Whenever I throw a party or get together, tissue paper pom-pom’s are always my go-to decoration. They are easy to create, you can find the materials anywhere and they are really chic and beautiful. When hung from a clear string, these pom-pom’s give the illusion that they are floating midair.
These easy breezy tissue paper pom-pom’s added a beautiful pop of color to my daughter’s room; instantly brightening the space.
Follow these simple steps and you too can create these cheery pom-pom’s for your home or next get together.
Materials you need:
- A package of tissue paper (you can get this wherever gift wrap and greeting cards are sold)
- Floral wire (preferably silver or white cloth)
- Clear monofilament string (i.e. fishing string)
Take your tissue paper and start making 1-1.5 inch accordion folds, making sure to crease each section as you go.
Take the floral wire and slide it around the center of your now tissue paper strip then twist together to hold in place.
Take the scissors and trim the ends of the tissue paper in a rounded or pointed shape.
Take one layer and separate it by pulling toward the center. Repeat this step for each layer of tissue paper on each side. Adjust the layers so that it forms a pom-pom.
Take the clear monofilament string (a.k.a fishing string) and attach to the end of the floral wire. Once completed, your pom-pom is ready to be hung.
