This week I made a tissue paper flower wreath for the outside of my classroom door.
I don't even think this picture does it justice, it is so pretty in person! It took a while to make all those flowers but now that it is finished, it is totally worth it.
I got the idea here from A Modern Teacher but she actually posted it on Schoolgirl Style! You can find her post here.
All you need is:
-Tissue Paper ($1 from Dollar Tree!)
-Pipe Insulation ($1.96 from Lowes, much cheaper than foam circle from Jo-Annes but that works too)
-Tape, to tape pipe insulator together
-Hot glue gun
-Rope, string, thread (anything to tie tissue paper together)
-Jewels (optional, I put them in a few of the flowers)
How to make wreath:
1. Tape your pipe insulator together
2. Make LOTS of flowers! (Directions below)
3. Hot glue flowers to pipe insulator
4. Add jewels if you want or a sign to make it your own (optional)
5. Tie a piece of ribbon around it to hang (optional, but that is how I'm going to hang it)
6. Enjoy your new beautiful wreath!
How to make tissue paper flowers:
Layer three pieces of tissue paper and cut to size. This was about 5 x 7.
Cut the ends so their rounded or pointed, makes pretty flower pedals.
Some of the flowers you could see the string tied in the middle (I folded the long side of the tissue paper rather than the shorter one) and I wasn't too fond of that look. I just found these jewels around the house and hot glued them right inside of the flowers which look much better than the string!
After hot gluing all my flowers I ended up with this!
