Tutorial: Tissue Pom-poms {DIY inspiration}

If you've recently been to a wedding, bridal shower, or any type of celebration for that matter, you've probably seen some adorable, colorful fluffy puffs of paper dangling around. These charming decorations are the ever trending paper pom poms. I LOVE paper pom poms, they bring such a joyous element to any event and they're such a simple item that anyone can make at home. I saw this tutorial on HGTV and thought I'd share it with you creative minds! So fun and simple... enjoy!

Fold Tissue Paper

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.

  2. When the dress arrived, I was so amazed on how pretty it was. I did have to iron it when I received it, but that was to be expected for about any online clothing purchase.
