Party Decoration Craft Paper Pom Poms

Last few weeks were really busy. We made a lot of crafts. It is just that there was little time to post. Had been busy crafting and cooking. It was my daughter's birthday. Yay, she is 3 now. Really enjoying the terrific 3, most of the times(I do have my meltdown times and she has hers).
Well, to begin with I thought let me share the craft which is really easy, quick, doable, budget friendly and beautiful at the same time. This paper pom pom craft, when done in a group of 5,6 or more really sets the mood of the party. Be it a birthday party or Valentine's day party or any other party for that matter. Unique, easy and quick Party decorations are so much fun to make.They definitely make the space lively.

Supplies you will need for one pom pom:

-Tissue paper: 6 sheets of one color (20x20)
-Cloth wrapped wire or long wire ties : 1
- Fish line or any transparent thread

Refer the above pictures. You might not need to read the instructions below. I made these in three colors. Was really tied up and had to make these. Could not take pictures of all stages in same color but you will get an idea of what needs to be done.

1.Take the 6 sheets of the tissue paper, align them and cut in the middle.
Now you have 12 sheets of paper.
2.Fold them in about 1 inch or 3/4 inch accordion folds.
3.Tie them in the center as in the picture, using the wire. Make sure you secure
them well.
4.Attach the fish line to the wire. Decide on the length based on how much you need
for the display.
5.Cut the ends of the tissue paper to give a flary effect. You can make it pointed
or scalloped.
6.Now open the sheets one by one in such a way that when all is open you have a full
round or sphere.

Have fun.

Tip: Decide the color based on the theme of your party. For example,shades of Pink for a girl's birthday party.

I chose pink, white and blue for a Princess birthday party for my little girl.(Blue because she wanted, Cindrella's dress. Though I could not get the same shade, you can get one if you plan a little early).

While opening you might try to open one sheet on top and one at bottom and repeating till all the sheets are open.


  1. These look like so much fun. I will have to give it a try. Thanks,
