2. Trim 5 pieces of tissue paper the same diameter as the center of your sun. I was able to cut two pom poms out of one section of tissue paper.

3. Fold all 5 pieces of tissue paper 1” with accordion folds. Then cut (rounding off) each end with the paper still folded together.

4. In the middle of the paper, add a twist tie as tight as possible.

5. Carefully pull one tissue paper at a time, to fluff out the pom pom.
