DIY Tutorial: How to Fluff Paper Pom Poms

DIY Tutorial: How to Fluff Paper Pom Poms

Tissue paper pom poms give a room a perfect pop of color! They also come flat and require some simple 'assembly.' Here's how you do it:
  1. Unfold the tissue paper so the stack of paper is flat and on a hard surface.
  2. Starting at one of the short sides of the rectangular stack of paper, begin making accordion folds* about 1" thick (*accordion folds looks like pleats).
  3. After folding the entire length of tissue, secure the middle of the pom using a tie or piece of string.
  4. Fan out the sides of the pom, then pull apart each layer of tissue to create a round shape. Try to pull from the base (near the place you tied the pom) to achieve maximum poofiness.
  5. One you've got the shape you like, hang your poms from the ceiling (tie a long piece of string, cord, or ribbon around the middle of the pom), attach them to the wall, lay them on a table, or scatter them on the floor. Pom poms look especially good when they're in groups with varied sizes and colors.
