>Spring tissue paper wreath

, ,


I wanted to make a fun, easy and springy wreath for the front door.  I was inspired by other tissue paper projects that i have seen and decided to give it a try.  It turned out so very cute, it is so big and fluffy and definitely looks fresh and springish…now i want one for every room in the house, its that cute :)

You will need a wreath form (i used a wire one), some tissue  paper, thin wire and hot glue

Take the tissue paper and cut down to size, i cut them out to the size of an envelope and used that as my template – then i layered about 10 sheets on top of each other for each “flower”

Fold each stack accordion style

Then with scissors round off both ends and cut a slit from both sides right in the middle

Next, take thin wire (maybe about 2 inches long) and wrap it around the middle of where you cut the slits and tighten on the back

Then start separating  all the sheets and fanning them out

Last i took all the “flowers” that i made and tied them on to the wire form

They did slip around, so i hot glued a little dab on each tie to secure them

Last thing to do is fluff up the whole wreath so you don’t have any thin spots and wa-la, so cute – I LUV this wreath.  This would be so cute in some pastel colors or for a little girls room…
