entertaining inspiration and design

I know that Tissue Poms have been around for a bit now, but I’ve had a few “just how easy are they?” questions come my way, so I decided to put together a little board with step-by-step photos. Tissue Poms are now sold in packages, via Martha Stewart, or individually in 20 different colors and 3 sizes, via Luna Bazaar – and I’m sure there are other places you can find them. What’s great about these options is they come with the wire you need and pre-cut ends for a perfect look! For under $25 you can add some pops of color to your next party. Step-by-step photos are below:

{DIY} :: Tissue Poms

{Steps} 1. & 2. Accordion fold the tissue paper. | 3. Fold wire around center of folded tissue paper, and create small hook by bending wire. Use this to hang your tissue pom from the ribbon. | 4. Lay tissue pom flat on table. | 5. Take top tissue layer from one side and lift tissue layers away from each other. | 6. Complete side before starting the next.

Check out my “Ready To Pop” Sprinkle where these lovely poms hung over the food table!

    These look fantastic and a lot simpler that some of the other tutorials I’ve seen out there! Do you mind telling me how much tissue you bought and haw many you were able to make with each? I love how soft these look, not so rigid.
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Marissa! Thanks for your note! You need about 10 sheets of tissue paper – for the soft look make sure and round each edge once you’ve folded. Or you can purchase the poms pre-cut from Martha Stewart crafts or Luna Bazaar, takes the guesswork out! Check the post above for links :)
