We’re back with another easy and quick paper craft tutorial! In this DIY, I show how to make giant tissue paper flowers! The flowers look best if you use two contrasting colors for the center and the petals. You can create the flowers in any color of the rainbow and use them to decorate your home, build a flower wall or show them off at your next party! And for more tissue paper projects, check out our tutorials for butterflies and pom poms, which I link below.

In this DIY, I show how to make giant tissue paper flowers! The flowers look best if you use two contrasting colors for the center and the petals. You can create the flowers in any color of the rainbow and use them to decorate your home, build a flower wall or show them off at your next party. Instead of making the petals in center in just one color, you can also layer differently colored sheets to create pretty ombre effects like we did for our tissue paper butterflies.

Materials

  • tissue paper
  • a piece of wire

Tools

  • craft scissors

Instructions

  1. Make the flower center. Fold a full sheet of tissue paper widthwise in half and then lengthwise into thirds. Unfold and cut the sheet along the folding lines so that you have six strips. Stack the strips neatly, fold them again in the middle and cut fringes, approximately two-thirds down, into the open ends.
  2. Create the petals. To make the petals, fold two full sheets widthwise in half and then cut along the fold. Layer the four sheets and fold them first lengthwise in half, then in quarters and finally into eighths. Trim the open ends into pointed or rounded shapes and unfold the sheets.
  3. Stack the sheets and fold the flower. Lay out the petal sheets flat on the tabletop and place the unfolded center strips in the middle. The petal and the center strips should have the same length. Next, accordion fold the sheets in 1 1/2 cm (1/2 in) increments. To secure the flower in place, twist a piece of wire or string around the center of the folded strip and remove any excess wire.
  4. Open the flower. Fan out both sides of the paper strip. Carefully pull up the fringes to create a puffy flower center. It helps to spread the folds apart when pulling the paper up. Repeat this step with the petals sheets. If you leave the petals standing upright the finished flower will have the appearance of a waterlily. You can also style the petals down to create the look of a daisy or sunflower.

Notes

Hang the giant tissue paper flowers

Use tape to attach the flowers to a wall. Alternatively, tie wire on the back of the flowers to self-adhesive hooks applied to the ceiling or wall. Group the flowers closely together for a very opulent look, or space them apart if you prefer a light and airy appearance.
