For our Tissue Paper Pom Poms I used sheets that were 45cm by 35cm which came in 5 sheets. For the larger balls you need more say 10 sheets as most of the pom poms that we made were half a sheet in size.

Start off with your sheets of tissue paper – if you have square sheets then skip this first step – and fold a bottom corner up to make a triangle that meets in the centre of the sheet and then repeat from the opposite edge so that you have a half a diamond shape at the bottom of the tissue paper sheets. Cut the slim rectangle off the top and then down the centre line.

Place the two piles of squares of tissue paper on top of each other so you have 10 square sheets of paper and then concertina fold from one edge.

Once you have it folded then fold in half to find the centre of the width and take the string and tie around the centre pulling tight.

Open up one of the half fans and separate the single sheets of tissue paper – take care as they are easy to rip if you aren’t careful with them and fan out. I found that giving a little scrunch to them once all the layers were out added a bit more body to the pom poms.

Once you have one side fluffed out then switch and do the other side of the pom pom. You can cut the square different sized – the smaller the square the less layers of tissue paper need and the bigger the square the more. You could also alternate colours to achieve a different effect.

To hang them we used our room curtain pole. Take a piece of string/cotton and double it place around the centre of the pom pom and thread the lose end through the loop and then tie to the curtain pole – you could also attach them to the celling with low tack tape or pads.
