DIY Tissue Paper Flowers

By Heather Cameron


Love this DIY playroom makeover? Here’s how to create your own tissue paper flowers.




I made these large tissue flowers for my daughters birthday. It's in November so I am always trying to create a garden party in the dreary cold. These were easy and so inexpensive to make. And, now, they have a happy spot in the playroom.


I hit the dollar store and bought pretty colours that work well together. Any colors will do - use what makes you happy.





Open up each bundle, and cut them out in varying sizes. Small to large. The pale pink tissue is the entire length of the tissue. I also cut out some smaller pieces from the left over bits. I use these in the middle of the flower. I cut the ends different too. Rounded, pointy, scalloped...




Start with the smallest - this is your centre. I used about 8 pieces and just gathered them together like a bouquet. Pinching the ends together and then using a piece of tape to secure the tissue in place.




You will have a little flower that looks like this.




Then you begin to add your layers and different colours. Each time, securing with tape.




Work up, using bigger pieces each time. Eventually you will have a giant flower and you will be using about 12 sheets of tissue around the final outside of the flower.




It's done when you are happy with the look of it. Or, when it's big enough to hide your child under.




I hung mine on the walls with tape or small tacks next to a very charming bee in the playroom.
