Martha Stewart Pom Poms

Martha Stewart calls them Pom Poms, but I call them Poofs. Tomato… Tomahto… Either way I love them to death and cannot get enough of them. They are absolutely amazing in every color. For my purposes, however, I did them in shades of pink and they turned out fabulous!

Of course this was another wedding project that we used in many different areas. I made at least 50 of these puppies and hung them in the backyard for the Cowboy Chic themed Couples Shower, then my mother-in-law used them as decor at the rehearsal dinner and then my grandmother used them to decorate a sign she had made for us that said congratulations as people left the church. I definitely got my money’s worth out of these suckers and they were worth every penny.

Supplies

  • Tissue paper
  • Floral wire or pipe cleaners
  • Scissors

Directions

  1. Stack eight 20-by-30-inch sheets of tissue and make 1 ½-inch-wide accordion folds.
  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. Attach string for hanging.
