Spooky Spider Tissue Pom


  • Eight 20" x 30" inch sheets of black tissue paper
  • scissors
  • 8 black chenille stems
  • White card stock cut into 2 small circles

1. Stack eight 20" x 30" inch sheets of tissue.

2. Accordion pleat the length of the tissue paper, starting on one of the two short ends. One long end will be a folded edge and the other will be free. Make the pleats 1 1/2 inches wide.

3. Cinch one black chenille stem around the middle of the stack of accordion pleated tissue paper and form a hanging loop out of the ends of the pipe cleaner.

4. Cut the ends into a rounded petal shape.

5. Fan out the accordion pleats and carefully separate each layer. Pull gently.

5. Fluff out all the layers into a nice rounded ball.

6. Use hot glue to add spider legs.
