I’m so glad to be here for the first decorating tutorial on A Pretty Idea. I was looking for something pretty, easy and affordable and I found the perfect project with this tissue paper pom pom.
This is a “minimum effort, maximum effect” decorating project. It is so pretty and poetic… perfect for a birthday party, a wedding or just decorating your home.
I have one just above my dining room table and I love how it dances with the wind. This is also a s way to delimit spaces between the dining room and the living room.
For this project you’ll need :
– tissue paper (about 8 to 12 sheets)
– thread (I used fishing thread)
– a ruler
This is how I did it:
1 – Line up the edges of the tissue paper sheets and, on the short side, start folding in accordion until all the tissue paper is folded
2 – Tie the middle of the paper with thread
3- Trim the edges (you can try different shapes from round to pointy)
4 – Unfold your accordion
5 – Pull each layer of paper, one at a time
Hang your pom pom up !
