Giant Tissue Paper Flowers Made Easy
This Giant Tissue Paper Flowers Made Easy project from Savannah Starr is the perfect way to boost your mood. You'll find it impossible not to smile when you're making tissue flowers like these. Choose your colors and transform that tissue paper into blooming blossoms easily. Learning how to make tissue paper flowers has never been easier, thanks to these craft instructions. Use these giants among crafts as a party decorations or as a way to spruce up your home.
- 20" x 30" tissue paper (non bleeding tissue paper is the best - the cheaper tissue papers can quickly lose their colors when exposed to light) colors and patterns of your choice - you will need two sheets for each flower
- Smooth sided pencil (or pen)
- Chenille stems (one for each flower)
- Wire cutters
- Optional: Aleene's Tacky Dot Singles
Stack two pieces of tissue paper together and fold in half lengthwise.
Cut along folded edge.
Fold in half crosswise. Fold in half again and again until you have folded your tissue down to about 1" wide. If needed, use smooth edge of pencil to get crisp folds and be sure to try to keep your edges aligned.
Open tissue back up and accordion fold (using folds as guide lines) from one end to the other.
Fold in half and secure at center with chenille stem.
Cut ends to point.
To make a fluffy flower, very carefully start to peel back each layer of tissue, pulling it to the center (where the chenille stem is). If you accidentally tear the tissue, don't worry! Keep going.
Carefully fluff out all the tips of the flower petals.
If you want to attach your giant tissue flowers to the wall, cut chenille stem wire to approximately 2" and fold back.
Apply several Tacky Dots to back of flower and attach to wall.
- Or, leave the chenille stems in place and arrange your flowers in a vase.

This is such an easy and fun idea for when you have a party and want to make a bunch of really cool decorations, but you are on a budget. I love that you can make them as many different colors as you want, or you can make them a single color. Thanks for sharing how you make these because I love them!

While I just love the idea of homemade tissue paper flowers, somehow I can never get these right. In this pattern above, I wish that she would have included step by step pictures. I have looked at a few different tissue paper flowers on this website and I do like these the best. But I need help making them!

Were you put in charge of a party or you are having one and do not know where to start? How about some giant flowers. Tissue paper flowers that is. These looks so fun and can be used on a table or a wall decoration or as a bouquet for a baby shower revel in a box and guest take one home. How about a shower of guessing the baby sex by picking up a flower on the way in the shower. Even fun for a girls birthday party. Have them make their own. You can use so many different colors and even add glitter. Too big then make them smaller. A great project for so many uses.
