Paper pompons are the perfect decoration for anycelebration. Playing with color, you can make such pompons for New Year, Christmas, Easter, Halloween, for a birthday or wedding! And to make them very simple and relatively fast. For pompons, usually crepe or crepe paper is used, as well as silence. The last option is more airy, with light transparency and grace. But he - and more expensive. The choice is yours. Let's see a master class on how to make paper pompons with your own hands.
For the manufacture of paper pompons will need:
crepe paper (at the rate of 1 sheet of 50x200cm 1 pompon); thin wire (for beadwork - quite suitable); suspension tape; scissors; ruler; simple pencil; two small stationery clips.
Pompons from paper do it yourself: job description
You can make monochromatic or bi-multicolorpompons For colorful options, simply put several different sheets of paper to form one pom-pom. So, our sheet of crepe paper is rolled up. We measure the middle of the roll and, without unwrapping, cut it in half. Now you need to deploy the first roll andfold it in half and again in half, i.e. to make four layers of paper. We cut the edges to make 4 separate sheets - their size will be 25x50 cm. When I made a paper pom-pom for the first time, I made a mistake: I folded the sheet into 6 parts, and each rectangle to form a pom-pom turned out to be 25x33 cm. Experience suggested that the rectangle should be much longer. Option 25x50 or at least 25x40cm is perfect. In the same way we cut the second roll - we will have a pile of 8 sheets. Cut a small piece of wire - no more than 25 cm. We fasten the sheets with clips. We decorate both edges of the rectangle along its long parts - we cut out the petals, sharp or rounded. We fold our rectangles harmonica (remove the clips ahead of time). On the finished harmonica we measure with the ruler the middle and put a mark - for example, with a simple pencil. At this mark, the harmonica is tightly wound with wire and tied into a knot. Over wrapped with a ribbon, which will besuspended ready pompon. Why is not enough one tape, and it is necessary to pre-fasten with wire? If you tie a ribbon, it is likely that the finished pom-pom will crumble. And we can not allow this to happen! Here is a blank paper pom-pom from usturned out. If you need to make pompons at home, and then take them to the place of celebration, where you will have a little time, you can limit yourself to the preliminary creation of blanks, and you will straighten them in place. How to straighten pompon? Getting started. At the accordion we detach the upper layer on both sides of the tie-ribbon and lift them up, as shown in the photo below. We act the same way with the rest of the leaves - approximately to the middle of the pile. Carefully turn over, without putting our flower on the table. Perform the same manipulations - lift the leaves up. When all the leaves are straightened, it will turn out like this. Not very neat. It is easy to fix. You need to take a paper pom-pom for a ribbon as close to the center as possible and shake it well, you can help your hands a little to get the desired shape - spherical. Now it is wonderful. You can hang hand-made from corrugated or crepe-paper pompons where the most interesting things will happen. And beautiful. Enjoy your creativity!
