How to Make Tissue Paper Pom Poms

Here is a step by step guide on how to make these gorgeous tissue pom poms. You can make them in all different sizes and colours. I bought my tissue paper from the local Reject Shop for $1 a packet. You can also buy the Martha Stewart Pom Poms that are already done for you all you need to do is fluff them up. But once you see how easy they are to make you wont need to buy them!

All you need is tissue paper, scissors and ribbon. I’ve used curling ribbon.

Place 10 sheets of tissue paper on a flat surface.

Fold accordion style, with about 3cm folds. Crease with each fold.

Tie a piece of ribbon/string into the center of the paper.

Trim the ends of the tissue into a pointy shape or round.

Separate layers, pulling away from center one at a time.

This part requires a gentle hand…tissue paper is very delicate and tears easily! Just fluff and puff until you get the look you’re wanting.

I know Dave wont be happy with me for sharing this but he helped me make a few of them for Molly’s party! So if he can do it anyone can!
