Brightening Your Event With Tissue Paper Flowers

Tissue paper is a popular product for wrapping gifts but there is much more to this humble wrapping material than meets the eye!

The material can be used for hundreds of craft projects and decorative ideas, including wedding décor. In this blog, we will talk about using tissue paper to create flowers and pom pom garlands for your next event.

White wedding flowers

Tissue paper flowers are easy to make and look elegant and refined, suitable for any occasion, including weddings. All you need is some white tissue paper, wire and scissors. Here’s how to do it:

Step 1: Take a few sheets of tissue paper and stack them together. Cut them in a rectangle.

Step 2: Fold the paper on top of itself in a concertina, using the same width for each fold.

Step 3: Once folded, take a length of wire and wrap it around the paper, maintaining the rectangular shape and folding the wire around it a few times.

Step 4: Cut the two ends of the paper into rounded points (these will create the “petals”).

Step 5: Open up the concertina and pull the layers of tissue paper apart.

Step 6: You can either cut the excess wire or use it as a flower stem or to tie some string and hang the flowers.

Change It Up

Want to make something more colourful? Or change the size? Whatever the affair, the tutorial above can be altered to suit. Change up the colours, make smaller flowers, change them into pom poms, use multiple colours or cut the petals in different styles – your only limit is your imagination!
