PAPER POM POMS



While searching for ideas on how to make a teepee, I came across steps on how to make paper pom poms. This seemed like a fun and easy exercise for everyone until we went to the hardware store to get supplies. Our first attempt didn't work because we were using regular printing paper not tissue paper (although the project I found had used the latter). Also, when I doubled the amount of tissue paper used, the pom poms came out a lot fluffier. 

We made the pom poms while listening to Eucalpytus Dreaming by The Elsoms. Occasional dance breaks were required to complete this project.

YOU WILL NEED
Tissue paper
Pencil
Scissors
Stapler
String

HOW-TO
1 Draw a flower shape about the size of your palm with a pencil onto a piece of paper or card - this will be your template.
2 Draw around your template onto a wad of folded tissue paper.
3 Cut out the shape and staple into the centre.
4 Separate each leaf of paper then crinkle and fluff.
5 Tie string around the centre of the pom pom and hang.
