A Wedding DIY: Poms

One of my bridesmaids gave me this idea to add a little colour to our outdoor wedding. As I began making them, I had a lot of fun and soon a mountain of pompoms had developed! We hung them from tree branches, used them to decorate our getaway mobile, etc.

A fun, inexpensive way to spread your wedding day colours around your ceremony/ reception sites!

Here is the How To:

1. Grab your supplies.

1.cutting mat 2. twine 3.craft paper (if you want to add leaves) 4.assorted tissue paper 5.scissors 6. floral wire

2. To create the tissue paper pom poms:
Accordion fold 7 sheets of tissue paper together with 7 folds, each about 1 inch wide. Find the center of the stack and wrap floral wire around the center to create a divide. Fan out each side of the tissue paper and carefully pull out each layer of paper until you have a ball.

3. Attach the wire from your pompom to the twine and hang.
You can use various sizes of tissue paper, and various lengths of twine to hang each at different levels/ sizes.

Grab some Friends and have fun!
