One of my favorite bloggers, Tessa from Nine and Sixteen, made a fantastic tissue paper flower pom wreath for a shower that she hosted. I pinned it as a reminder that I wanted to make one like it but was waiting for an occasion. With Memorial Day and the Forth of July within a few weeks of each other, my red, white and blue wreath will get a pretty good run.
Tessa does a great job showing the steps of making the paper flowers. I followed her steps except I skipped wrapping the form with cloth (because it's white) and instead of gluing my poms in place, I stuck a floral pin through the wire and stuck the pin into the form.
I took it apart and reworked the order of the poms a few times so the pins worked best for me. I made 4 big poms and filled in the holes with the smaller ones. I absolutely love the way it turned out! It doesn't go with my maroon door (my house has a craftsman style to it so the colors are a little...different.) but I still love it. I got all of my supplies at Hobby Lobby and there is a coupon on their website!
