Tulle Pom Pom Wand Tutorial

A delightfully easy project that adds the "princess touch" to any princess party, wedding, dress up, and girl time celebrations...

Supplies Needed:
3 yards of 3" netting (cut a 6" spool in half)
Fish line
1 yard of your favorite flowing ribbon
Hot glue gun
12" wood skewer

Step 1:
The easiest way to cut the 6" netting in half is to lay in straight and flat on a table and cut evenly down the center.

Step 2:
Beginning at one end, scrunch the netting into folds. Make sure the keep the edges as even as possible.

Step 3:
Cut a 12" piece of fish line and tie several knots tightly around the center. This step is easier with two people - the tighter the knot, the better! Fluff your pom pom until it is nice and full. Cut the fish line short and also trim and strangling pieces of netting.

[steps 1-3]
Step 4:
Place a dab of hot glue on the tip of the skewer and insert into the center of the pom pom. Hold tightly together until glue cools.

Step 5:
Tie the ribbon into a loose bow and pull loops away from the center. Add a dab of hot glue to the top center of the knot and place towards the top of the skewer, by the netting. Be sure to adhere the ribbon to the skewer and not the netting for the best adhesion.

Step 6:
Fluff the tulle ball until it is like top image shown.

Have you considered having your LDS papers (specifically Young Women) available for download for digital scrapbooking? They would be a huge hit! Just an idea. ~Vickie
