Activating space with a pop.
We recently moved and I've been updating my daughter's room. To add some interest to the empty corners I made paper decorations. There are a lot of great rooms on blogs (most of them nurseries) and I tried to implement some of my favorite ideas. I did not make the paper lanterns. I did make all of the pompoms and garland though. I used scrap tissue paper from gifts and packages and scrap fabric left over from other projects.

Here are some similar tutorials to help you make this one!
This is the link to the Martha Stewart instructions for pompom making. I used this to get the basics of how to make them. You can use as many sheets of tissue paper as you want and whatever size you like. The important thing is to make sure your paper is in cut in squares and that you have enough, but not too many sheets. You will likely need at least 6 layers, but the more layers, the more full the finished pompom. If you use too many layers though, they can become hard to separate and tear when you pull them. Martha says to use 8, but, she can't tell you what to do.
