I love the visual effect of these flowers and it only cost me $2 to make 12! We used these to add a festive touch to are cocktail party. Initially I was on the fence about using white. Would it feel too bridal? However, the white tissue bounced back the surrounding light from the strung Christmas lights, making it a great color choice. This tutorial is for making flowers that are 20” in diameter. I also made smaller flowers to play with scale. My flowers were 20” and 10” in diameter. With 2 packs of tissue paper, I was able to create 4 large and 8 small flowers.
Read on for the full tutorial!
- -8 sheets of tissue paper, measuring 20” wide
- -1 ft of white string
Lay flat 8 pieces of tissue. [Tip: If the tissue has too many wrinkles to lay flat, use a cool iron to remove creases.]
Now take your string and tie in a knot at the midpoint on the folded tissue.
For the party: Secure to line in whatever arrangement you like. Trim off excess string once flowers are secured.
