DIY Tissue Paper Pom Poms

Don’t Call It a Party Without This DIY

Fitting for a wedding, party, or bridal shower, paper pom poms make for easy, colorful decor. But, since they can often be expensive (usually around $15 a pair on Etsy), why not DIY them? They're fairly simple to make and can be made in the colors and size of your choice. They even make for a fun gift wrapping idea. Learn how following the steps below:


  • Tissue paper (20 inches x 30 inches). Choose one to three colors, or similar shades of the same color, to keep things looking cohesive.
  • Scissors
  • Monofilament
  • Floral wire. White, if you can find it.

Here's how:

  1. Stack four to eight the sheets of paper on top of one another, depending on you puffy you want them to be.
  2. Now, fold the sheets into 1.5-inch accordion folds, all the way across.
  3. Prune the ends of the tissue into round shapes, to give them a petal-like look.
  4. Cut about a foot and a half length of floral wire.
  5. Wrap the wire around the center of the folded tissue and secure it by twisting.
  6. Now the fun part! Pull apart each layer, separating it from the center one piece at a time.
  7. Measure the length you'd like to hang your pom pom from and cut a piece of monofilament accordingly.
  8. Knot the monofilament to the floral wire and hang!
  9. Repeat until you've created all the pom poms you need. The more, the merrier!
