Secure Center

Bind the center of the tissue with florist wire. Tie a ribbon onto the wire so the finished pom-pom can be suspended.

Fluff Tissue

Gently pull apart layers of tissue and fluff them to form a sphere. Alternate between pink, lime green and white tissue to create a striped effect or choose paper in varying shades of the same color for a floral effect.

When you're done with your DIY Poms, try hanging them, or creating a floral like center piece.  There are so many ways to use these Poms so get creative!
