Tissue Paper (black & poppy)
Black Linen Thread

1. Cut tissue papers to approximately 3″ X 5″. Create a mix of black and poppy, all black and all poppy pomettes.
2. Stack 6 sheets per pomette (diagram A). Make 1/2” accordion folds with each stack (diagram B). Cut points at both ends of tissue (diagram C).
3. Tie centers with 6” pieces of thread (diagram D). Carefully pull ends of each layer towards knot to fluff up the pomettes.
4. String up one long length of thread where you want your decor to hang and attach tissue pomettes.

    trixie_pixie – you are so welcome! play with different sizes, color combos & cuts to make them really unique. tip: the bigger the pom, the more tissue layers you will need for a nice round pouf!
