I don’t know about y’all, but I have major heart eyes when a project that I envision goes off without a hitch and turns out exactly as I pictured in my head. That only ever happens maybe 1% of the time. Ladies and gents, meet my 1%. The tissue paper pom pom turned tissue paper flower! This is the easiest. DIY. ever.
- Tissue paper pom poms of your choice. I already had these on hand, but they were from Hobby Lobby. Follow the instructions included with them to fluff out your poms. Or if you’re feeling really crafty and want to make your own, check out this tutorial. I used it to make two smaller poms to supplement the ones I already had.
- Tissue paper in varying colors for the centers.
- A hot glue gun and extra glue sticks.
- Push pins to hang them with.
Start out by picking tissue paper to create the centers of the flowers with. I decided to layer three different colors, but you could use any amount that you want. (I do think three was the perfect amount, but that’s just me!)
Once they were stacked on top of each other, I cut them into fourths to start off with. I ended up going back and cutting a few pieces into eighths and sixteenths for the smaller poms.
Take one of the cut sections (all three pieces stacked on each other) and crumble the whole thing up into a ball.
Unroll it and then pinch the middle of the section to create kind of a cup.
Twist and scrunch it until you have something that looks like the center of a flower.
Don’t worry if you can’t get it “perfect.” Its not supposed to be!
Grab a pom pom and sort of part some of the fluff so you can see the center where its tied together. Fill the little well in the center with a substantial amount of hot glue.
Press your flower center into the hot glue, being careful not to burn your fingers, and voila! You have a tissue paper flower. Repeat until all of your poms have centers in them.
Get a few push pins to use to hang your freshly made flowers with and add a bit of whimsy to any room.
These are perfect for this corner of Ava’s nursery. They add some textural interest while also camouflaging her video monitor a bit.
I’m so in love with these little beauties. Let me know what you think about them!!
