I’ve been experimenting with oh so famous the Martha Stewart tissue paper pom poms as decorations for our upcoming post-wedding reception in Ohio. (You know what is so brilliant about theses? You can ship them mostly assembled but flat and just poof them out when you get there.) I discovered that these smaller ones, shown here as napkin ring decorations, made with larger rounded ends make for especially charming faux flowers.
To make them I followed the usual instructions using four sheets of tissue paper cut into 4″ by 6″ rectangles. I folded in roughly 3/4″ accordion folds and trimmed the ends like so:
Separate the layers and you can use a bit of floral tape to attach them to a floral wire stem. These are currently gracing my dining room.
