I love throwing parties!! Like Seriously LOVE! A couple weeks ago I threw my older sister’s baby shower and just this last week I had a Sugar Bowl Party. Its so much fun planning the activities and decorations and getting everyone together!
Today we are just going to focus on the decorations.
For both parties I made floating Tissue Paper Pom Poms.
These are super easy to make and add a lot to the atmosphere!
This is how I do them:
8 sheets of Tissue Paper
White Thread (you can use ribbon, but thread give the floating illusion)
1. make sure your tissue paper is the same size. Depending on the size on Pom Poms you want, you may want to cut the sheets of tissue paper. If I want smaller pom poms, I usually cut them in half and then in half again. So out of 8 sheets of regular sized Tissue, you get 4 pom poms. (I like this size best) If you want big ones just keep them the normal size.
3. Cut a long piece of tread and tie it around the center of the folded Tissue.
4. When your ready to hang them, carefully separate each layer of tissue. Make sure the thread stays in place.
5. Hang from the ceiling with a small piece of tape.
These Pom Poms were super easy to make and really cheap! I spent .88 on a pack of 20 sheets of tissue on sale at Target and I already had thread. I used about 4 packs for my sisters shower (the venue was kinda big) and I only used 8 sheets of tissue for the Sugar Bowl Party.
I will post more on decorations later this week!
