Hands on creativity can help you to relax unwind and take a step back from the stresses of the day to day, and there’s no better time to get crafty than at Christmas.
These homemade Christmas Pom Poms are easy to make (by yourself or with the family) and best of all they look gorgeous hung around the house.
Give your Christmas a personal touch with this simple how to:
8 pieces of rectangular tissue paper (25 x 38cm)
Begin by layering each piece of tissue on top of one another, lining them up as accurately as possible.
Starting from one end, begin folding the paper in an ‘accordion-fold’ pattern.
You should now be left with a straight length of tissue paper. Fold this in half and secure with your string.
Snip both the ends into a point, and pull the accordion-folds apart.
Start to gently pull up each layer, fluffing them out. Do this from both sides.
