Sarah Hurley’s Birthday Pom-Pom Banner
“To use up some leftover wool pom-poms from making my earlier party hats (see the tutorial here!) I decided to make a colourful party banner. To make it more colourful and match my party hats, I made some cute paper pompoms to go in between.” – Sarah Hurley
You Will Need:
- Thin Card (no more than 200gsm so it’s easy to fold) or Paper in Bright Colours
- Circle Punch (I used a 1.5” circle punch to make the smaller pompoms but you could
make them any size you’d like; just scale up the number of punched circles you’ll need in each half!)
- Extra Strength Tape from Stix 2
- Pinflair Gel Glue
- Bamboo or Pokey Tool
How to Make a Birthday Pop-Pom Banner:
Fold each circle into quarters and put tape on the middle and back folds (putting tape from the point in a diagonal line outwards works best as it allows them to puff up more!).
Line up each quarter using the double-sided tape applied to stick them together.
Once you have your 10 circles stuck together, fan them out into a dome and secure with tape.
Make two of these halves and, using Pinflair gel glue, secure them together in the middle.
Allow them to dry fully before puffing them out further.
