DIY Tissue Paper Pom-Poms

While perusing the Martha Stewart wedding site, I came across these lovely tissue paper pom-poms.  Not only are they easy, but they make a statement, especially when you hang several, like in the picture above.  Below, I’ve outlined how I did my own.

 What you’ll need:  tissue paper, florist wire, scissors…

…8 sheets to be exact

 Fold the sheets accordian style on the longest side…

 Once you’re done folding…

…Round the edges…

…Voila

 Snip a bit of wire…

 …Wrap it around the centre of the folded tissue

 Pull apart each layer…

 …Until you have a ‘bouquet’… then pull apart the other end/side and…

Voila! 

String with fishing line or more wire, pin into ceiling and you’re done.
