pom poms


  1. Wow, so pretty!

    I was looking up tutorials for fabric poms earlier today -- I'd like to try it sometime.

  2. ooh. I've never made them with fabric. Is it basically the same technique as with tissue paper? sounds lovely!

  3. I found this tutorial:

    I would probably use thread and I would find something else for the centre -- not even sure where one can buy those paper laterns?

    I actually don't know how to make the tissue paper ones but there was a Martha Stewart kit at Michaels that was $30!

  4. Those are so pretty! I might have to try them.
    They are a totally different technique than the tissue ones. I used Martha's instructions from here:

    I used leftover tissue, using one sheet for each pom pom - cut into eight sections, rather than eight full sheets like Martha's big ones.

    I bet you could find lanterns like that in Chinatown.
