DIY Tissue Paper Flowers

BEFORE 

AFTER




Since I have been home for the past month, I've decided to do some redecorating in my bedroom to occupy some time while I'm waiting for my internship to begin in June.  I had a wall above my desk that was filled with bulletin boards and magnetic boards from PB Teen.  The room felt cluttered and dated, so I took it upon myself to change that!

HOW TO: 

You'll Need:
-Tissue Paper (you'll use about 10 sheets per flower) 
-Gardening Wire
-Scissors
-Thumbtacks 

1. Fold tissue back and fourth- making it look like a fan.  



2. Wrap gardening wire around the center of the folds.  Wrap a few times for security. 



3. Cut the edges of the tissue to create texture. 



(I cut this one round- but I also made a few pointy) 

 


4.  Start to pull each sheet of tissue toward the middle individually.  

5.  Do this on both sides with every sheet of tissue and 

voil√†!! 



TO HANG THE FLOWERS: 

1. Flip the flower over and slide a piece of gardening wire through one of the existing loops. 

2. Create a small circle and twist the wire so it stays. 


3. Place a thumbtack in the circle and then press the thumbtack into the wall.  (for some of the larger flowers, I placed another thumbtack in the flower once it was hung on the wall.  This makes it more secure on the wall.
