at Michael's but now that the trend has caught on there are many companies and individual Etsy stores offer their versions. Martha sells 5 poms for $20 (available in an array of beautiful colors) while Michael's sells a store-brand set of 6 white poms (zzzzzzzz…boring) for around the same price. Google "poms" and you will no doubt find many websites offering poms. If you would rather go homemade but without all of the work, I recommend the Etsy shop Pom Love. Pom Love is Run by Kirsten Hadley. I ordered a few Poms from her and was very impressed; the product was fabulous, the color selection vast, and Kirsten is so AWESOME to work with. After you purchase one of her poms she provides access to a video showing you how to open the tissue paper correctly and how to hang the paper poofs.
Pom Love sells more than just poms. They sell:
Tissue paper (remember she has a terrific color selection),
Tissue Poms Sticks:
Tissue Tassle Garlands:
For the DIYers poms are super easy to make.
This process is forgiving and you don't have to be exact but I do like the edges to be crisp so do recommend you run your hand or a bone folder every so often along the folds as you go.
Trim the ends either rounded or spiked with scissors.
