When I started this tissue paper craft I had a vision in my mind of how I wanted it to look.
My crafts turn out the way I want them to probably about 50% of the time. I should start posting my craft fails.
BUT…I couldn’t be happier with the way my tissue paper roses turned out and how freakin‘ cute my wreath is!

I purchased the supplies at The Dollar Tree.
- Tissue paper (I opted for solid colors but for a future craft I will pick the patterned tissue paper. Super cute.)
- Glue (just regular white craft glue)
- Vines (they come with leaves on them but for this project I stripped them off)
- Floral wire
- Bird Ornament
- Construction paper
What I did was take the leaves off the vines which I had three of and then braided them together to make the base of my wreath.
I then made a circle out of the braided vine and then another smaller circle and secured it by wrapping the floral wire around it.
I made the bird’s nest out of construction paper and glued feathers all around it.
I then attached the three kinds of paper flowers made out of both tissue paper and construction paper.
The construction paper flowers are the purple, yellow and pink. Here is an image tutorial that shows how to make the easy paper flowers. (I have searched and searched trying to find the source of the images to give credit but it seems the images have been used many times over, if you know the source please advise. xo)
The tissue paper flowers are the green and white. I have made my own images to show you how to easily make tissue paper roses.
How to make Tissue Paper Roses
You can use different pressures and paper sizes until you get the paper flowers the way you like. I used both double sheets of tissue paper and single sheets and prefer using just a single sheet per rose.
I made this for my step mom while visiting this week. Her favorite color is yellow.
