each other.
2. Tie floral wire around the center. I used floral wire, but I image it would work with all sorts of wire or even a twist tie. I remember doing these as a kid, and I think we’d just tie string around the center.
3. Cut your tips. I did rounded edges for my pom poms, but you could also cut a V in the top.
4. Begin to pull your tissue paper carefully up from the edges one piece at a time.
A project like this can look intimidating if you haven’t done this kind of stuff before. I remember making these as a kid though, so I know they are achievable to even the basic crafter (or non-crafter for that matter). I first made them as an adult at Abigail’s Dora party. I never gave you a tutorial though, so I hope this was really helpful.
