Make these simple tissue pom-poms to dress up a tablescape or hang them from a chandelier for a vibrant look.
- colorful tissue paper
- florist wire
Layer six to 10 sheets of standard-sized tissue paper on a flat surface. Fold width wise in an accordion-fold pattern.
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.
Dress up your space with these simple, relatively quick paper garland decorations.
- Paper, heavy card stock or two sided scrap book paper
- Large paper punch, I used 2” round
- Coordinating thread
- Swing machine
Next decide how close together you want the circles to “hang”. 25 circles, about an inch apart can make around five feet of garland.
- Fabric: about one yard of two different fabrics or a bunch of leftover sewing scraps.
- Something to string flags on (rope, ribbon or cording)
- Pinking shears
- Basic sewing supplies (scissors, thread, sewing machine)
- Large safety pin
Fold your fabric about one foot from the edge. Use pinking shears to cut triangles out of the fold. The amount of triangles you cut will determine the length of your garland.
Make your own rustic looking signs pointing people in the right direction.
- 3 ft pine steaks
- wood stain
- white paint
- Nails or Screws
- Pine Planks or wood made for fencing (Most places will pre-cut the wood for you, just let them know the dimensions you need)
Nail or screw the Pine steaks to the pine planks or fencing.
