We got burnt out on pom-poms a couple of years ago. After a winter of pom-pom forests growing from the ceilings of every party we threw, they disappeared from our party decor. I hadn't even really noticed until Allison showed up with this fringed pom-pom DIY. The shape and the ombre color scheme is fresh and getting us all back in the mood for pom-poms.
Lots of tissue paper in your colors of choice (we used whites, yellows, greens, and golds)
Thin floral wire
Stack your tissue paper in the order you want your colors to go. The more sheets you use, the fuller your pom-pom will be, but it will also be more difficult to separate. I used around 16-18 whole sheets for this large pom-pom. Fold your paper accordian-style in sections about 2" wide.
