Martha Monday: Pom Poms

Posted by Brette in Crafts

mondaysFirst, I apologize to all Martha Mondays members because when it comes to crafts like these, I am just hopeless.  I gave it my best shot, but I’m pretty much a total crafting loser.

This week’s Martha Mondays project was pom poms.  I chose to make the napkin ring pom poms. I measured my tissue paper, cut it and folded it. I was fine to this point. pom napkin1

Then I twisted the wire and tried to fluff the tissue. Here is where things got ugly. Somehow, this seemed too long to be for a napkin ring. It looked like a giant bizarre butterfly. I am not very good at fluffing.

I tried to put another wire higher up from the fold, so there would be less paper

flapping around and that worked better. The results were still not that impressive, but that’s due to my ineptitude. I am sure this project worked just fine for others. I do think this is a cute alternative to napkin rings. A friend of mine recently gave a luncheon at her house and didn’t have napkin rings that matched. This would have been a nice project for her because she could have made them in any color she wanted to match.
