DIY Party or Wedding Decoration - Tissue Flower Pom Pom Vines

I found this stunning tutorial on oncewed and had to share... for those who love Martha Stewart's Tissue Pom Poms  you will LOVE this simple take on this classic party decoration that will delight your guests and suit all occasions from casual tea parties to weddings, christenings, birthdays and beyond....




1. cutting mat, 2. twine, 3. craft paper, 4. assorted tissue paper, 5. scissors, 6. floral wire


To create the tissue paper pom poms:
Accordion fold 7 sheets of tissue paper together with 7 folds, each about 1 inch wide. Find the center of the stack and wrap floral wire around the center to create a divide. Fan out each side of the tissue paper and carefully pull out each layer of paper until you have a ball.



To create the leaves:
Cut craft paper into a silhouette of a figure 8 and make a fold in the center where the leaves meet. Using a craft knife or scissors make a small “x” incision into the center of the crease to create a hole to pull the twine through. Next, fold a crease through both leaves to give your shape some character.
