Creating rad artsy fun things!
If you're looking for a fun craft to do with your kiddos or to add some homemade flair to your home, then you have come to the right
WRAPPING TISSUE PAPER FLOWERS
What you'll need:
- Pastel colored tissue paper
- Chenille stem
How to make it:
- Cut tissue paper into rectangles of desired size (5"x7" is the size pictured - see photo).
- Stack around 6 pieces of tissue paper. Use the same color or different colors. If you want a really full flower use up to 15 pieces. For the poppies that I created with Peyton here, use alternating pieces of red and hot pink with a black piece on top. For the blue flower use alternating blue colors with a hot pink 2nd to the top and a black on top (cut the pink and black pieces smaller 3"x3").
- Accordion pleat the tissue paper working from the long side.
- Wind one end of the pipe cleaner (chenille stem) around the middle of the accordion pleated tissue paper.
- Optional: Trim the ends of each side to give the pedals a unique look. Trimming the ends into a point (like a triangle), or a bump (like a half circle) will look very pretty.
- Gently separate each layer (see photo) pulling upwards toward the middle of the flower. (See photo). Do the second side. (See photo).
- Let the children make a couple of flowers and put them in a basket or put them in a vase to display. Remember it's suppose to fun!
