  • eight to twelve 20x30 inch various coordinating colors of tissue paper
  • scissors
  • fishing line or ribbon


  • Start by stacking eight to twelve 20x30 inch sheets of tissue paper together from lightest to darkest.
  • Measure from the short edge of the paper up 1.5 inches and 3 inches and mark at each spot.
  • Start to accordian fold the paper from the short end all the way up the length of the paper in 1.5 inch increments.
  • Fold the paper in half to find the center and tie a ribbon, fishing line or floral wire around the center to hold the paper in place.
  • Using scissors, trim the ends of the paper into a point or rounded.
  • Start separating the tissue paper layers from each other, pulling toward the center CAREFULLY.
  • Pull the layers all the way around the pom to create the full Pom look you'd like.
  • Using a ribbon or fishing line, hang the newly made Pom from the ceiling or light fixtures.

That’s it! It’s really easy once you try it. I have bought them from the store when I was in a pinch and they never turn out as nice as the ones I make myself. Plus, they’re always more expensive. It’s silly to pay $10 for a few sheets of tissue paper when you can spend $2 and get two homemade pom poms that you made yourself!
