Decorating for a festive occasion? Got some old lightweight paper lying around? Make some cheerful paper pom poms from tissue paper with this handy tutorial from Kim Searle.

So I was thinking of ways that pom poms could be made using up-cycled materials, and someone incidentally gave me a load of all dress patterns at the event. Dress patterns are easy to come by, often in charity shops and second hand markets, or if you’re luckily like me, people often give you a big stack.

For those who might cringe at the thought of destroying an old dress pattern for the sake of pom poms, Searle suggests that other kinds of paper will work as long as it’s thin enough, like an old phone book.
