DIY Tissue Paper Pom-Poms


 Tissue Paper

If you want a large quantity of tissue paper in a single color, your best bet is to order it online. 
Most party stores or craft stores only have a mixed pack of colors and don't have many different shades.


Lay eight sheets of tissue paper on top of each other.  
Make your first fold one inch and continue folding an inch at a time in an accordion style. 

TIP: Make your folds on the shorter side, the ball doesn't form as nicely if your folds are done on the longer end of the tissue paper. 

After you are done folding the entire sheet, tie a piece of string in the middle.

With scissors trim the edges of both ends. You can cut the ends into a round shape or cut them into a pointy shape- i prefer the round.

Gently, separate the layers.

Complete the one side and then continue to the other side until a complete ball is formed.

Tie some string through the center and HANG!

You will see the poms debute at Alyssa's (Alyssa) baby shower in the coming weeks.
