I love making these. They’re so simple and so cheap but can transform a room or a vase or anywhere really?
I wanted to perk up my moms already super festive Easter table by adding these tissue pom-pom flowers.
To start, you’ll need the following materials:
You will need cotton too, but I didn’t show it here as I was planning on having them as flowers but then decided to hang them instead. The wire will be long enough if you want to use it as a stem though. I picked this wire up from hobbycraft.
If you don’t have wire or cotton you could use string.
Also, you’ll definitely need the multiple ply type of tissues (I used 3 ply) and I used six tissues (18 ply’s) to make each one (except the centre one as I didn’t have enough of them, so I used the remaining three but you can tell it isn’t as bushy).
Start by laying the tissues out opened up and flat one on top of another and then folding concertina style like a fan.
Next you want to secure the centre with the wire or string/cotton.
Cut the edges into a rounded shape so that they look nice and petal like when finished.
Start to peel back each ply of the tissue. This can be assisted by using the point of sharp scissors to tease up the layers. It may save time by doing iall of them this way, so you can then focus on fluffing them all out. It is rather time consuming!
Carry on going until you have done the whole of the first side, then flip it over and do the same on the reverse.
Once finished, I secured string to the wire and hung them from the ceiling with sticky tape.
Happy Easter everyone!
