Tissue Paper Pom-poms
Today is my husbands 27th birthday, also his Golden Birthday. My husband is not the type who likes a lot of attention (kinda of odd considering his career choice) but I decided to throw him a party anyways. I kept it small, only our parents, siblings and his grandparents. Even with only 10 people expected he is a little stressed out and I can’t help but feel guilty. I am living my golden birthday though him, as I was only 9 when I had mine and my mom wasn’t big on parties. Hopefully he forgives me and has a great day with the ones who love him most.
I am still getting ready, but here is one decoration I put together with the help of Martha Stewart. I browsed through Martha Stewart’s Encyclopedia of Crafts and decided to make these fun Tissue Pom-Poms. I will post more photos from the party and other projects next week.
What you need:
- Tissue paper any color you want
- Pipe Cleaner or floral wire
- Thread or fishing string
First stack 5-8 tissue papers on top of each other and line them up as best possible. I numbered the photo above with the amount of tissues I used on each pom. More tissues makes a fuller pom.
Secure folded tissue with a pipe cleaner or floral wire. String fishing line or thread through the wire and tie to make a medium loop.
Trim the edged of the tissue to a point or rounded.
Gently separate each sheet of paper to form a ball. Use other string to hang pom from ceiling.
I also made some smaller poms by cutting my original sheets of tissue in half and following the above steps. I really like the small ones because they are fuller poms. They also change up the look.
Stay tuned for more golden birthday party crafts!
