Making Tissue Pom Poms

Pin It!
I can't believe how easy & inexpensive these pom poms are to make--and they can give your party a big impact!
Start with about ten sheets of tissue paper. If you want, you can cut the edges in curved scallops or pointy tips.
Next, fold the tissue paper like a fan. Each fold is almost 2 inches, or each section that you see above is divided into thirds. Secure the center with a wire. MAKE SURE THE WIRE IS  IN THE CENTER!

This is a good time to also attach the ribbon you will be using to hang the pom pom. Starting on one side, gently pull the paper away--a sheet at a time--from the rest. Like this:
Now it's just fluff, fluff, fluff. So easy.  It's also fun to vary the sizes of the balls by just cutting off some of the length of the tissue paper.There are even kits you can buy made by companies like Lilly Pulitzer or Martha Stewart.  I gave these to my friend to use in her baby's room after the shower.
