Hello and welcome to this month’s Creative Blog Hop where I team up with a great group of talented bloggers to share ideas based on the same theme. This month’s theme is paper so I will show you How To Make DIY Hanging Tissue Paper Flower Garland. We are having a Mexican Fiesta themed Graduation party so I went with bright colored tissue paper for this garland. It will be hung across the front of the food table.

How To Make DIY Hanging Tissue Paper Flower Garland
I have never made tissue paper flowers before and I have to say it was a lot easier than I thought. There will definitely be more of these in soft colors that I am drawn to! Let me show you have easy it is. The tissue paper was bought at the Dollar Store and worked fine for this, but if I was going to keep it up for any length of time I would probably buy it from the craft store so it has a little more weight.
Simply cut the paper in four sections. If you have good fabric scissors or a paper cutter you can cut them all at once like I did. It makes it so much easier.
You can sort colors however you like, but I chose to include all the colors to make it bright and festive! I used about 10 pieces for each flower.
Next fold it accordian style and use a piece of floral wire to tie it in the center. As I am hanging it, I attached fishing wire to each one.
You can also cut the ends to give it a shape that you like, either oval or pointy like I did. I plan to go with oval next.
Then it’s as simple as just fluffing each tissue paper out on each side! As it is tissue paper, just be careful not to tear it.
Once the garland is set up at the party next week, I will update the photo showing it hanging up. You can definitely make a bunch of these at whatever size you like in no time. Plus, you can’t beat the cost. Imagine large ones hanging from the ceiling in a little girl’s room. How about a decorative mobile made out of tissue paper flowers? The possibilities are endless!
