DIY Tissue Paper Poms Supplies:
- Tissue Paper
- Clear Nylon Thread
To create these poms, you will want about 12-16 layers of tissue paper. First, stack the layers of tissue paper and cut into a square with an imperfect scalloped/wavy edge. You may make whatever size of pom you want depending on this square — keep in mind that the diameter of the pom will be about 1/3 smaller than the length of the square you cut.
Crumple up the layers together. This gives your tissue paper pom a beautiful texture. The more crumpled you make the paper, the softer the pom will look.
Un-crumple the layers and, beginning from the center of one edge of the square, tightly fold the edge toward the second edge in a tight fan fold. See the image above for reference.
Secure the center of the tissue paper tightly with a length of wire.
Gently separate the tissue paper layers, shaping as you go.
Use a length of clear nylon thread to hang the poms as desired.
Use a variety of colors and sizes of DIY tissue paper poms to hang in your room for beautiful, vibrant, inexpensive decor!
