DIY Tissue Paper Pom Poms

So many brides or party hostesses look for inexpensive ways to brighten up the decor for that special day. Paper lanterns now have some competition with these beautiful yet delicate tissue paper pom poms. Martha Stewart makes a diy kit that you can find at your local Michaels craft store if you have one near by but why bother when you just need a few simple items to make these adorable floating eye candies. All you really need to purchase if you already don't have on hand is tissue paper (duh!), floral wire, monofilament, and some scissors. Follow the step by step instructions found here and get ready to ooh and aah everyone at your next soiree!

I'm glad you like them Cathie. You should go to www.etsy.com and type in tissue paper pompoms and see the stuff that comes up!....so beautiful! I spent a long time looking at them lol! Don't forget to check out my store as well if you are on Etsy (www.thelemondroptree.etsy.com). I hope your party goes well and these turn out nice for you! Oh by the way you can cut the tips in different ways to get different looks...ie curved vs. a v cut for pointy look.
