I was helping a friend brain storm for party decoration ideas the other day and remembered seeing these great tissue paper pom poms on Martha Stewart. I think they are so fun and you can do so much with them.
Tools and Materials
•Tissue paper in desired colors (8 sheets per pom-pom), by Martha Stewart Crafts, available at Michaels
•24-gauge white cloth-covered floral wire
Stack eight 20-by-30-inch sheets of tissue. Make 1 1/2-inch-wide accordion folds, creasing with each fold.
Fold an 18-inch piece of floral wire in half, and slip over center of folded tissue; twist. With scissors, trim ends of tissue into rounded or pointy shapes.
Separate layers, pulling away from center one at a time.
Bend wire into a loop to fit around napkin, and twist end around loop to secure.
You can make any size you want and hang them from the ceiling in clusters. Such a pretty party.
