If you head over to the fabulous real wedding Oh So Pretty……part 2 on RMW you would have noticed Anna’s spectacular D.I.Y decor – namley a whole heap of tissue paper pom-poms.
So if you are wondering how you too can add some pom pom cool to your Big Day then you’ve certainly come to the right place – I’m going to post courtesy of Martha Stewart, how you can Do It Yourself.
( Yes yes I know I clearly worship at the feet of Martha, I’m not ashamed to admit it either – she is officially my number one icon)
What you will need:
Tissue paper (in ANY fabulous colours you like) and 24-gauge white cloth-covered floral wire.
Hanging Pom-Poms – How to:
1. Stack eight 20-by-30-inch sheets of tissue. Make 1 1/2-inch wide accordion folds, creasing with each fold.
2. Fold an 18-inch piece of floral wire in half, and slip over center of folded tissue; twist.
With scissors, trim ends of tissue into rounded or pointy shapes.
3. Separate layers, pulling away from center one at a time.
4. Tie a length of monofilament to floral wire for hanging.
And who says you just have to have these beauties hanging from the ceiling at a wedding?
Adorn your vintage vehicle, wrap around a napkin or create a white winter wonderland for a rehearsal dinner or Christmas soiree.
Happy D.I.Y folks
