{DIY} Tissue Paper Flower

Need some quick, simple, elegant decorations?  
Try this tissue paper flower!

Tissue paper
pipe cleaner

Step 1:  Cut 8 squares of tissue paper at 6".
Stack them on top of one another, then fold accordian style.
Step 2:  Twist a piece of pipe cleaner around the center.

Step 3:  Pull the first two layers up, and scrunch them down over the pipe cleaner - creating the center of your flower.

Step 4:  Gently separate the rest of the layers, pulling them up toward the center of your flower.

Step 5:  Snip the last three layers in half.

Arrange the petals until you are satisfied with the shape, then place in a vase!

  1. Aghhh! Where were you on Thursday night?!? I needed to make decorations for the preschool end of year open house---I drew a blank---and resprted to really ugly balloons.

    These flowers would have been so cute. BUT we are having a family dinner over here tomorrow so I think I'll try to make these for then.

    Thanks for sharing!
