DIY with the Fab Miss B: Tissue Poms

I made a whole slew of tissue paper pom poms for our Sweet & Salty party, and they were a cinch to make! Here's a little how to so you can make some for your next party!

You will need: tissue paper, hole punch, wire, and wire cutters.

Take 4-8 pieces of tissue paper and accordion fold them, at least 7 times.

Make a hole punch in the center of the folds.

Thread a piece of wire through the hole.

Twist it closed.

And twist the wire into a loop.

Now, shape the petals with scissors.

For this one, I did scallops, but triangles look cool too.

Fan out the accordion folds.

Then gently pull up the tissue layers one by one.

Soon you'll have a lovely collection of flowers to string on a garland.

Quite festive, don't you think? What's your favorite party decoration?
