Tissue Pomander Ball Tutorial Number 1

First, you need a ball of some sort.

FRUGAL TIP: Styrofoam balls are great, but they are pricey. I decided to wad up magazine pages to make my own! This was a FREE option that works just as well!

Just wad up your magazine pages, form them into a ball, then secure with tape. Packing tape works really well.

Next, grab your tissue. I got several packs from the Dollar Store. I thought the multi-color would be cute, but I'll probably just use solid paper next time rather than printed tissue.

Cut your tissue paper into strips. I like mine a little thicker, so I recommend at least 1-2 inches. Fold it in half and then start rolling it up!

FRUGAL TIP: This is also a great way to use up crinkled tissue paper that you would otherwise throw out.

Starting on one end roll it on itself. Secure with hot glue. Keep twisting, rolling, and securing, and it will eventually make a little rosette shape!

Finally, glue them to the ball all over – until you cover the whole durn thing and it looks fabulous!

See how cute? This was my first time making these. My rosettes were tightly wound, and next time I think I'll do them thicker and looser. Just a side note 🙂
