How-To Make a DIY Tissue Paper Pomander

Here is a great DIY project that you could use to decorate your Spring/Summer wedding or bridal shower. You can make really big ones (8-by-20 inch) and hang them from your ceiling or on the wall. They can even be used as napkin holders which is what the following tutorial shows you how to do.


  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Floral Wire
  • Tissue Paper


Step 1: Lay out your tissue paper. Cut out a 5-by -10 inch rectangle. Make sure you use all the layers of tissue.

Step 2: Fan fold the 5”x10” of tissue. (I used a half inch fold)

Step 3: Cut an 18” piece of floral wire and the wrap it around your fan folded.

Step 4: Fan out the paper on each side of the wire.

Step 5: Start to separate each layer of tissue paper (As you can see my cat, Remy decided to make an appearance there in the background).

Step 6: Continue separating the layers.

And finally … the finished product!!



  1. We made a TON of these for my wedding!! Sadly, we didn’t end up using them :( I had a lot of awesome decorations that never were set up or used, and it really bummed me out.
