Just say the word pom poms. Isn’t that word too much fun? Love it!! Pe ohm Pe ohm . Yes, each syllable must be enunciated. You say there aren’t two syllables in pom? Well then…you aren’t pronouncing it correctly. Get out your sunglasses. Flick your wrist. Pretend you are fancy, rich, and blonde. No offense blondes. Then say it with two syllables. See…. what a difference! You just moved this humble craft into the world of elite crafts.
I know that there are plenty of tutorials out there to make pom poms of all sorts and kinds. But, doesn’t matter. I’m still excited that I conquered them and so you get to be excited with me. Yay you. With paper. Not tissue. Why paper pom poms? Because, I have lots of paper. Simple as that. You were hoping for something more profound?? Use what you got. That’s my mantra.
And so we move on to the paper pom poms tutorial…
The WHAT WHAT:
Hot glue gun
The HOW HOW:
Follow the picture to fold your circles in half, half again, and half yet again.
Use hot glue to attach the very tips of your circles to one another in a sphere shape.
Open the circles up as much as possible.
Using patterned paper makes your pom poms even more interesting. But, don’t use cardstock…it won’t bend properly.
In some spots I folded the tip of the circle so that it would sit the way I wanted in the center of the sphere.
You won’t be able to open all of the circles all the way. Just do as many as you can.
The more circles you use…the more full it appears.
Speaking of pom poms…have you seen my pom pom sweater? Or Cotton Ball Sweater, as I call it!
