Thinking About...




...my sister's bridal shower that I'm hosting in our backyard at the end of the month. And how we must have paper pom poms. Lots of em.

But it looks like Martha Stewart Crafts is sold out of them. Suggestions?

Did you try making the pom pom's?
I was inspired by martha's post to make a batch for my friend's bachelorette party. They were pretty but did't seem as full and fluffed up as the one's in Martha's pic.

I thought of that - and I might do it - but I was looking for a quick & easy solution:) We'll see.

You could easily make them yourself. Here's the tutorial from Martha Stewart!

Let me know how it works out. I love the look of pom poms.

I bought some from PomLove on Etsy and they were great! sO CUTE!

Hmm, doesn't look so bad. Maybe I will. We have a lot of lavender tissue paper that would look great. Stay tuned.

I saw a bunch of them at the Michael's store... I'm not sure where you are located but they should be able to let you know where to find some more. I just made a bunch for my friend's shower. It was more time consuming to actually fluff them then folding them together. Good luck!

Pearl River may have something similar - they seem to stock lots of paper decor...

they are quick and easy to make. I made four in less than an hour the other night for a party.

It's a neat look--maybe Oriental Trading? I know it's cheesy as Hades, but desperate times...

Make them they are super easy and pretty quick to make. Check out my blog we made all the pom poms for that party, including the installation above the bar, we had about 5 people and we did them all with in 4 hours

You can buy them at Michaels. They are awesome and with a little time can easily be made by hand.

liz stanley said...

yeah, i've made them and they're super easy. but if michaels carries them that might be even easier and you can concentrate on other details. good luck!

So easy to do yourself. I acheived extra fullness in my puff balls by making 2, fluffing them into half spheres, and attaching them together.
