Supplies you’ll need:
- 10 Sheets of tissue paper- preferably 20×26 inches
- 10 inch piece of floral wire
- Needle Nose pliers
*instructions for Large Pom
Set stack of tissue paper facing away from you lengthwise
Begin folding stack of paper accordion style.
Each fold should be about 1 inch
Press firmly along each fold
Continue the accordion folding for the entire length
Once accordion folding is complete, hold the stack of paper taught at the center
Using the floral wire, tie the stack together as tightly as you can.
Use needle nose pliers to finish the the tie, alleviating any sharp edges
Cut each end to desired shape. Round, pointed etc.
Begin fluffing each layer of tissue
Pull layers up and toward the center, where the floral wire was tied
Continue fluffing layers of tissue
Once half of the paper has been fluffed, flip the pom over so the fluffed side is gently resting on a flat surface.
Again, bring each layer of tissue up and toward the center
Once all layers have been fluffed, you are ready to hang your pom.
Stay tuned as I’ll be adding a sizing chart to help with making Large, Medium and Small sized poms.
