Can you believe I already have another project for you? I have had nothing but wedding on my mind and felt the urge to knock out a lot of stuff lately. Today, I want to show you how to make tulle pom-poms, my way.
I wish they didn't look so much like loofahs. Eh. Oh well.
I had searched different ways to do this, but none of the techniques I found resulted in a "full" pom-pom. So, I tried a mixture of techniques.
What you need:
Bolts of tulle
2" Styrofoam balls
Straight pins (ignore the wire, it didn't work)
1. Cut rectangles of tulle (mine were probably about 7-8" long) and fold accordion style (like a fan). 2. Stick a straight pin through the middle of your folded rectangle.
3. Fold both sides upward and stick the pin into the Styrofoam ball.
4. Repeat many times.
5. Cut a piece of ribbon (for hanging) and pin it into the middle of the ball. (You may want to add some hot glue too, just to give it extra strength.)
And you're done. Now you have a nice loofah-like decorative pom-pom. Hooray!
Unfortunately, I'm going to have to recruit some unlucky individuals to help me make about 20 more of these. AKA - my mom and sister. :)
