Craft: Tissue Paper Flowers
When Kara turned 5 years old earlier this year we prepared lots of home made decorations. I just knew that if I bought too many balloons the kids will just run around after each other and get sweaty and so on. So…because her party theme was Rapunzel Princess I went on to my so much loved Pinterest and search for inspiration. I found lots of nice things but as I am so useless when it comes to crafting I only chose a couple of things to create with my own hands. One of the crafts is the one I am going to talk to you about today – Tissue Paper Flowers!
I bought lots of colourful tissue paper and followed the above instructions and I have to say my daughter was really happy to see them spread around our living room! I didn’t put them on a string to make a garland or in a tree like in the picture above. I simply put two together and hang them around our wall lights.
It was a big surprise for Kara when she wake up in the morning – the whole living room was already decorated for her birthday! She loves flowers of any kind and she insisted on leaving them hanged so now they are admired by whoever is coming into our house:
As you can notice from the above I didn’t actually cut the ages of them all so it’s fine you don’t do it wither. I love them in multiple colours and some looks like vegetables according to my daughter. Example the green one looks like a salad! LOL! She is right though 🙂
They look lovely! I might have to try making these!
I love your flowers. One of my fond memories of my mom who taught me to make these and used to put them on my Easter bonnet

These are gorgeous. Love the colours – I’ll bet they look lovely dotted around the living room. Crafting isn’t one of my talents ;o( but yours is :o). X
They look wonderful, really clever I will have to give them a try
So pretty, and really effective for parties and weddings etc.! 🙂
Oh these are so pretty!

What a brilliant yet simple idea. These look fantastic I think I will have to copy this for our next birthday party
ooh i like these!
Oh wow – you have NO idea how much I’ve always wanted to make those!!! I’m off to buy tissue paper right now! x
Love these, such a quick and easy way to decorate for a party x
Might have a go at making these for my kids to give to their teachers as an end-of-term bouquet
They’re beautiful! Especially the pastel colours…such lovely balmy summer colours!
These look lovely and so easy to do – might have to get the tissue out with the little girl when she gets back from school today. I am sure she would love these. Thanks for linking up to the parenting pin it party. Take care my dear. xx
