DIY Hanging Tissue Pom Poms Video Tutorial

Fair warning, these are easy to make but take longer than you might expect…especially when you’re making over 20 of them. BUT, they are a super fun and cheap way to bring the party to your living room. I wanted various colors, shapes and lengths to create depth, but you can really make them however you want!

Supplies:

  • Tissue paper stack cut in half (10 sheets per pom pom)
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors

Instructions:

  1. Place 10 sheets of tissue paper on top of each other. Cut in half. I tried a couple ways of cutting them – in half and 2/3 to 1/3 to create one big and one small. Small ones are hardest to make and the large ones droop too much for my tastes.
  2. Fold like an accordion with 1 /2 inch of space in between – backwards and forwards.
  3. Once completely folded up, cut the edges – you can either round the tips or cut into a V.
  4. Cut a long piece of ribbon and tie one end in a knot around the center of the folded up tissue accordion. This keeps everything in place but also gives you something to hang the pom pom up with.
  5. Pull one side of the accordion open like a fan and lay it flat on the ground.
  6. Carefully unfold and fluff each piece of tissue so it forms a ball.
  7. Once each piece is pulled apart, you can pull pieces towards and away from the string and the other tissue as needed.
