Tulle pom poms are one of the most popular do it yourself projects that is quick and easy to do. Pom Poms can be made in any size that you would like. For our tutorial, we made ours about 6″ in diameter. These can be made within 10-15 minutes. They look amazing hanging inside of a display window, on a feature wall or as part of a promotional display.

To create the pom poms you will need the following items:

Tulle
Ribbon (click here for our entire collection)
Scissors
A standard size magazine

Step 1: Cut an 8″ piece of tulle  off of the roll.

Step 2: Take a roll of tulle and wrap it around a magazine across the front and around the back about 25 times for a standard thickness. If you would like a fuller look, continue to wind an additional 10-15 times.

Step 3: Slide the tulle down and off the magazine with both hands. Pinch the middle and take the loose 8″ piece of tulle and tie it around the bundle into a knot.

Step 4: On each end, trim away about an inch to make the ends even and straight.

Step 5: Fluff out the ends until you are satisfied with the shape of your pom pom.

Step 6: Cut a piece of curling, organza, gross grain or double faced satin ribbon at the desired length and tie it around the pom pom for hanging.
