My twins 4th birthday party is this weekend. We are having their party at our house which seemed like a good idea. Now I am realizing how much work it’s going to be. What was I thinking? The kids love rainbows so we are going with a rainbow theme. I decided to make some of my own rainbow decor to try and save some money.
Martha Stewart has a great tutorial for making pom pom balls using tissue paper. I am not going to try and outdo Martha, but she did provide some great inspiration.
You will need:
- Tissue paper in various colors
- Floral wire or twist ties
- Fishing line or clear or white thread for hanging
When you are done, you should have something that looks like this.
Then you want to fan it open and start pulling the tissue paper up layer by layer. Make sure you pull it in different directions – some going up and some going down so you get a nice full pom pom.
