I was wondering how come yours looked so much better than my trial pom did- I thought Martha told you to use 20 sheets of paper, and I couldn't seem to get them to look round. They were very oval, and the boy suggested skipping the whole thing because of it. Now I'll show him!
One more question- did you just use really sharp scissors? My tissue cuts are a little ragged, and it makes them look pretty cheap!

I think M.S. suggests using 8 sheets per pom. (If I remember correctly) But, the dimensions of her tissue paper is 20x30 or something, so maybe that is where the confusion came from. I can see where you would get an oval effect with that many sheets.

My "secret" for getting good rounded or pointed ends for each pom was, cut your rounds or points in sections. If you try to get through all the layers at once, you just end up chewing the tissue (hence the raggedy, i had that problem too in the beginning, if you have them around, just cut the "ruined" edges into strips and you can get a cute shaggy pom out of it.). But, if you divide the accordianed strips into 1/3rds and cut in sections, you should have a nicer finish to the ends.

Good luck. Don't give up. You can do it!
The first one I made was kind of sad, but they can all fluffed within an inch of their life or used as filler, so don't throw the fuglies away!

I LOVE YOU!  I seriously about peed my pants when I saw that you had posted a tut.  I saw your gorgeous wedding pictures in another post and the first thing I thought was, "I HAVE to know how to make those".  This is exactly what I was thinking of hanging from the ceiling of our reception site!  Thank you so much for the tut!  I'm sending you a big ol' smooch!

YEAH! I am so glad I could help. I can't wait to see pics of your decorating job! What colours are you using? I'm such a pallette whore. I had to have a different colour scheme for each wedding reception. It was worth it to get to play with all the different colours!

Wow! I love the greens and browns! Delicious!
Everything looks wonderful. Great placement. The garlands of paper flowers are wonderful! I wish I had done that across the fences at my wedding, I love how it looks. What a great idea!!


Can I tell you a "secret"? I still have two of mine and they hang in my kitchen.  Cheesy

ohh, i'm using these at my outdoor wedding!  we're going to hang them in the trees and then i think we're also going to do shepherd hooks down the aisle with poufs hanging on them!

i'm not good with picture posting, so here's a link to my bio page with them:

Lovely poufs!
I wish I had a decent picture of the driveway up to our second reception. It was at my husband's aunt's home and we used shepherd's hooks all the way up the driveway with the little LED paper lanterns in alternating blue & green, it looked so nice!
