Favorite Pin Friday | Volume 6

TGIF! Last week I shared a recipe for the Churro Cupcakes I made for our Cinco de Mayo party. Today I wanted to share a quick tutorial on making tissue paper flowers which I used to decorate our front door. So fun and festive!

What you need:
  • tissue paper (bought at Party City for $4.00)
  • scissors
  • pipe cleaners (optional)
  • stapler (not pictured)
Pick 5-6 pieces
Fold them together accordion style.
Staple in the middle. Since I was attaching my flowers to the decorative wrought iron on my front door I also added a pipe cleaner.
Cut the ends to give the flower some shape, then fluff! Be gentle or the tissue paper will tear.
I'm so glad I made these because it set the tone for the party from the start. To make the smaller flowers I cut the tissue paper in half before folding.
It's not a party without a margarita!

My neighbor always has the best hats!
Until next post...xoxo Becca


  1. When I made these last month for a wreath on my door I bought the tissue paper at the dollar store. A huge pack for $1!!!

    1. Leave it to The Woodlands to not have a dollar store lol Party City was close :)
