Tissue Paper Flower Pom-Pom for Above Olive’s Bed

21 Aug

Pinterest, oh how I love thee and thy ways you maketh my dreams of completing a diy-to-do list into an infinite wayward pipe dream. I’m pretty sure we all have a countless number of pins on all of our virtual pin-boards, but do we actually ever get around to “doing” that which we are “pinning”? One of my favorite blogs (Young House Love) has created a self-imposed challenge for its readers called “The Pinterest Challenge: Stop Pinning and Start Doing!” You can read more about the most recent of those challenges and check out tons of DIY projects right here.

Alas, I have finally gotten around to making my version of this (originally found here) lovely over-the-bed tissue paper pom-pom (canopy?) for Olive’s room:

I’ll spare you all the how-to-make-a-tissue-paper-pom-pom details here, but if you’re interested in seeing how I made each flower/pom-pom you can follow this link for an AMAZING tutorial.

We started with some paper lanterns that we already had hanging around the house and some tissue paper in a variety of complementary colors bought from Party City, which I found to have the most variety to choose from as compared to Target and even Michael’s:

As usual, Olive helped:

🙂

We started out by hanging the paper lanterns first and then incorporated the pom-poms after finding some balance with the lanterns, using paper ribbon and the existing hook from the hula hoop canopy the was previously hanging over her bed:
