Pom Poms can add a little touch to any wedding or event. The above weddings took place in two different places but both brides chose to add a little flare to their wedding with the DIY Pom Poms. We found the how to at Martha Stewart to share with all of our readers! If you have made these before leave us a comment or send us a photo at

How to Make the Pom-Poms-From

You'll need tissue paper and 24-gauge white cloth-covered floral wire.

Hanging Pom-Poms
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 mono filament to floral wire for hanging.

Have fun DIYing...
