Gimme A…

While I love the idea of “do it yourself” projects, the thought of actually doing them for my own wedding is a little scary. Regardless of whether or not I use these pom poms, are they not adorable?

I haven’t tried to make one  yet, but they look pretty easy, and the best part? You can make them any color tissue paper comes in! Gotta love Martha Stewart.

How to Make the Pom-Poms
You’ll need tissue paper and 24-gauge white cloth-covered floral wire.

Hanging Pom-Poms

1. Stack eight 20-by-30-inch sheets of tissue. Make 1 1/2-inchwide accordion folds, creasing with each fold.

2. 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.

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

4. Tie a length of monofilament to floral wire for hanging.
