I was recently inspired to update my Christmas mantel décor this year (see all the details in this post). I really loved the look of this white Snowball Wreath from CB2. Unfortunately, I did not love the price tag. However, in looking at it, I figured this was something I could try to make myself to save some money on the designer look I wanted! I had experience making the Martha Stewart tissue paper pom poms and flowers before (see how I used them for these easy DIY napkin rings), and I thought that I could make the same effect for this DIY pom pom wreath using the same type of tissue paper flowers. Here’s how I made a DIY paper flower wreath. Pin this if you’re looking for instructions on how to make a tissue paper wreath.
How to make a DIY pom pom wreath
Since I was making smaller flowers (and not large hanging pom poms) to make this DIY paper flower wreath, I cut sheets of white tissue paper into eighths (each sheet creating eight rectangular sheets).
Using eight sheets (one full sheet of tissue paper) and a piece of wire, I followed these instructions to fold the sheets into accordion folds, tie with wire, and trim the edges into a rounded curve.
After securing with wire and trimming the edges, carefully separate and fluff each sheet of tissue paper to create individual flowers for the tissue paper flower wreath.
For the frame of this DIY pom pom wreath, I purchased an 18″ wooden wreath form at a craft store. Using the wire from the flowers, I attached the flowers to the wreath form at a two-flower width. I used approximately 32 flowers to cover the 18″ wreath form.
I am really happy with how this DIY paper flower wreath turned out! You can see the DIY pom pom wreath styled with the rest of my chic holiday mantel décor in this post.
