As I started exploring the tissue pom poms I began to realize the possibilities that await!~ Oh and they do…
Tissue Paper done right=elegant
Tissue paper serving as a flower substitute= DIY
Fluffy Pretties Doubled into centerpiece pretties, ceremony decorations and much much MORE!
Bare with me here…this discovery happened as I began making the huge hanging pom poms. I thought, “Hmmm…I wonder what small baseball size ones would look like?” Well they looked just as fabulous. The great thing about them was that they looked very similar to flowers. I realized that they would be a great replacement for centerpiece flowers. (CHEAPER, much, mucher cheaper!)
Pictures of centerpieces began to dance in my head like fairies and sugar plums.
PLAY TIME: I convinced my roommate to make an adventure out of it and head to the craft school to search for centerpiece elements. We headed to several stores searching for different items: twigs, rocks, floating candles, vases, artificial flowers, vases, paint, stray paint, crystal rocks and twig balls.
We got home and began really playing. After some accidental spray paint OPP…ies and spilt water we came up with some pretty wonderful options.
3 vases(small, medium and large), two twig balls, 3 mini tissue pom poms, one floating candle, three tree twigs and one white fake tulip. Cute…but plain and not fitting in the color scheme.
Step #1-Spray paint the tree twigs black…opps…we really didn’t mean to spray the carpet too!
Step #2-Paint the twig balls (one-silver, one-black)
Step #3-Make tissue pom poms in shades of yellow
Step #4-Water in small vase (Bath and Body Works 3 wick candle jar) and floating candle
Step #5-Water and tulip in medium vase (borrow from wonderful roomies’ company)
Step #6- Three twigs in tall vase
Step #7-Arrange twig balls and pom poms around three vases
and the mood lighting effect…
