Tissue Paper Wreath
How we did it:
- cardboard - or craft ring
- x-acto knife - optional
- tissue paper - green
- small bowl
- ribbon (for hanging)
- decorations - We used mardi gras beads
- tacky glue
Gather your materials.
Cut or rip the tissue paper into four-inch squares. You'll need about 50 squares to create a six-inch wreath.
Find two circular objects around your house, one large and one small (like a dinner plate and a roll of masking tape). Use them to trace a wreath shape on the cardboard. Then, cut it out using scissors or an X-acto knife.
Alternatively, you can buy a craft ring at a craft store.
Pour some glue into a bowl. Tightly crumple a square of tissue paper, dip a little bit into the glue, and then stick it onto the wreath shape.
Continue to crumple, glue, and stick until your entire cardboard wreath is covered.
Glue a small piece of ribbon to the back of the wreath to hang it. Then, trim the excess ribbon.
Decorate and embellish your wreath to give it some sparkle, and give it to a special someone. Have a holly jolly good time!
