  4. Cut all napkins a few mm in the middle of both sides, but DO NOT CUT!

  7. Take the first napkin and carefully pull the individual layers apart!
  8. So … until all layers are separated from each other!

Make pom poms out of tissue paper!

Make pom poms out of tissue paper

Tissue paper pom-poms are light as a feather and can also be attached at heights. The more sheets you use, the rounder and fuller the pompom will be after unfolding! You need the following materials: tissue paper (at least 8 sheets) in the color of your choice; a pair of scissors, ruler and wire:

  1. Lay the paper so that the narrow side is in front of you!
  2. Then fold, fold and then fold: to fold the perfect accordion, the paper is always turned over on the other side!
  3. Fold each sheet of paper like this!
  4. Then put the two ends together so that the middle is marked!
  5. Carefully cut a few millimeters along the center line!
  6. The wire is wound exactly at these incisions! Twist about 3 barks and then knot the wire tightly together!
  7. After that, you can trim the ends however you like!
  8. Unfolding the layers of paper is the last step here! Lift the individual paper layer in the middle and at the corners and pull it apart as a whole!
  9. Repeat these steps for each layer of paper!
  10. Find a little place for your new ones and hang up!

Make pompoms out of wool!

Making pom poms out of wool: Instructions

To make these pom-poms, you need scraps of wool, a piece of cardboard, scissors and compasses:

  1. With the compass, draw a circle the size of the pompom you want on the piece of cardboard and draw another, but smaller, circle in this circle!
  2. Cut out the shape to make a ring. Use the ring as a template for another cardboard ring so that you end up with two identical cardboard rings!
  3. Cut out a small piece!
  4. Place the two cardboard rings on top of each other and gradually wrap them evenly with wool!
  5. The smaller the opening in the middle of the rings at the end, the fluffier the bobble will be!
  6. Cut the wool on the long side between the cardboard rings!
  7. Finally, pull a wool thread between the two cardboard rings and knot it! Make sure the thread is tight enough. This is the only way that the pompom has the necessary stability in the end!
  8. Remove the cardboard rings!
  9. Any threads that protrude are cut off with nail scissors!
  10. And the pompom is ready!
