I'm late, but I’m here as I promised I would be to tell you how to make my Tissue Paper Rosette Wreath. This project will cost about $5 if you play your cards right. While super simple to make, it will take you a few hours to put together as you do have to make a lot of rosettes.
Here’s what you need:
- Tissue Paper (I bought the 20 sheet pack at Target for $1.69)
- Styrofoam wreath
- Glue gun and glue sticks
- Ribbon (about 1 yard) or other trim
Here’s what you do:
Step 1: Cut the tissue paper into 2 inch strips. I used my rotary cutter and guessed at the width. It doesn’t need to be precise.
|Cut 2 inch strips of tissue paper.|
|Tie a knot at one end.|
|Start winding the tail around the knot.|
|Gluing the rosettes onto the styrofoam wreath.|
Repeat Steps 2 and 3 until the entire wreath is covered in rosettes.
Step 4: If you have any gaps, wad up a small piece of tissue into a ball and glue in place in the gap. Repeat this step for all gaps.
Step 5: Add a ribbon or other trim to your wreath.
I think this would look great made out of fabric scraps! There’s a project for another time.
