You might remember this sweet table I styled a while ago, where I used giant pink tissue flowers (or half paper pompoms, if you will) as simple wall décor.
I call them “lazy” tissue flowers because they are so fast and easy to make. I am sure there are more sophisticated methods to do them, but this is my simple way. And here’s the tutorial:
You will need:
tissue paper of your preferred color
The tissue paper usually comes in various layers. The more sheets of paper you use, the fuller your flower will become. 5-6 sheets are fine.
Fold your paper into half and cut out half a circle. The bigger the circle, the bigger your flower.
Don’t worry about it having to be neat and even, this won’t show later.
Unfold the paper into a full circle, grab the center point…
… and twist it into a “flower”. The twisted end will stay in place just like that, no need to secure it further.
Holding the twisted end with one hand, separate the singe sheets of paper to create the “petals”. Move and turn them around until they’re distributed evenly and you have a full “bloom” (in the shape of half a ball).
Ready. Now use stick them to your wall with the blu-tack. They make a great backdrop for your dessert table or ceremony setting!
