Tulle Pom Poms

You’ve probably come to realize by now that I love everything pretty and girly.  Luckily for me, I ended up with two girls so I get to throw all sorts of fun birthday parties.  We’ve had everything from Minnie Mouse to Cupcake Fairy for Riley’s birthday parties so far.  Avery turned one recently and I tried to stay within reason for her party.  I swear, I really did try.  We had a Fairy First Birthday that was complete with a highchair tutu and some gorgeous Tulle Pom Poms.  These Pom Poms are SO easy to make and they work great as favor toppers or even strung in a garland.  Let me show you just how simple they truly are.

Tulle Pom Poms Tutorial

Tulle Pom Poms Tutorial #diy #pompoms #partyideas
You start out by cutting off a stand of tulle that is about 10 inches long and set that aside.  I wanted smallish pom poms so I decided to use the width of my hand.  You can also use a book depending upon the size of the pom pom that you’re looking for.  Wrap the tulle around your hand twenty times.  This is made much easier if you let the spool of tulle dropped to the ground so that you can just quickly wrap it around your hand.  Cut the tulle so that it is no longer connected to the spool and slip your hand out of the wrapping.  Be sure to keep the tulle as if your hand is still inside of it though.

Tulle Pom Poms First Steps

Take the ten inch piece of tulle and tie it around the center of the looped tulle.  You want to tie this tight because it’ll be the center of the pom pom.  It should look like a bow.  Don’t worry about making the strip the length of the rest of the pieces because you’ll give your pom poms a “hair cut” as the final step of the process.

Tulle Pom Poms Second Step

Cut each end of the tied tulle so that the ends are no longer folded or attached.  It’s easiest to cut them all at once and then go back through if you missed any loops.

Tulle Pom Poms Third Step

Once you’ve cut both sides, you’ll end up with an uneven ball of tulle.  In order to make them into the perfect pom poms, poof them out and then give each pom pom a “hair cut”.

Tulle Pom Poms Final Step

For Avery’s birthday party I used these tulle pom poms in multiple ways.  I used them as toppers for the party favor, which was glitter playdough.  I also used them to make Fairy Wands, which I’ll be sharing next week.  They came out super cute and were inspired by my Magic Wands that I made for Riley’s Cupcake Fairy Birthday.

    A gas cushion is required in this type of storage to
    assist delivery rates. Of course, the more memory they are capable of
    storing, the more expensive the drive. Since self storage comes in a variety of small and large sizes, you only pay for the space you
    actually need and use.
