Let me start off by saying, I am not crafty. I envy craftsters. I get decent ideas, I’m not bad with a pair of scissors. But following directions and having patience, not exactly my strong points (how I manage to develop film and prints still blows my mind). All of that aside, I decided to take on the decoration duties for my good friend Stephanie’s bridal shower. In the midst of planning my own wedding I’m always strolling the wedding blogs and there is an abundance of these tissue paper pom poms. Seriously, everybody’s doing it… so I will too.
I followed the instructions of the Craft Master, found here. However, I used thread instead of the suggested floral wire, random sizes of tissue paper, and shitty scissors. Mine are definitely not as nice as some of them out there… I blame the dollar store tissue paper, or maybe the scissors, or the thread. I have about 152 more poms and 2 more weeks. They will get better… or I will pretend I was going for the messy look.
