that title is said in my best goonies voice. pinches o' power.
you remember goonies? maybe not?
we say 'pinches o' power' all the time in this house.
if you haven't seen goonies, please do so, asap.
so, now onto more awesome things.
such as a DIY for a pom-pom.
you know those things that are plastering the intranet everywhere you look.
i for one, am in love with pom-poms.
i don't care if they are over-used.
they are the easiest and cheapest, cute decoration you can find out there.
so, here is a step-by-step tutorial of how you can make one of your own.
tissue paper (for 1 pom-pom you will need 8 sheets)
pipe cleaner or wire
lay your sheets out, stacked on one another.
begin folding like a fan.
when you're done folding, this is what it should look like...
find the halfway mark by folding it in half.
stick a pipe cleaner (or if you're using wire) where the middle is.
i used a pipe cleaner because i had them already...i wasn't sure if the pipe cleaner would show, but once the pom-pom was fluff-ified you couldn't see the pipe cleaner. worked out nicely.
make the pipe cleaner or wire, tight in the middle, so that the sheets are held tightly together.
thread the ribbon through the top of the pipe cleaner.
cut the ends...either scalloped or into a point.
fan each side out.
fluff it out.
one would say to be careful not to rip the tissue paper, but i tore it lots of times, and it still looked fine.
pom-pom o' power.
so, yes, i'm emily and i'm a pom-pom addict.
i use them at every party i host.
every room i decorate.
where else can i use them?
i'll find a place.
happy weekend ya'll.
