Floral Pom-Poms

This is a super easy tutorial on how to make beautiful tissue paper flowers. I made a whole bunch a year or so, and they turned out great. Wouldn't they be gorgeous at a bridal shower?

Tools and Materials

Tissue paper
24-gauge white cloth-covered floral wire

Hanging Pom-Poms How-To

1. Stack eight 20-by-30-inch sheets of tissue. Make 1 1/2-inchwide accordion folds, creasing with each fold.
2. Fold an 18-inch piece of floral wire in half, and slip over center of folded tissue; twist. With scissors, trim ends of tissue into rounded or pointy shapes.
3. Separate layers, pulling away from center one at a time.
4. Tie a length of monofilament [found here] to floral wire for hanging.

It's very simple, and super fun. Great for a rainy day craft with some gal pals.
