I saw these adorable little things at my friend Alana's wedding (hey Alana!) and had to know where she got them. Turns out, she had made them! So I invited her over for girl time and we got to work making some and turns out they're super easy and cheap! She got hers from Martha Stewart's line but they are so much cheaper done this way. Sorry for the bad quality photos! Here's the recipe...
What you'll need:
Craft wire (I used green floral wire- doesn't matter- you wont see it)
Pack of tissue paper
Lay out your tissue paper pack
Cut the long sides in a rounded wave pattern
Do an accordion fold. Start on the short (straight) side. Your waves should be on the sides.
Twist wire around the middle of the accordion fold, leaving the ends about 5 inches. This is where you will hold and hang the poof.
Now pull pieces of tissue paper apart.
Repeat on other side until all sheets of tissue paper are separated.
You're done! Now get some string and hang those pretty babies!
These would be so cute in a kid's room or as decoration for a party. You can really get creative with the colors, even mix them up to your liking.
