DIY Honeycomb Pom-Poms|Country Hill Cottage


Today we continue our series of opulent paper
decorations with beautiful honeycomb pom-poms! Just like regular pom-poms, they’re made
of tissue paper and at the end of the video, we show how you can cut them into many different
shapes. The technique for creating honeycomb pom-poms
is a bit more advanced but we created a nifty template to make crafting them easier, a download
link is in the description. Check out our tutorial on regular tissue paper
pom-poms if you prefer a pretty and easy alternative and please subscribe for more crafty videos! Using a ruler and a blade knife, trim 50 sheets
of tissue paper into 26 by 26 centimetres squares – that’s 10.2 by 10.2 inches. To speed up this process cut several sheets
at a time. Print out the gluing template twice and glue
the two templates together. Place a tissue paper square on the template
and run a glue stick vertically across the solid lines. Place the next sheet on top and add glue along
the dotted lines. These lines are our glue guides and indicate
where to apply glue. Alternate the solid and dotted lines between
each sheet to create the honeycomb structure and gently rub along the glue lines, so the
sheets stick. After gluing all sheets, you can see the honeycomb
cells. Apply glue to both halves of the circle template
and adhere both semicircles to the honeycomb. It’s important that the honeycomb structure
is on the side of the template, not on the top and bottom. Cut out both halves, place them on the gluing
template and glue them together along the solid lines. To secure the pom-pom, pull a threaded needle
through the corner of the pom-pom and tie a knot. Leave a little extra to hang the pom-pom and
repeat this process on the other corner. Stick small strips of double-sided tape to
one semicircle. Unfold the pom-pom and secure the back by
firmly pressing the two semicircles together. Using this technique, you can create different
variations. To create a striped or layered effect vary
the colour of the tissue paper every three to four sheets. You can also cut the honeycomb into different
shapes, like diamonds or hearts, by using other templates. Thanks so much for watching and please subscribe

  4. HOT TIP: Since some of you are asking us: You need between 40 to 50 sheets of paper for one pom pom. Instead of tissue paper you can also use other thin, bendable papers, such as kite paper, gift wrap or even regular printer paper. This technique won't work with thick or heavy paper (e.g. card stock), as the adhesive won't be strong enough to hold the honeycomb structure in place.

  6. It's a very decent presentation and yet simple. I will appreciate if you share what size of template should be printed to cut say for each sizes between 6"-18" inch finish honeycomb pompom? Have you made a table kind of it? Say paper sizes, template print size to make desired sizes. Secondly how many layers should one paste in between to make a decent one? Should it be odd or even number? Thank you for sharing the video.
