DIY Tulle Pom Pom Garlands

We are so excited to share a very special party with you this week! But first we wanted to share the backdrop we created for our sweet table! This party was all about tulle and all about pink! We made mini pom poms all out of different shades of pink tulle and strung them on ribbon. They are fairly simple to make, and so darn cute you will squeal with delight when you see them all strung together! (We will show you the full backdrop very soon!)
All you need is tulle in the color of your choice, wire, wire snips, 4x6 card stock or index card and ribbon. Just snip your wire into about 4 inch pieces and measure your tulle into 90" pieces.

After your tulle is cut you are going to wrap it around your card stock.
Gently pull it off the paper and wrap your wire around the center of the tulle. It will leave you with something that looks like a little bow tie. Take your scissors and cut the top and cut the bottom to reveal the layers of tulle.
Then you will simply pull the tulle pieces apart and "fluff" it to create a pom.




*please note the tulle pom poms are not an icing designs original idea, we adapted them to make them our own style*

Ohhh..I can't wait to see the rest of the party! Pompom backdrop looks great =)

Awesome! I've been wondering how people make the tulle poms, and this makes so much sense I don't know why I didn't realize it. It's a lot like making a tissue paper pom mixed in with making a tutu, lol.

Love this! Think I will be making these for my nieces ballerina themed bday party:D But you said 90 inches of tulle? Is that a typo or am I misunderstanding:S How wide...seeing that you have different widths of tulle spool in the image?

Icing Designs said...

Hi Maysem thanks! 90 inches is correct, the width is just whatever width your tulle comes in. In the photo the larger roll of tulle just makes a larger pom. Let us know if you have any other questions, we are glad to help!
Thanks!

I was wondering if you could give instruction on your you hung them? Meaning how did you attach them to the string (if that's is string) and how you attached them to the ceiling or wall? Thanks!

I still don't understand the folding process, seems like it was completely ignored. I want to make these but don't know how even after reading this! Ugh1

Very pretty. I will make tulle pompom headbands for my granddaughter.

Karem said...

Do you have the instructions on how to hung them?
How did you attached them to the string?
Thanks :)

malchows said...

I'd like to know as well as Karem...how did you attach them to the string?

Icing Designs said...

So sorry, we actually just happened to see these comment..but yes they are attached to a ribbon. {you could also use a string} just tie the ribbon/string around the very center of the pom ;)
The folding process is very easy, just simply wrap the tulle around the paper as described and then gently pull it off and from there you will tie the wire around the center. hope this helps!
