DIY Pom Pom Flower Party Sticks

This party decor doubles as party favors. I love that you can use these for a centerpiece but guests can take them home as a toy or to march around in a celebratory parade. (Kids are obsessed with them!) They are very simple and inexpensive to make you’re just going to get real cozy with your exacto knife to make lots of fringe. See the full instructions below!

Materials Needed: Pack of tissue paper with 10 sheets in each color (we chose peach, bright turquoise, kelly green, limon, buttercup, and pink from the party shop), x-acto knife, ruler, tape, dowels, green acrylic paint, paint brush, painter’s tape, green crepe paper (we used limelight and emerald isle), scissors, hot glue

Step 1: Stack 10 sheets of tissue paper and cut into eight 7-1/2″ x 10” rectangle stacks. With a standard 20” x 30” tissue pack, you can get this size by flattening the pack and cutting it in half, crosswise, three times.
Step 2: Cut long, 1/2″ wide fringe from tissue stack, leaving a two inch margin on the top.
Step 3: Roll the fringe into tassels and tape to secure.
Step 4: Shake the tassels to separate all the strands. Crinkle the tassels to get more body. And then shake again!
Step 5: Paint the dowels. Let dry completely.
Step 6: Once dry, tape the bound end of the tassels to one end of the dowel. With eight tassels attached, you should have one BIG pom when you’re done!
Step 7: Cut two to three leaves from green crepe paper. Fold to make a crease in the center.
Step 8: Hot glue the leaves to the stem — and you’re all done! 

Add variety to your flowers by using different shades of green for your leaves and stems, making some stems striped, and varying the stem lengths!
