I wanted to make a fun, easy and springy wreath for the front door.  I was inspired by other tissue paper projects that i have seen and decided to give it a try.  It turned out so very cute, it is so big and fluffy and definitely looks fresh and springish…now i want one for every room in the house, its that cute :)

You will need a wreath form (i used a wire one), some tissue  paper, thin wire and hot glue

Take the tissue paper and cut down to size, i cut them out to the size of an envelope and used that as my template – then i layered about 10 sheets on top of each other for each “flower”

Fold each stack accordion style

Then with scissors round off both ends and cut a slit from both sides right in the middle

Next, take thin wire (maybe about 2 inches long) and wrap it around the middle of where you cut the slits and tighten on the back

Then start separating  all the sheets and fanning them out

Last i took all the “flowers” that i made and tied them on to the wire form

They did slip around, so i hot glued a little dab on each tie to secure them

Last thing to do is fluff up the whole wreath so you don’t have any thin spots and wa-la, so cute – I LUV this wreath.  This would be so cute in some pastel colors or for a little girls room…

    It turned out great – I think I am going to have to make one of these for sure. And it would be super cute in my daughters room as well!

    I just can't believe you made that out of tissue paper! What a great project! If I weren't such a klutz, I would totally try this but tissue paper and me don't mix well (can you hear it ripping in the background? LOL!)

    Way cute! When I was a kid I helped make a parade float for my Grandma's business with thousands of those little paper flowers! Brings back memories, that's for sure.

    this is fabulous!

    love this idea! i am so going to copy you. i always have the hardest time finding those type of wreath forms – tho. i don't know why – they seem to always sell out around here.

    thank you so much for coming to the party & linking up with the spring fling!
    it was a pleasure having you!

    happy spring!

    Oh, I love this! It's so fresh and clean…perfect for spring! Thanks for the tutorial, you made it look really easy to do. I think I might use off white for my home! Can't you just see this in pastels for Easter? Too cute! Thanks for sharing.

    Loved this wreath gave it a try but it doesn’t look as white as yours! Im wondering if thats just the picture you took it looks a little more muted cause the tissue paper is kinda see through?
