So, once again, we must improvise.
These poofies from momadvice.com inspired me. Of course, I'm not making mine pink. I already get in enough trouble when I make my son watch Clueless and sing Madonna. Heaven forbid he have pink poofies in his room ;-)
Here's what I did.
For the large poof, I took 10 sheets of tissue paper out of their package, unfolded them, then refolded accordion style. Be sure to crease your folds. --For the two small poofs, I cut 2 large sheets in half to make 4 smaller sheets (that's all I had -- oopsie -- a tad under prepared and over-excited).
Then, I wrapped and tied the middle with the ribbon I planned to hang it with.
Next, I separated each sheet from the other.
I forgot the rounding of the edges step on my big poof...yes, I was rushing.
After that, I carefully poofed each sheet. A few sheets were sacrificed by my hastiness.
And finally, I hung them above my little guy's changing table. Nice.
Yet another quick, inexpensive craft that you can even do half-assed and it still looks pretty neat. High-five.
