This tissue paper and tulle topiary takes the traditional pom poms to the next level and coordinated with the wedding colors. I just love how it came out. Here's how to make your own:
paper straw or dowel
hot glue gun and glue

Gently pull the layers away from the center, fluffing as you go. Take care not to rip the tissue paper - this part is time consuming, so just go slowly.
Next, cut 3x3 inch pieces of tulle and fold to make a triangle. Continue folding about five times, then snip the ends in a rounded manner and fluff out the tulle.
On Olivia's (pink one above), I glued in some Minnie Mouse ribbon loops in the middle of the tulle, which I thought looked really cute and helped pull the theme through more.
Finally, add a few more of the tulle puffs in the container to hide the Styrofoam block, and add a cute ribbon to the paper straw or dowel.
