Paper crafts:  Making Pom-Poms flowers for holiday decorating
Here’s what you’ll need:
  • tissue paper
  • thin beading wire
  • scissors
Here’s what you do:
  1. Cut 6 to 8 small sheets of tissue paper. The width of the sheets should be a little more that the desired diameter of the pom-pom.
  2. Make 1-centimeter accordion folds, taking care to firmly crease each fold.
  3. Cut a piece of wire, about 10 centimeters or longer, depending on what you plan to use the pom-pom for.
  4. Slip the wire over the center of the folded paper and twist together.
  5. Snip each end of the folded paper into a point or a curve.
  6. Peel up and fan out each layer of tissue paper, one at a time.
  7. Arrange the layers to the desired shape.

These are nice and easy if you are making just a small handful of them, but if you have to make a huge bunch for your wedding, you might want to share the load with some friends. Invite them over for a pom-pom-making party. Serve puffy things like profiteroles and doughnut holes and make some pom-poms!”
