Tissue Paper Wreath!

Mikaela made this super easy, super cute tissue paper wreath this weekend! It was an idea that I saw on Pinterest and sent to her. It uses minimal supplies, took her around 2 hours total, and can be used for all sorts of decorating!

Supplies Needed:

  • an old cardboard box or piece of cardboard {we used an Amazon box}
  • tissue paper in any color {we chose turquoise and gold}
  • hole puncher
  • scissors

Step One:

Trace a large circle on your cardboard box. Next, trace a smaller circler inside the large circle. We used mixing bowls in two sizes. Use whatever size you want your wreath to be! {You don't want it too thick, or it will be hard to punch holes in the middle.}

Step Two:

Using a hole puncher, punch holes all over the cardboard wreath. Don't punch them too close together, as the tissue paper is really fluffy!



Step Three:

Cut your tissue paper into 5 inch squares. Take the middle of a square of tissue paper and twist, making a flower shape.



Step Four:

Poke the pointy end of the tissue paper through the holes in the wreath, alternating colors. Pull tightly so that tissue paper won't fall out.



Step Five:

Enjoy your beautiful wreath!



You could use pastels for a spring or Easter wreath to hang on your door! Mikaela is hanging her wreath in her bedroom. She enjoyed this simple project - all except the hole punching part! Punching holes in cardboard is not easy. Her hand was a little sore!

  3. I've done tissue paper squares glued to cardboard before, but it took forever to fill it up with 2 inch squares of tissue paper. This project would be much faster and therefore much more satisfying for my project starter. It might even get finished. ;)
