How To Make a Tissue Paper Pom Pom
- Grab a few paper tissues.
- Fold each of them like you’d be making a fan, or a paper accordion.
- Stash the folded ‘accordions’ and bind them together in the center. You can use any type of thread or twine. I used some white DIY twisted cord I had made the other day. (It’s so easy to make!)
- Then fluff out the pom pom, separating the layers of tissue paper, slowly and steadily.
This should get you a nice soft and fluffy decoration to hang and make your home pretty. You can use them as party decor, too! Throwing a barbecue party, a tea garden party? You’ve guessed it: perfect for that, too.
It was a while ago I made pom poms, and I took a picture of this one in the nursery when my first child was still a baby. At first I hung it and admired the ‘masterpiece’ (that’s when the photo was taken). So fluffy and soft in the hands, I had to give it to our then toddler to try it out. You can imagine the rest.
The kid kept playing, tossing it everywhere, throwing and whirling it in the air, trying to get bits and pieces apart, carefully examining the bits of tissue between his thumb and index finger, licking one and then squeamishly fighting a wet piece to get it off his tongue.
