DIY Decor: Tissue Paper Pom Poms

If you’re looking for a pop of color for your next party’s centerpiece or to hang from above, this is a must try for you!

These are amazing when used as homemade wedding or shower decor. Here’s a picture of tissue paper pom poms at a baby’s christening amongst the dessert table. Adorable!

What you need:
Tissue Paper
Floral Wire

The trick with this craft is to pay attention to the length of the tissue paper and the size of the fold. The smaller the fold, the more you will get, and in turn, the more frills you will yield on your final product. The length of the tissue paper will also determine how big your tissue paper flower will be.

Once you’ve folded your tissue paper like an accordian, aka flipping it over after every fold, you must cut the indentations where you will be putting the floral wire.


Once you’ve attached the floral wire comes the fun part. Pull back the layers of the tissue paper to create gorgeous flowers!

Simply finish the look with ribbon or fishing wire and hang the tissue paper pom poms from the ceiling or a fan/light fixture. Here’s a great online step-by-step tutorial that I stumbled upon while doing research for different ideas.

If you want to go a little deeper with this project, this pin has it all for you. The key to different flowers is the way you cut the tissue paper after it’s been folded. Leave it to Ms. Stewart to give us this great pictorial!
