Green Party Decoration Swap Out: Try Pom-Poms Instead of Balloons!

Balloons are treated loads of nasty chemicals: ammonia, tetramethyl thiuram disulfide, zinc oxide and added plasticizers! Not to mention the harm they can cause to marine life if they find their way to the ocean instead of the landfill. So try making and hanging pom-poms from your ceiling. These look super cute and are a very affordable alternative.  Martha Stewart has a great tutorial here for how to make paper pom-poms in only 4 easy steps!

All you need to get started is:

  • Tissue paper in desired colors (8 sheets per pom-pom), by Martha Stewart Crafts, available at Michaels
  • 24-gauge white cloth-covered floral wire
  • Scissors
  • Monofilament
