How to Make Tissue Pom-Poms

Make these simple tissue pom-poms to dress up a spring tablescape or hang them from a chandelier for a vibrant look.

Marian Parsons, Miss Mustard Seed

Materials Needed:

  • colorful tissue paper
  • scissors
  • florist wire
  • ribbon

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.

Cut Ends

Use sharp scissors to cut both ends of the folded tissue paper into a point.

Secure Center

Bind the center of the tissue with florist wire. Tie a ribbon onto the wire so the finished pom-pom can be suspended.

Fluff Tissue

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.
