Tissue Paper Pom Pom Tutorial

These are so easy and so cute. I love making them for parties because everyone always comments on them and thinks you spent all day decorating. So i thought i would share a tutorial on how i make them.
What you will need:
tissue paper (6-10 sheets for each one)
wire or little girls elastics or twist ties
string or ribbon

1. lay 10 sheets of tissue paper out, i buy it the packs of 10 sheets from walmart

2. Fold it like a fan with 1 inch folds, go back and forth all the way to the end.

3. Use wire or 2 little girls clear elastics and wrap it around the middle. If you use the elastics just stretch them over and use 2 to make it stronger.

4. Tie your ribbon or string in the middle before you fluff them. I sometimes use dental floss or white thread so you can't see the string when you hang them.

5. Round the edges by cutting semi circle on the end, this is optional but if you want to do it this is where you would have to do it.

6. Separate each piece of tissue, bring the first one as close to the middle as you can.

7. Continue separating them all so they look like this.

8. And when your all done it will end up like this.

Little Pom Poms
1. start with 6 sheets of tissue paper

2. Fold them like a fan with 1 inch folds.

3. Tie your wire 1/4 of the way in at each end.

So it looks like this. Before you cut it in half.

4. Then cut down the middle so you have 2 pom poms to seperate.

5. Round the edges.

7. And separate.

And there you have it!!!
