But it is crafty.
I saw this idea on the Martha Stewart weddings for some tissue paper pom-poms. We'll have a tent at the wedding, and I was thinking of having paper lanterns for decoration. Then I came across this which would be much cheaper.
Not being Martha Stewart, I wasn't sure I' d be able to achieve this look, so I bought some floral wire and tissue paper yesterday. This morning, while still in my pj's, I decided to give it a try. This is the quick and dirty, less than 5 minute pom-pom I made.
Not bad, eh? A pack of tissue paper is 99 cents. The floral wire was $1.99 for what looks to be a lot of wire. Imagine if I get some crafty people to help me and we focus on folding and cutting the ends nicely, I think they'll look very pretty.
I'd like to have dahlias for flowers, and these pom-poms remind me of them.
