Items You Will Need

1. Tissue Paper (the more layers of tissue paper you use, the tighter your pom pom will look.)

2. Scissors

3. Pipe Cleaner


Step One : Accordion Fold

Take about 5 sheets of tissue paper and lay them on top of each other. Fold them together in a back and forth motion. It should look like a fan or accordion when you are finished.

Step 2: Attach Pipe Cleaner

Tie your pipe cleaner to the center of your folded tissue paper. This will be used to hang your pom pom when it is finished.

Step 3: Cut the Tips

Take your scissors and cut the tips of the folded tissue paper in either a circle or triangle shape. This gives the edges of your pom pom a soft look.

Step 4: Separate the Tissue Paper

Gently pull each layer of tissue paper apart. Continue this until all the layers of tissue paper have been separated from each other. Remember, the more layers of tissue paper you use, the tighter the pom pom will appear. The fewer layers you use, the fluffier your pom pom will look. We used 5 sheets of tissue paper for our pom pom.

Ways to Decorate Using Pom Poms

By attaching fishing wire to the pipe cleaner, you can hang your pom poms anywhere. You can also make various sizes and simply set them on a table! By mixing up the size and color of your tissue paper the options for your pom poms are endless!!
