A festive tutorial for you all now! These tissue-paper pom poms would make great decorations for any party or event you're throwing - or even just a nice adornment to a room in your house. But what better time of year to get decoration-happy than in the run up to Christmas? This DIY tutorial is from the kidspot.com.au website and was found on the lovely Happy Home blog. Let's get started...
Tissue paper / Thin string or cotton / Thicker string for stringing together / Large needle / Scissors
Tie the middle with a short piece of string.
Round the edges with a pair of scissors.
Fan open one side and gently pull apart each individual sheet of tissue paper until they're evenly spaced. Be very careful here as they do tear easily and can be quite tricky to separate.
Repeat on the other side and fluff out until the pom pom looks even and round. Thread together with the needle and thick string - leaving your desired length in-between - and wrap around the tree.
