DIY Waterproof Pom-Poms for Outdoor Events
I just used the folded lines that were already there. I got 4 perfect squares from the 54 inch width of the table cover. I didn't care what size my poms were, so this was OK. They were a good enough size.
Cut all the folded squares into separate pieces.
Fold as an accordion as many times as you can. Use one inch folds.
Have a piece of string ready before you start folding. Unlike tissue paper, the plastic will not stay folded if you let it loose...Tie securely.
Cut the ends pointy or round...It's hard cutting through the plastic but it does not have to be perfect cuts.
Start pulling the layers away from the folds to stand upright.
This is how it should look.
If you want your colors more blended, mix them up more. White, red, blue, white, red, blue. etc...
Make sure the string is centered. If not it will hang crooked :) Fold the accordion folds in half to make sure...
No need to worry about the forecast and sudden rainfalls with these! They can be set up days before a party or event. Huge time saver. Cut smaller squares for smaller, cuter poms.
