Homemade Party Puffs

I will probably be making these party puffs for every shindig I throw from now on!  I followed this tutorial from Martha Stewart with a few minor modifications.  They are super easy to make and incredibly inexpensive.  And as long as you can find the tissue paper color of your choice, the color combos are endless! 

Here's what you'll need:
  • Tissue Paper (3 sheets per puff)
  • String, Twine, Fishing Line, etc.
  • Twist Ties or Floral Wire
  • Scissors

Fold your 3 sheets of tissue paper accordion style with about 1 inch folds. 

Twist two twist ties together and wrap them around the center of the folded tissue paper.

Secure the twist ties around the paper by twisting together.  Then create a small loop with the remaining twist tie ends.  Tie your string to this loop.

 Cut the ends of the tissue paper into either points or a rounded shape.  I chose to do points.

Now you are ready to fluff your puff!

Start at one end and pull the three sheets of tissue paper apart.  I tried to keep the center sheet in the middle and pull the two outer sheets away from it.

And there you have it!  Glorious party puffs all ready to decorate your abode!

I really enjoy these decorations so much!  I especially like them hung around light fixtures.  The lights glow through the different colors of puffs making a really neat atmosphere for your gathering.  They make such a big impact with hardly any work at all.  That's definitely the perfect party decoration for me. :)
