Spring tissue paper wreath

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!)

    Oh I love it and I suppose any color or pattern would work.

  21. Carey March 19, 2010 at 3:13 am #

    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.

    I really like this – it is one of the best paper wreaths I have seen – good job!

  26. Tausha March 23, 2010 at 12:09 am #

    this is darling! I wish that I could have one on my door-but unfortunatley-utah weather does not make this great idea. Oh how I covet covered porches!
    BUT-this is a great idea for inside my house!
    Thanks for the great inspiration!! You rock! (as always)

  27. MaryJanes and Galoshes March 23, 2010 at 4:19 am #

    This is striking, I love it! Looks a lot like a feather wreath I made once. I will have to make this!

  28. Stacey Gibbon March 23, 2010 at 5:29 pm #

    I did something similar to yours but with a coat hangar! Love yours

    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!
    p.s. your header is great!!! it totally is making me want to look at more of your blog…love it!

  30. Sharlotte March 23, 2010 at 10:08 pm #

    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.

    This project is adorable and seems like it's pretty easy. Thanks for sharing!

    This is beautiful. I have a few of those frames I purchased for pinecone wreaths but were not deep enough. Now, they won't go to waste. Thank you for sharing.
    I am new to your lovely blog via The Blessed Nest and will be returning.

    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?

    • Sausha @ {Sweet Pickins} March 17, 2012 at 1:16 pm #

      i made sure when i bought the tissue paper i picked one that was a bright white, there were some papers that were an off white, so i made sure i didnt get those!!

  37. tia March 16, 2012 at 3:39 pm #

    Also just one more question wondering what size your wreath form was?

    • Sausha @ {Sweet Pickins} March 17, 2012 at 1:17 pm #

      no idea! and its not to a spot where i can get it now, but im guessing probably about a 16 in circle
