Tissue Paper Pom Poms

These tissue paper pom poms are a great decoration for both inside and outside the home, and would look great decorating a garden for a summer BBQ. Experiment with size and colour by alternating layers of different coloured tissue paper, and try cutting different shaped patterns at the end of the tissue paper bundles for a slightly different look . . .

How to make

  1. Layer eight or more rectangular sheets on top of each other (for the garland we’ve used a quarter of a tissue paper sheet for each pom).
  2. Concertina fold the tissue paper sheet and trim the ends using pinking shears or paper edgers. Make a small nick or ‘v’ shape in the centre of the concertina strip which will allow each tissue paper layer to be separated easier.
  3. Cut a length of yarn the desired size for your garland and then secure around the centre of each folded tissue paper bundle, making sure to do this evenly along the length of yarn.
  4. Separate the individual layers of the tissue paper making sure to evenly separate the number of tissue paper layers to both the front and back of your pom.

I have always had an almost unstoppable urge to be creative. I know that a lot of card makers and crafters have that same feeling. I used to call it my therapy, but I think it is more than that. I really ‘need’ to draw, paint, sew, arrange flowers and, of course, make cards. I have been incredibly fortunate to turn this ‘urge’ into a career.
