Tissue paper pom poms have been popping everywhere in party and room decor and are a great way to add color to a room. Why buy these lovely pom poms premade when you can easily make these in your own home and are more economical!

Supplies Needed

24-gauge white cloth-covered floral wire.

8 sheets of tissue paper (this will make one tissue paper pom pom)

ruler

scissors

pencil

ribbon or clear thread for hanging pom pom


Directions

1. Stack eight 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 ribbon or clear thread to floral wire for hanging.

We used to make these when we were kids ... also tissue paper flowers. I am going to make pom poms for my daughter's graduation party in June.

I know what you mean, Kim! The first time I made these I ripped the pieces but the next time I was smart and gently pulled the layers apart.
Have a great day, Kim! :)
