Pom Poms

Allison asked if I would put up a tutorial for the pom pom flowers I made to decorate Megans shower. I remember making them when I was a kid, using kleenex and pipe cleaners, These are a bit nicer : ) I found a tutorial for them at Martha Stewart
Basically you accordian fold sheets of tissue paper, wire them in the middle, round the ends with scissors, then seperate the layers and give them a good shake to fluff them up.

I think I may use some of these for Emmie's birthday party.

Hey, I made these from Martha Stewart's site also. I used them to decorate the bandstand for our small town fall-fest. Because the event was outside I worried about tissue paper and the possibility of rain so I made the pom-poms out of plastic table cloth material from the party store. I used a straight edge and rotary cutter on a self-healing mat, a zip tie to cinch the center and rounded off the ends so they looked like giant flowers. Such a cheap and easy decoration, that's big enough to give a lot of flair.
