STEP 1:

Start by laying out 3 sheets of your tissue paper then folding them into an accordion fold. You’ll want the folds to be about 1.5 – 2 inches wide but it doesn’t have to be perfect.

STEP 2:

Next, cut the strip that you now have straight down the middle so that you’re left with two smaller strips of accordion folded tissue paper.

STEP 3:

Add your small elastic band over the paper and position it directly in the centre.

STEP 6:

Repeat with the other side of the pom pom and voila! You now how one perfect and pretty pom pom. Next, repeat with the rest of your tissue paper! We made 30 pom poms in total for this heart back drop.

STEP 7:

Place strips of double sided tape onto each of the pom poms and then push them against the wall to secure them in place! We found it easier to create the outline of the heart first and then fill it in with the remaining pom poms.
