DIY Polka Dot Pom Pom Balloons with Tissue Paper Tassels
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that we’re big on pom poms at Bespoke Bride! We even wear them on our heads! So when we decided to fancy up some white balloons I couldn’t resist grabbing a whole bunch of pom poms and tissue paper and getting stuck in! To join in the fun all you need is:
White balloons filled with helium // A bundle of different coloured pom poms // Assorted colours of tissue paper // Scissors // All purpose glue // Stapler //
Step 1: Take your glue and start to glue on your pom poms to the balloons. You need to go steady here and I wouldn’t recommend using as many pom poms as I did as the weighed the balloons down a tad too much and started to lose the effect of the helium!
Step 2: Once all your pom poms are glued down put the balloons to one side and grab your tissue paper! You’ll want to cut a piece out approx 10cm X 20cm the fold it in half so you’re left with a piece 5cm X 10cm.
Step 3: With your scissors cut up into the tissue paper towards the folded edge but stop about 2cm away from the end.
Step 4: Place the end of your balloon against the tissue paper and start to roll it up inside.
Step 5: Staple in place.
Step 6: Pull the tassel strings away from the balloon string and repeat step 4 with your next colour of tissue paper.
Step 7: Staple in place.
Step 8: Continue to do this with all of the colours of your tissue paper until the entire balloon string is covered!
Step 9: Admire those pretty balloons!!
So cute, and so easy right??! I just want to make tons of them and dot them around the house!
