Puffs of Color

I'm definitely smitten with these pom poms! The ones shown here are from Martha, who else really?? They are the perfect puffs of color that add a touch of whimsy to a party. I'm starting to plan my son's 1st birthday and looking for new and fun decorating ideas. These definitely make the cut! Directions from Martha Stewart's site can be found below. Happy crafting!

How to Make Tissue Paper Pom Poms:

Step 1: Stack eight 20x30" sheets of tissue. Make 1.5" wide accordion folds, creasing with each fold.

Step 2: Fold an 18 inch piece of floral wire in half, and slip over center of folded tissue paper; twist. With scissors, trim ends of tissue into pointy or rounded shapes.

Step 3: Separate layers, pulling away from center one at a time.

Step 4: to use as a napkin ring - bend wire into a loop to fit around a napkin, and twist end to secure
