So I've recently discovered the pure blissful-ness (for lack of a better word!) of tissue paper. Tissue paper is inexpensive and found everywhere. What more could you want? : )
Here's a recent project:
The possibilities are endless with this quick and easy tutorial.
Wouldn't this make an adorable Valentine's wreath? Or a maybe a hanging flower ball? Oh, or a flower filled tree?
Here is how you do it.
You will need:
-Styrofoam ball, wreath, or tree (I did a Styrofoam ball cut in half that I stuck in a ramekin.)
-tissue paper in color of your choice
-straight pins you know, the ones with the colored ball on the end (these will be the flowers center so pick a color that coordinates with your flower)
Cut tissue paper in small flower shapes. I folded the tissue paper and cut out a ton of flowers at once.
Layer three tissue flowers on top of each other then poke the pin through all three layers.
Poke the pin and flower into the Styrofoam ball or wreath. Repeat, repeat, repeat until desired fullness is achieved.
Now, wasn't that easy?
Here's an action shot:
