  • Cardboard or Foam Board
  • Marker
  • Measuring Tape
  • Scissors
  • Thin galvanized wire, or floral wire
  • Tissue Paper
  • Tape or glue


Number Cutting

  • Take your piece of cardboard and mark off 12 inches
  • Outline your letter or number in the 12 inch space
  • The flowers are 4-5 inches wide, so the number can be anywhere from 2-4 inches wide
  • Carefully cut out the cardboard number
  • Set Aside

Tissue Paper Pom Pom Flowers: Adapted from Martha Stewart

  • Take 6 sheets of tissue paper
  • Apply an accordion fold in approximately 1 inch increments
  • Once completed, cut tissue in three segments
  • Pick up one accordion folded segment, wrap wire around middle & twist closed
  • Cut end of tips in a rounded shape if desired
  • Separate layers and pull one at a time
  • Only pull and bring out to ONE side

  • Flower will be flat on one side
  • Repeat until all flowers are complete, depending upon your number or letter, the amount you will need varies
  • 8 flowers were used for the Number 3, 11 flowers for Number 2, 9 flowers for Number 1

Before attaching flowers, arrange appearance on number. Variations may occur in the flower sizes and the numbers are different sizes, so you will have to carefully place BEFORE gluing or taping. Attach flowers using tape or glue to the cardboard letter and you are complete!
