Tissue Pom-Poms

Okay so everyone has seen these tissue pom-poms… right?? They’re everywhere these days, and for good reason. Not only are they a super cute decoration, but they’re cheap and easy to make too! They would be adorable in a nursery, but since I already have a mobile hanging from the ceiling in Liv’s room and a pink polka dotted flying cow from FlyingZoo hanging in Elle’s room, the ceilings are at their max. Soooo, I was excited to incorporate the pom-poms into a party I planned. Here’s the link to the instructions on how to make these yourself. You can pick up tissue and wire for pretty cheap, but Martha Stewart has a kit for these at Michaels, and I think it’s worth the extra money. The tissue in the kit is heavier weight than you typically find at a party store, which makes for a fuller, sturdier pom-pom.

We hung these with 3M hooks (gotta love those things!!) & invisible thread over the food spread and outside the front door. They were a big hit at Liv’s party and one of the easiest party decorations ever!

any ideas on how to display the pom poms without hanging them from the ceiling?? i bought a kit at michael's to use for a bridal shower, then found out the ceiling are much to high and not safe to go up to hang anything! i really want to use the poms so i am browsing online for ideas! thanks.

Liz, how about hanging them from a string or ribbon hung across the room from wall to wall... I'm thinking something sort of like this:
although not necessarily the lanterns they're using there.
my only other thought is to maybe make half pom poms, where one side is flat, and hang them on the wall?
