Tissue Paper Pom Pom Flower

Posted 2013-03-05 by Oxford Explorerfollow


Inspired by the beautiful and delicate looking tissue paper pom poms from howtoi I thought these could be turned into some striking flowers. You could make a whole bouquet and give them as a Mother's Day present.

Time: 20 minutes
Age: Over 10's
Level: Medium

This is how to make a large multi coloured flower.

Materials
  • 8 pices of tissue paper 30x40cm
  • 2 long green pipe cleaners
  • Scissors
  • Chopstick

  • Method
  • Lay each piece of tissue paper on top of each other, alternating the colours.

  • You could also use a single colour or try several shades of one colour


  • Fold the tissue paper bundle, back and forth like an accordion or concertina.



  • When it's fully folded, secure by twisting one of the pipe cleaners in the centre.



  • Cut a triangle into each end of the tissue paper.



  • Carefully unfold and start to tease out the layers of tissue paper.



  • Ruffle up to make sure it's even all the way around.
  • Taking hold of the pipe cleaner, lay the chopstick next to it and twist around.
  • Take the second pipe cleaner and starting over the where the first is wrapped around the chopstick, continue wrapping around. This will hold the flower securely to it's stalk.



  • You could paint the chopstick green in advance if you want the stalks to show or just group together and put in a vase (without water)
