Tissue Paper Wreaths

For my friend’s baby shower I was looking for attractive but affordable decorations.  After searching and searching I was inspired to create tissue paper wreaths, which work quite well especially for a autumn shower. 
They’re so very easy to make…it just takes a little time.
I cut four sheets of tissue paper in half over and over again, until I had pieces approximately 4 or 5 inches.  It’s not important that the pieces be exactly the same size – a little variation makes it more interesting.
Another trick is to layer a couple of different shades of paper – I used light yellow and a golden yellow to give the wreaths more depth.
Fold the pieces accordian style, wrap with floral wire, separate and fluff the layers, and attach to a styrofoam wreath.





Here are some of the orange/peach flowers and the finished yellow wreath.
And, the final product hanging against a backdrop of sage dupioni silk.  And, of course there were lots of yummy desserts on an old drop-leaf farm table my parents bought years ago.
