TISSUE POM-POM TUTORIAL

Tissue Pom-Poms make a party
or event so festive!
They can be made in so many 
different sizes and colors and look so fun
hanging in trees
or from the rafters

 
 on ribbon
 or invisible fishing line
 You can even use a hole punch
 on the ends
 and make it look like eyelet lace
Have you ever wondered how
the tissue Pom-Poms are made?

 Well ....
 
 here's how:

You'll need tissue paper 
and 24-gauge white cloth-covered floral wire
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.
Here's where you can punch 
the ends to look like eyelet or 
cut the ends shorter to make
smaller pom-poms.
3. Separate layers, pulling away 
from center one at a time.
4. Tie a length of 
monofilament (fishing line)
or ribbon
 to floral wire for hanging.

 That's it! It's that easy

Have fun folding and poufing!

There are fresh flowers in the market, but those are really costly once you ask the price. But Florists NJ, the online flower shops have fresh flowers in very cheap rate.
