Tissue Pom Poms

For Serina's slumber party, I'm making tissue pom pom's to decorate. I think they make any party look elegant and beautiful. She is going to love how her little party is going to look! They are easy to make and to be able to add a home-made touch of decor is always special. Martha Stewart's easy instructions, are what I would recommend to follow, to get the best results.
Tools and Material:
  • Tissue paper in desired colors (8 sheets per pom-pom), by Martha Stewart Crafts, available at Michaels
  • 24-gauge white cloth-covered floral wire
  • Scissors
  • Monofilament
Step 1

Stack eight 20-by-30-inch sheets of tissue. Make 1 1/2-inch-wide accordion folds, creasing with each fold.

Step 2

Fold an 18-inch piece of floral wire in half, and slip over center of folded tissue; twist. With scissors, trim ends of tissue into rounded or pointy shapes.

Step 3

Separate layers, pulling away from center one at a time.

Step 4

Bend wire into a loop to fit around napkin, and twist end around loop to secure.
