Life Love Larson: Pom Cluster

Pom Cluster

Kate’s room is coming together and I wanted to start sharing a few things I have been doing with it.  I keep seeing images of large pom clusters on Pinterest and knew I wanted to put one in one corner of Kate’s room.  Last week, I finally got all of the pieces of the cluster hung.


The pink/white balls came from my sister (she found them on clearance a few years ago).

The white tissue poms are Martha Stewart, purchased from Michael’s about a year ago.

The pink paper lanterns are a recent purchase from Hobby Lobby.


I needed a few more tissue poms, so I decided to make the pink ones myself.  You can get a full and complete tutorial at

I purchased multi-color tissue paper packs from Dollar Tree and took out the hot pink paper. 


Place 6-8 pieces of paper on top of one another and fold the paper back and forth, like a fan.


I used a pair of decorative edged scissors to give the edges some interest.


Secure the paper with floral wire, or any sort of twist tie.


Pull each piece of individual paper back towards the center until the pom becomes full.


Once I had all the pieces assembled, I gathered fishing wire and eye hooks.


I will say that hanging the cluster was not a quick process.  I decided to do this by myself, so it was a lot of up and down on the step ladder!  I was able to secure 3 hooks into the ceiling and hang each piece individually at difference lengths.  I wanted them to hang tight to the ceiling.


I am finishing up a few more projects and then I will show pictures of her whole room!

  2. You are always SO ahead of me! I've pinned these too and just bought supplies to make some fabric poms for Emma Jane's room. Your cluster looks great and I'm sure Kate loves it! Love hearing about all the projects you've got going on in your beautiful new home!

  3. We have red, orange, and turquoise pom poms hanging in our playroom...I made all of them because it's so easy and cheap and I wanted several different sizes. I just used red yarn instead of fishing line because I didn't mind it showing and thought it added some whimsy to the room. Glad to see things are coming along in the new house :)
