This photo (above) shows how to make a 'small' pom pom. The 1st photo, as you can see, are large pom poms. So just adjust the size of the paper etc to how big you would like your pom pom to end up.
What You'll Need: Tissue Paper (buy packets that contain 8-10 sheets, very easy to find at $2 shops), steel wire, plyers/scissors, time, and a 'soft' touch (they rip easily, so its important to be very gentle)
Lay out 5-10 (depending on how big/full you want them to end up) layers of tissue paper, and fold like an acordian in apporx. 5cm folds
Cut about 7cm of steel wire, and wrap this around the centre of the folded tissue paper
Cut the ends of the tissue paper, either round it off or dogtooth/triangle the ends (depending on the effect you want)
Very very carefully (take your time with this) seperate each layer of tissue paper and fluff out... once you have completed one side, move to the other...and then you're done! Yippppeeee
Lovely arent they!
