DIY Party Pom Poms

Hey lovelies! It’s Barbara from Chase the Star and in case you don’t know, I love simple and cheap projects! We recently celebrated my son’s birthday with a fun, yet very ‘DIY’ party at our house. One of the easiest decorations I made was party poms, we skipped the balloons and went with poms throughout and they were a hit!

Sure you can buy party poms at the store, but they are not budget friendly! For a fraction of the cost and just a few minutes you can make your own party poms!

Want to liven up your next party? Here’s how to DIY Party Poms:


Pack of gift tissue

Pipe Cleaner

Step 1:

Lay the tissue on a flat surface, and smooth the sheets out. Start folding the tissue accordion style from the short side of the batch, until the entire pack is folded.


Step 2: Tightly wrap the pipe cleaner around the center.

Step 3: Snip the ends of the folded tissue in either a rounded or pointed shape (you can get really creative here!)

Step 4: Peel each tissue back towards the center, until you have the shape you like!


Repeat, repeat, repeat! You can make these larger or smaller by adjusting the amount of tissue sheets you use. I also love the look of these to decorate a fun space in the house like a kid’s room or nursery, playroom, or a modern living room!

Our son thought these were ‘way cool’, and so do I!

What do you think? Would you substitute balloons for DIY Party Poms?
