Today I have a DIY Tulle Pom Pom to share with you! These are created just like the paper pom poms only using tulle. You can make these in any size, or color and you can alter the way you cut the edges for different looks.
First you need about 1 1/2 yards of tulle in any color. Today I’m using white.
The tulle comes folded since it’s on the flat bolt so leave it folded. Fold it the long way once and then in half two more times. It should look like this.
Trim the edges with a rotary cutter around all four sides. This is the easiest way to separate the layers. If you missed one or two later you can use your scissors, so don’t worry if you don’t catch every edge.
I ended up with approximately a 14″ square.
Start at one end and make accordion folds. This can be a bit tricky since the tulle doesn’t flatten like the tissue paper but do the best you can.
Once you reach the end, tie a ribbon or string at the middle to hold the folds together. This is a good time to ask someone to help you!
Trim any edges that don’t match up.
Pull each layer, one at a time, to the middle, alternating sides until your pom is full.
You can hang, tie to chair back or pillow, fill large vases with them. You can make smaller ones and tie to packages. I have one tied on my daughter’s headboard, you can make a garland of them, put on a ring bearer pillow like I did here. The possibilities are endless! Want to buy one? I can make one for you, send an email to email@example.com.
A few tips. The more layers of tulle you use the fuller the pom will be.
Fold any way you want to create the size pom you are making just be sure to cut the edges apart. When you go to separate the layers don’t be afraid to carefully cut apart any layers you may have missed.
