Make a Beautiful Valentine's Day Tissue Paper Wreath
February 8, 2017Posted by pamela |
Looking for a cool kids' craft for Valentine's Day? This tissue paper wreath looks beautiful and is easy to make for all ages, with a parent's or caregiver's help. To make the tissue paper puffs clustered on the wreath, we wrapped tissue squares around our fingers, but you can also just crumple them up, too. It makes for a fun craft for a rainy day or group activity for playgroups, classes, or scouts.
To make this craft you'll need:
- Paper plates
- White glue
- Paint (optional)
- Hole punch
- Mixed red and pink tissue paper
Cut out the middle of a paper plate, leaving at least 3 inches around the outer edge. Punch a hole in the top for the ribbon, which you'll use to hang the wreath when you're done.
If you like, paint the paper plate in a Valentine's Day-friendly color like pink. Make sure to let it dry thoroughly before you proceed any further. If you don't have the patience or time to wait for the paint to dry, just omit that step. (Once you get the tissue on it will look great.)
Cut out squares of tissue paper, each about 3 to 4 inches square. You'll need about 25 to 30 squares to make a wreath. Bunch up tissue by wrapping the square around your finger or crumpling it up. Glue tissue puffs in alternating colors around the paper plate base that you cut out in step one.
Tie a length of ribbon through the hole you punched in the top of the paper plate and hang it wherever you like for some festive Valentine's Day color!
