Simple paper pom-poms to make at home

What you'll need:

Supplies

  • Tissue paper in various colors
  • Scissors
  • Short 1/4 -inch-diameter dowels
  • Vinyl tape

Directions:

1

Cut

Step 1: Cut

Stack four sheets of different colored tissue paper on top of one another and fold in half (hotdog style). Then, cut 1-inch-wide strips through all four sheets, stopping an inch before the fold so the strips stay attached.

2

Roll

Step 2: Roll

Starting at one of the corners, take the dowel and start rolling the folded edge of the tissue paper tightly around it. Use the vinyl tape to securely fasten the other end to the dowel.
