Activity Overview

Create an adorable Ernie Tissue Paper Pom Pom for the Sesame Street lover in your home. These crafts are fun to make and are a twist on a traditional tissue paper flower or pom pom technique. These pom poms make great party decorations or simply great fluffy companions to have around to play with.

Materials Needed

  • Several sheets of orange tissue paper
  • Scissors
  • Craft wire or pipecleaner
  • Twine
  • Card stock in black, white, red and pink
  • Black Marker
  • Glue Gun
  • Scissors

How to Make Them

  1. Lay 8-10 sheets of large orange tissue paper on top of each other.
  2. Fold them together in 1 inch segments back and forth, back and forth accordion style until the entire tissue paper surface is folded like a fan.
  3. Secure the paper in the center with some craft wire or a pipe cleaner.
  4. Tie a long piece of twine to the craft wire or pipe cleaner.
  5. Use sharp scissors to cut each end into a rounded shape.
  6. Gently fan the sides out and carefully pull back each layer of tissue and pull toward the center.
  7. When you are half way through the stack of tissue, flip it over and pull the layers that have not been spread yet, in the opposite direction.
  8. Fluff when finished.
  9. Next, cut two 3 inch ovals out of your white card stock.
  10. Draw one 1 inch circle in each of the ovals centered and approximately 2/3 of the way toward the top of the oval.
  11. Tilt the ovals inward slightly and glue them to the pom pom face.
  12. Then, cut a 3 inch circle out of red card stock and glue it centered beneath the eyes.
  13. Estimate the distance from the outer edge of one eye to the outer edge of the other eye and create a half circle with that diameter with your black card stock.
  14. Then create a small half circle about 2 inches in diameter in pink for Ernie's tongue. Line up the flat edges of the half circles and glue the pink spot onto the black half circle.
  15. To glue the mouth on, it is best to insert the flat side of the card stock between two sheets of tissue layer and glue in place.
