Printing Paper Poms!



I am totally in love with my $55 Little Girl Playroom, and the icing on the cake for me was adding these printing paper party poms to June's teepee.


They are so super easy (and cheap!!!) to make. And despite all the hours I put into all of the other projects in the room, June's favorite thing is hands down these printing paper poofs. I was like, "Seriously? Those only took me 10 minutes to make!" Haha!

Aren't they so pretty? These came into being when my sisters and I were hosting a garden party. We wanted to make tissue paper poofs... but didn't have any tissue paper, only colored printing paper. I love the result even more than if it had been tissue- it's less flabby and will last for a long time!

TO MAKE ONE YOU WILL NEED THE FOLLOWING:

♥ 18 sheets of colored paper 

(thin is fine... thick doesn't form as well) 
♥ Wire 
(pipe cleaners work too!) 
♥ Ribbon 
(to hang them with)




We added stands of glass beads to the bottoms for a flowy feel. You can also put bows and flowers on them too!


Try alternating different shades of paper like white and pink.



These are so easy to make! If you want to make smaller ones, liek the ones I made for June's teepee, just cut the paper in half (so it is 5.5"x8.5")


Inside or outside, they are so enchanting!



I LOVE them so much & they are the perfect accessory to June's room!



Total: $0.50
String- left over from other project
Paper $0.50
