Tissue poms have become a popular decor choice at weddings - and we love them! They are an easy and cost-effective DIY that can really add some fun and femininity to the decor.

Things you"ll need:

- Tissue Paper

- Floral Wire (I didn"t have any so I used sewing thread).

- Scissors

First thing to do is lay out all of the tissue paper sheets flat on the table. From there you can fold them accordion style. Be sure you crease the folds well.

Next, take your floral wire (or in my case thread) and tie it around the middle of your folded tissue paper.

While it is folded, cut the ends in a point, or rounded. (Rounded is shown below).

Now it"s time to fluff! This is the fun part. Be very careful because tissue paper can rip very easily. What you will want to do is slowly pull each layer of tissue paper apart.

Once all of the layers have been pulled apart, fluff and play with the shape until you are happy with it.

And voila! You have a tissue pom . To hang, tie thread or string under the floral wire and then hang it with tape or a hook, whichever you prefer.

We love how versatile these can be. We have seen adorable poms made out of polka dot tissue paper which were amazing. We also love the look of these minature poms that can be used to glam up wedding place settings. This pom was not cut rounded like we did, this is what it looks like if you cut the tissue in pointed triangles.
