Take at least 7 pieces of tissue paper (I used 9) and fold accordion style, tie a piece of florist wire around the center (I didn't have any so used a ribbon...I think wire would be better!)
Cut tissue on each end in a point or round (I did the point and definitely needed sharper scissors!)
Fan out one end and begin to pull each piece of tissue out toward you...I recommend alternating pulling one piece toward you, one piece in the other direction...I realized this on the second section! :(
I took a piece of ribbon and folded it in half, looped it around the center of the pom-pom and tied a knot.
A few tips I learned:
- Use thicker tissue paper...not cheap tissue paper from Dollar Tree like I did!
- Alternate the way you pull out each section, one toward you, one away from you
- Don't pull to hard or you'll rip the paper-like I did!
