TISSUE PAPER POM POMS
How fun and easy are these tissue paper pom poms, I’ve been making these for years. I think I originally saw them on a Martha Stewart show or in the magazine. I started getting her magazines in 1995 and just stopped my subscription last year as I usually just go online now. I think that comment just dated me. As a reference, here is a link to the website that shows how to make them http://www.marthastewart.com/265163/pom-poms-and-luminarias-how-to These are so easy that the 6 and 8-year-old were making them with adult help. The hard part is finding inexpensive tissue paper in the colors you want.
Ribbon for tying center and hanging
Scissors for cutting ends (if desired)
When you make your stack of 20 tissue paper you can adjust the size of the pom pom by adjusting the width. My tissue was purchased at the Dollarama and I just cut the stack in half to make the pom pom and counted out 15 sheets for mine. That way one package made 4 pom poms. I cut ribbon in 48 inch sections in coordinating colors to tie these
Nice to have and extra set of hands.
