Let’s gets started with this easy tissue paper pom poms tutorial!
How to make small tissue paper pom poms:
My full sheet of tissue paper measured 20″ x 26″ so when I cut a sheet in half, it measures 10″ x 26″. You can cut the ends to be a point or rounded and they create a little different look for the pom poms. I like to experiment with both to get different looking pom poms to use.
With this size sheet (cutting in half) your pom poms will be 8″ in diameter.
Tips for DIY Tissue Paper Pom Poms:
If you use a full sheet, the pom poms will be 15-16″ across. I made one but it was huge. Just keep that in mind.
If you are doing the large pom pom, I’d use 16 sheets of one color.
Instead of fishing line you can use ribbon.
These are a lot of fun to make. Initially you may rip the tissue paper but don’t worry! It will usually fluff just fine and not show up at all.
Supplies you need for tissue paper pom poms:
- Tissue Paper
- Twist Tie or Floral Wire
- Fishing Line
How to make tissue paper pom poms:
Stack 4 sheets of the same color tissue paper together. Fold in half lengthwise and cut in half on the folded line. Stack the 8 sheets of tissue paper together.
Begin to accordion fold the tissue paper. An accordion fold is like folding a paper fan.
Starting at the short end, fold the paper so it’s about 1″ wide. Flip it over and fold it again.
Repeat, folding, flipping, folding until you have the entire sheet folded.
Wrap a twist tie around the center and twist tightly. If you hang the pom poms, cut a piece of fishing line and thread it through the twist tie. Knot the end.
You’ll want to do this before you being to fluff the ball as it’s almost impossible to get to the center!
Use scissors to trim the end into a point or round shape.
Begin by unfolding the paper. Starting on one side, lift the paper up and away from the others, Continue this procedure to “fluff” the paper pom poms.
Repeat on the other side until you have a completed tissue paper pom pom!
Find your fishing line and hang your pom pom! It is that simple.
