For my friend’s Tea Party Bridal Shower, we wanted to keep the decorations easy-to-make and inexpensive, but to give us a nice little punch of colour. After seeing so many inspirational photos of tissue paper pom poms on Pinterest, I decided to give them a try myself.
Each one only took a couple of minutes and turned out great, and added a little fun and whimsy to the day. We got 2 large pom poms and 1 small one out of each $1 package of tissue paper from the dollar store.
What you’ll need:
- Colourful Tissue Paper (8-10 sheets per pom pom)
- Florist Wire
- Fishing Line or Invisible Thread (from hanging)
I found that creasing each fold made for the best pom poms.
If you cut a bit extra off, you can make a handy little loop on the top. This will make it much easier to hanging up later on.
When you get to the last layer, you should still have this flat part in the middle of the top layer, with your wire loop.
This is a great way to add some fun and whimsy to your next party. Have fun and play around with different colours or even sizes! Try making a half size one, or even really tiny ones as garland or cupcake toppers!
