With that being said I have been looking at one of my favorite websites (Etsy) a lot lately, and I found a few DIY crafts that I wanted to try. I have been obsessed with the wedding section since all my planning started, and have found SO many cute ideas! One being a set of photo booth props, and another being tissue paper pom poms.
Now I will say that for the tissue paper pom poms, I did seek a little help from good ole Martha Stewart. I get her monthly magazines and remember seeing these in one of them. I did a step by step photo shoot of how EASY it really is. Now don't make fun of my chubby tiny hands!
8 20x30 sheets of tissue paper
floral wire (about 4 inches)
monofiliment ( how ever long needed to get the pom pom to hang in desired location)
Step one: After stacking all 8 sheets of tissue paper, make 1- 1/12 accordion folds, creasing after each fold.
Step Three :Twist and tie monofiliment around center of tissue paper ( so that when you start to fluff what is used to hand the pom pom is already in place)
Step Four: Cut edges. Either rounded or pointy. Each will give you a different look. I tried to do rounded but it is kind of a mixture between the two :-)
Step Five: Carefully pull each layer out separately towards the center of pom pom ( where the wire is) to get this!
Second Project was my photo booth props. Now don't worry this is a step by step process. It quite simple, all you have to do is draw shapes of glass, mustaches, lips, hats ect. cut them out, and hot glue a wooden stick onto them.
Decorative Card stock
12inch wooden sticks
Hot glue gun, and glue
Here are my props. It took me a long time to actually make them ( because I am such a perfectionist) so I am super proud!
Well until the next handmade by Rebekah Page!
