I just wanted to stop in and post a completed picture of my pom-pom tree I made!!! I am not really quit sure where I will put it but I am starting to unpack my Christmas things today!!! I am looking forward to seeing all those pretty Christmas decorations on all the wonderful blogs in cyber space over the next month, definitely my favorite time of year!!! Well I better run but I do hope you enjoy the photos!!
What I did....
Basically following Martha Stewarts pom-pom instruction except I took the tissue paper "can be purchased at Wal-Mart or any other store in gift wrap section" approx 19 inch x 2ft sheets and folded the longest part in half! Then I folded the longest part of that in half and then again so it gave me the creases I needed to cut the sheet into 8 small sheets, thus allows me to make smaller pom-poms! I then followed the instructions on her website but when it came time to pull the papers apart I pulled them all upward into a flower rather then a pom-pom!
I also used chenille stems rather then wire around the middle of my pom pom so when I was done making them I could put a little tacky glue/super glue on the bottom of the pom pom and stem which I flattened against the pom pom. I then placed the pom-poms on my Styrofoam tree form getting them as close together as possible so not to have any gaps. "Styrofoam tree form can be purchased at Wal-Mart or Michaels in the craft section!!"
Have a lovely weekend friends!! If you have questions about this let me know, I can take more photos of the process as i need to make more little pom-poms in order to make my wreath ;O)
