DIY Carnation Pom Pom Flowers...


Tissue paper carnation pom pom flowers are so easy to make.
And they have a myriad of uses.
You can make a banner with them to decorate your homes decor or porch for celebrations:
pool parties, birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers,
weddings, Christmas, Easter, Valentines Day....
And probably a whole lot more uses than I have listed here.
So let's get to the nitty gritty of how to create them.


Cut 6 layers of tissue paper into a 11cm by 16cm rectangle.


Concertina 2cm folds (over/under) as shown.


Cut ends to curve as shown.


Tie a string or thin ribbon to make hanger.
Tie loosely not tightly.
If you tie too tight it will make it much harder to pull out and separate the layers.

Pull each end out as if a fan.


Now carefully separate and fluff out each tissue layer.

 You can make the Carnation Pom Pom flowers out of any solid coloured or patterned  tissue paper.

Here I have used the carnation pom pom flowers to make a little banner.


They really are so delicate and pretty...



And here they are used as a Christmas decorations.
