DIY: Vibrant Party Tissue Poms

Tissue Pom Decorating Inspiration!

Here’s an easy, DIY idea for your next get-together: Tissue Poms! These are not only easy to make, but they’re super cute and very customizable for your next event. Consider the tissue paper colors and patterns available today! I love the idea of these hanging in clusters with paper lanterns over tables, under trees full of twinkle lights, through doorways or from chandeliers, swinging above a dance floor, covering a table as a quick centerpiece, or decorating a candy bar to add color and flare. Poms can be used as napkin rings, on top of favor boxes or fluffed as mini flowers for a modern arrangement. Consider the possibilities! Find a quick How-To and more great inspiration after the jump!

Martha Stewart Wedding features an easy, DIY article on how to re-create these beautiful poms:

Tissue Pom How-To

{Martha Stewart’s Tissue Poms}

Tissue paper and 24-gauge white cloth-covered floral wire

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

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.

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

4. Tie a length of monofilament (or fishing line) to floral wire for hanging.

    Thank you for this post!! Of course, mine don’t look QUITE as pretty, but they are really easy to make! I used yarn instead of wire… maybe that’s the problem, but they are still turning out to look somewhat like yours.
