Puffy Pom Poms

So last night as I was combing through all the blogs that inspire me {over there on the side bar ===>} I had the need to create something. 



I wanted to paint, but did not have the colors I needed.  I wanted to sew, but didn't have the matching thread.  Then, I remembered I saw some puffyness made from napkins and thought, I have those.  So just before turning in, I fluffed out a few of these.  Sorry for the bad lighting, night pics indoors don't turn out so well in my house.

So these were too easy.  I got 2 napkins and opened them up and cut on all four seems.  I took the first napkin and stacked the layers and then cut scallops along the edges.  Then took the other one and did the same.  I then accordion folded the napkin and secured with floral wire wrapped in the middle to each of them.  Then began to separate the layers of the layers.  Be careful cause napkins tear easy.  They are not the bounty type of material.

I just used the 4" napkins, so they turned out very full.  The bigger the napkin size, the more layers you need.

Sorry, no pics for the tutorial, but I think you get it, right?

Happy crafting weekend!
