i made a TON of these for my wedding and i made smaller ones to go in my bouquet, as corsages for the moms, and as flowers for pomanders and the flower girl ball. this is the tutorial i used and basically the only one i found at martha stewart’s page.they are super versatile in the different sizes.

i did all of the folding and cutting of the edges in advance and then puffed them out the week before the wedding since they take up some space and i had made around 45 of them. i did a few test ones first and they are super easy. it’s a bit tedious with all of the accordion folding and cutting. i got the tissue paper cheap online at retailpackaging.com. you really just need scissors, some wire and the paper.

enjoy!

I just had to respond because I told my FH I wanted to make these and he responded “they look like a shower poof, are you gonna scrub yourself” Oh the joys of wedding planning with the boy…

They are super easy to make!  But they do take forever!  I second the martha stewart how to, search the site, it’s super easy!

Here is a tip though:  the more pieces of tissue paper used in the poms the FULLER it will look, If you use too few they look sparce.  And when you puff them out be gentle, I ripped quite a few when I did it for a fundraiser!

These poms are really easy, but super time comsuming.  I currently create and sell on Etsy.  I encourage those of you who have lots and lots of time to make them yoursself, however if you want to purchase them folded and cut in advance please visit http://www.etsy.com/shop/Pomflair
