This is such a great DIY. I made these cute flower poms for a Senior Prom Dessert Table.
The poms are made from napkins instead of tissue paper. Yep, you heard me right.
When I found these adorable napkins in the soft, blush pink I needed, I was so excited!
I just love polka dots and that was what I chose for the dessert table sign (check out below).
They’re made exactly the same way as tissue poms, so super easy!
I love that there are many more options and they are more durable than tissue paper.
So let’s get started.
You can use either the dinner or the beverage size napkin. In this case, I used the beverage size.
You’ll also need a little thin wire and some scrapbooking paper.
Open the napkin, smooth it out and begin layering .
I stacked 8 napkins on top of each other evenly.
Begin at one end & make a one inch fold and crease well,
Turn over the stack and crease again.
Continue flipping the stack over and creasing accordian style until it is all folded.
Find the center and fasten with a small thin wire.
Begin with the top layer and gently pull the napkin forward
Continue layer by layer until it’s all filled out. Isn’t it pretty?
I used a paper punch to make circles for the center of my flowers and attached with a puff dot.
And there you have it. I love the way they turned out! Don’t you?
