What a better way to welcome spring than to share a DIY post all about flowers? Fresh flowers from a florist can take up a HUGE portion of a wedding budget, so using paper flowers even for the smallest of details (invites, escort cards, napkin holders) can actually make a big difference. These tissue paper flowers are so easy and inexpensive, but when done correctly can look trendy and oh-so lovely. Surprisingly, to create these budget-friendly beauties you will only need 3 supplies:
1. Tissue Paper
2. Yarn, String, Twine, or Ribbon (depending on the look you’re going for)
Step One = Fold multiple sheets of the tissue paper in an accordion style. The more sheets you use the bigger your bloom will be. If you do not want flowers as wide as the tissue paper then simply cut out a smaller square from the sheets.
Step Two = Tie your string of choice around the middle of your folded paper. It should just fit around so don’t tie too tightly. Then cut the ends of each side of the paper so that you have nice rounded ends as seen below.
Step Three = Simply begin fanning out the individual layers of paper. Be gentle though, it is only tissue paper!
Step Four = Keep playing with the petals until your string is covered. You can either keep the flower as a large ball of petals or as seen below you can flatten one side –
The options for your homemade blooms are endless! Here are some creative ways I have found to decorate using paper flowers –
