I ♥ Tissue Pom Poms!
They're so easy to make and SO pretty to hang up! I saw these while I was looking through Pinterest and decided to Google them and learn how to make them. So here's a little tutorial on how I make mine..
You Will Need :
- Some tissue paper (I brought mine from Card Factory, cost my 99p for 10 sheets 50cm x 75cm) (Do not use Gold as one side of the tissue is gold but the other side is a 'dirty cream')
- Pair of scissors (make sure they're sharp)
|As the tissue was too big for the size that I wanted, I cut the tissue in half as you can see above. You want to keep all 10 sheets together! Some people use 8 sheets but I prefer the look with 10 sheets. :)|
|You then want to create folds- like a fan. I made each fold about an inch wide.|
|After you have folded the whole group of tissue, you want to fold it in half to mark the half way point- there's no need to mark it with a pen.|
|You then want to tie a piece of thread at the half way point- I like to knot it around 3 times just to secure it in place!|
|You then want to cut a shape on each end- Mine look a little unsymmetrical but it doesn't really matter as you'll see in the last couple of photos.|
|You want to make sure you gently peel off the right side first and then the left side, don't peel off the tissue on just one side first.|
|After each tissue has been separated, and you've shuffled the tissue around to make it look full, your pom pom should look a little like this!|
