Pom Pom Party!

Here's a fun adorable craft you can do any day, and use to decorate for a party or just for fun! I thought they were so fun, I tried it for myself! Here's what you'll need:
- 8+ sheets of tissue paper
-Chicken wire, (or thick string will do too)

Step 1: Stack eight 20-by-30-inch sheets of tissue. The more tissue sheets you use the fuller and more CrAZy fun they'll be! (I cut up the tissue paper into different size rectangles to make different size pom poms.) Next, make 1 1/2-inch-wide accordion folds, creasing with each fold.

Step 2: Now fold an 18-inch piece of floral wire (or string) in half, and slip over the center of the folded tissue and twist (or with string tie secure knot). With scissors, trim ends of tissue into rounded or pointy shapes.

Step 3: Separate the layers, pulling away from the center one at a time.

Step 4: Woohooo! Cool huh!? Party time!

For more Pom Pom fun, try layering the tissue paper with different colors! If you want it to be a full 360 degree Pom Pom tie two of these together on the back, and hang them for adorable creations that your friends will goggle over, especially when they hear that you made them! Hope you have fun!
Happy crafting!

Your's truly,
