Has anyone tried working with these things? Do they work and/or look as nice in person?? We’re getting married outdoors and I thought they may be fun to hang from tree branches for a little extra color, but I’m not 100% sold yet. Thoughts?

I tried making some for my daughter’s first birthday party – but I didn’t go and buy the actual kit. I watched a video on youtube and then went out and bought the tissue paper in my colors and made them for myself. I liked them, but wasn’t as crazy about the ones I made as I had been about the other ones that I had seen…I wonder if I had bought the actual Martha Stewart Kit, maybe I would have had better luck. I hope others respond with their thoughts too, because I’d like to use them too, if other’s can give some helpful tips!
Best of luck!

Oh @happy… I’m very impressed that actually made tissues globes/balls! I am not crafty, unfortunately, so I’d have to buy and string as Martha instructed. I just don’t know if hanging them outdoors from tree branches would work very well… I keep picturing a big wind blowing through half-way through the ceremony – yikes! *LOL*

I made the tissue paper balls to hang above my babies crib (instead of getting a mobile). I found that the bigger I made them the less I liked them. The larger you make them the less “full” they are. The tissue paper pomanders (where you make the individual flowers and insert them into a styrofoam ball) are MUCH nicer!

It’s suggested to use 8 sheets. If you are going to use them to make bigger ones, I suggest that you use more sheets.
Also, you can but bulk tissue paper online (like 100-500 sheets). Having them hanging from the trees will be really nice – like the paper lanterns, but colorful.
