  • Scissors

1. Cut 5 pieces of tissue wrapping paper in the shape of a square. Bigger squares mean bigger pom poms. Layer the five pieces over each other so all of the four edges meet.

2. Fold the layers of tissue paper in accordion style.

3. Fold it around 5 times so it looks similar to the above photo.

4. Fold the tissue paper in half. Tie the center with a piece of twin and thread. Snip off any excess string with your scissors.

5. Cut both ends of your folded tissue paper in a curve. This will make the scalloped edges or petals of the pom pom.

6. Slowly and gently, unfurl your pom pom by pulling up one layer at a time towards the center. If you accidentally tear a layer, no worries! The tissue paper is malleable enough to hide any errors you might come across!

And that’s it! If you are planning to make these paper pom poms for your big day, we recommend making them a few days beforehand and storing them in a big container. Take care not to place other objects on top of the paper pom poms because they flatten very easily.
