How to Make Tissue Pom-Poms
These tissue paper pom poms are inexpensive, but look impressive when hanging in groups from chandeliers or the ceiling.
- colorful tissue paper
- florist wire
Fold Tissue Paper
Layer six to 10 sheets of standard-sized tissue paper on a flat surface. Fold width wise in an accordion-fold pattern.
Use sharp scissors to cut both ends of the folded tissue paper into a point.
Bind the center of the tissue with florist wire. Tie a ribbon onto the wire so the finished pom-pom can be suspended.
Gently pull apart layers of tissue and fluff them to form a sphere. Alternate between pink, lime green and white tissue to create a striped effect or choose paper in varying shades of the same color for a floral effect.
