Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!! We hope that you have a wonderful day with your loved ones!
We love tissue paper crafts – they are cheap, fun and beautiful! What more could you ask for in a craft, right? So today, we have a step-by-step tutorial on how to make some super cute tissue paper pomanders.
- Tissue Paper – We Used the Red/Green/White Assortment Pack
- Floral Wire
- Styrofoam Balls (We Used 6″ for the Red and 4″ for the Green)
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue
Using 7-8 sheets of tissue paper cut a plentiful amount of approximately 5.5” x 6” rectangles. (Based on your preference, you can go smaller or larger, but the smaller you go the harder is it to pull the paper apart.
Fold the rectangle accordion style – about ¾” to 1” thick, then wrap the middle with floral wire. Cut both sides of the paper in the shape of the top of a heart.
Fan out one side and gently pull apart the individual layers of tissue paper. Do the same with the other end. Fluff for desired look. Note: this does take a little bit of practice, so if your first rosette does not turn out perfect, just keep trying!
Cut a piece of ribbon at your desired length. Make a loop and attach it to the Styrofoam ball with hot glue. Flatten one side of your tissue pom pom rosette and apply a generous amount of hot glue. Place on Styrofoam ball. Repeat until the whole ball is covered.
The great thing about this project is that you can personalize this any way you like with the colors, shapes and sizes. Be creative and experiment!
