To make the Pom Pom drink straws, you’ll need:
Paper Straws

Cut 2.5″ strips of the tissue paper. You can cut multiple strips at once. Cut fringe into the strip, leaving the last 1/4″ or so intact.

Put a thin line of glue down the uncut end of the fringe.

Roll the fringe onto the straw, fringe-side-up, with the fringe extending no further than the top of the straw.
