Party Mode Part III: Ladybug Centerpieces


One of the main displays at a party are the Centerpieces. I have seen the famous pompoms everywhere but never made any myself. I thought that JoJo's 1st birthday in 4 weeks would be a perfect time to finally give them a try. I tried them out and I added my twist to them !
The Tutorial:
Supplies: Tissue Paper (Dollar Store)
Toule( recycled)
Ladybug Images(printed out from computer)
Black poster board(Dollar Store)
Green Easter Grass(Dollar Store)
Vases(Recycled)
Step 1 Stack 2 sheets of tissue. Make accordion folds, creasing with each fold.
Step 2
Twist pipe cleaner over center of folded tissue; twist. With scissors, trim ends of tissue into rounded or pointy shapes

Step 3 Separate layers, pulling away from center one at a time.

Step 4 - Twist Pipe cleaner around bottom of pom pom to make it more secure and so it looks more like a flower.
Step 5- Have Fun decorating with them!

Come back next week to see the next thing I have created, with only  4 weeks left until the my Lil Lady celebrates the big 1!!!
Here is a list of what has been completed:
