For those DIY brides looking to have decorations that stand out yet are inexpensive and easy to make, the paper poof is an excellent idea. Whether you decide to make them bright and colorful or classical and elegant, these poofs can fit any theme of wedding. These are also great for bridal shower decorations or even your rehearsal dinner. We found this lovely DIY Project on Suburbanbliss.net. Which by the way, is a great and very funny blog to read even if you don’t live in the burbs.
Okay here’s what you need to get started!
• 20×30 standard tissue paper – colors matching your theme
• Wire or ribbon – to hold your tissue paper together
• Fishing line or ribbon – to hang your poof up
Take 8-10 pieces of tissue paper layered together and begin to fold them, like a fan or an accordion, 1 to 2 inches wide
After finishing folding the entire stack of tissue paper take your wire or ribbon, 4 to 6 inches long, and wrap it around the middle of your stack. This is to hold your tissue paper in place and will be how you attach your poof to the wall, chairs or wherever you decide to hang them.
When you are satisfied with the poof, find the wire or ribbon that you tied in the middle of your poof and connect to your fishing line or ribbon you will be using to connect it to the ceiling, chairs, or where ever you decide to place it. Viola, you’re done! Thanks again to SuburnBliss for this easy, fun and inexpensive wedding decoration.
