I had a lot of fun tonight making the tissue “puffs” for Maggie’s crafty pool party. I thought these would look cute hanging from the ceiling as a more chic alternative to balloons. Of course M.’s only response was a very pathetic “I’m not going to have balloons for my birthday?” So we’ll see.
Anyway, they were super easy to do, and relatively inexpensive (as long as you can get a good deal on tissue paper!)
Step 1: Layer 9 sheets of tissue paper. Cut in half (will make 2 puffs).
Step 2: Fold tissue in a 1/2″ accordion fold.
Step 3: Tie middle with floral wire
Step 4: Using scissors, round off both ends.
Step 5: Starting from the middle, peel off and “fluff” each layer of tissue to make a round ball.
