Pom Poms

Easiest party decoration ever! For any type of party these pom poms are fun, inexpensive and super easy to make. They take less than 10 minutes a piece and can really spice up a room. They are also great to use as gift bows, napkin rings and anything else you can think of! I found this how-to from, where she has a how-to video as well.

You will need 8 to 10 sheets of tissue paper - size can vary depending on how large you are attempting to make them. I used the 20" x 20" for the light pink and 16" x 20 " for the hot pink.  If you are hanging them you will want fishing wire, but if you are using them as napkin rings or for bows you can use pipe cleaners or floral wire.

- Start by stacking the tissue paper. Make 1 to 1-1/2 inch accordion folds, creasing with each fold.

- Take the folded stack by the middle and wrap the fishing wire around it. Make sure you piece is long enough so you can hang form ceiling.

- With scissors, trim ends of tissue paper in round or pointy shapes. I found both to be fun and it was great to have different shapes.

- Separate layers, pulling one piece of tissue paper at a time. Continue to shape as desired!

These added so much at the party and also worked later as bows for a shower gift.
