We just had a baby shower for one of my friends and I was put in charge of the decorating. After much contemplation on what to do, I came across tissue pom poms and thought this is waaaayyyy better than streamers!
Materials you will need:
- Lots of tissue paper 20×20
- A decent pair of scissors
- Floral wire
- Fishing line or ribbon to hang the pom poms
for a large pom-pom layer 12 20×20 sheets and start to fold accordion style. For a smaller pom-pom just cute the tissue paper down. When folding, fold in 1 inch folds.
Next on each end your going to round the edges. In the middle of the tissue paper tie floral wire and add your fishing line .
I forgot to mention … depending on how many you’re doing, expect a mess. You will have scraps of tissue paper everywhere Now start with one side and grab one piece of tissue paper at a time and start fluffing. After that sides done go to the other. Now you have a pom-pom, tinkle with it until its nice and fluffy. Warning: your first one may not come out so pretty (at least mine didn’t) so go to the next one, each one will look better and better.
The cool thing about pom poms is you can use them for so many things. Home decorations, parties, showers, wedding etc. Be kreative , here are some pics from the baby shower:
