DIY Tissue Paper Pom-Poms


While perusing the Martha Stewart wedding site, I came across these lovely tissue paper pom-poms.  Not only are they easy, but they make a statement, especially when you hang several, like in the picture above.  Below, I've outlined how I did my own.

 What you'll need:  tissue paper, florist wire, scissors...

...8 sheets to be exact

 Fold the sheets accordian style on the longest side...

 Once you're done folding...

...Round the edges...

...Voila

 Snip a bit of wire...

 ...Wrap it around the centre of the folded tissue

 Pull apart each layer...

 ...Until you have a 'bouquet'... then pull apart the other end/side and...

Voila! 
String with fishing line or more wire, pin into ceiling and you're done.

A baby version of the one above, in a darker purple.

This is so funny, I was literally just looking at this tutorial last week! I'm throwing a baby shower for a girl friend and wanted to use these tissue poms. I'm trying to decide if I should buy them or make them. Yours look fabulous! Maybe I'll give it a try.
