I know you all love place cards as much as I do and want to find that perfect one for your holiday table, so I’m really happy to share another beautiful place card idea with you. This Tissue Paper Pom-Pom Place Card Holder is simplistically beautiful and easy to create. I love the flexibility it offers, not to mention the re-use factor. When you are done donning your festive table with these, go ahead and string them together for a sweet pom-pom garland.
These are made like your typical pom poms…just smaller. You only need a few minimal supplies for very little cost so gather your tissue paper, string, and scissors and get creating. I used metallic silver tissue paper because it’s perfect for all of the upcoming holidays. Use any tissue paper that coordinates with your colors or theme, you can even use patterned tissue paper.
My tissue paper pom-poms are roughly 6 by 7 inches, 6 sheets in a stack. You want to stay around that size to get nice fluffy pom-poms.
Accordion fold your stack of tissue paper in roughly one inch increments. Tie some string around the center. Round the ends of the folded tissue paper with scissors.
Now comes the part that makes or breaks a good pom-pom, gently separate your tissue paper to the center. Work with easy, gentle hands or you will end up with a ripped up mess of tissue paper and no pom pom. Slow and steady wins the race. Leave the bottom of the pom-pom flat so that it will sit nicely on your plate.
Make name tags out of plain white card stock or small tags to write your guests’ names on. Use a metallic pen to write the name then slip it in the top of the pom pom.
Isn’t that pretty? I am thinking bold red against basic, white plates would be lovely for Christmas!
What are your colors for the upcoming holidays? I can’t wait to see your Pom Pom Place Card Holders.
