I’ve had a couple of requests on how-to make tissue pom flowers. I’ve posted this tutorial before. If you’re not interested in making your own poms, PartyPoms from Etsy sells great tissue pom flower kits.
Paper flowers are such an easy creation you can make with tissue paper. They’re fun, vibrant and colorful – a great way to decorate for a party or room decor. Martha Stewart sells the pom pom kit – if you would like to purchase the kit.
Here are easy step-by-step instructions to make giant paper flowers:
Take 8-10 sheets of tissue paper – lay on a flat surface. I used 20″ x 30″ sheets. Starting at the short end, make a fold at least 1.5 inches wide. Simply fold accordion-style – flip tissue stack over and make another fold. Continue folding until you get to the end of the tissue. Make sure to press firmly creasing with each fold.
Wrap a pipe cleaner (or florist wire) tightly around the center of your folded tissue.
Cut the very end of the stack to make a point or round it – depending on the look you want. Repeat on the other end.
Gently pull each piece of tissue towards the center of the flower, separate each tissue sheet from the others one at time. Fluff and fiddle with the tissue until the desired shape is found. These flowers are approximately 18″ in diameter.
