I am currently on my summer break (yay!) and that means several things. One thing it means is, I finally have more time to work on fun projects like this. It also means that I am CRAVING more color in my life. Has that ever happened to you? I just have this urge to make everything I see bright and colorful.

Last week I ran into Target (which is something I frequently do) and I saw this tissue paper in these fun, bright colors. I ended up buying it even though I had no idea what I would use it for.

I ended up making that tissue paper into an adorable “E” letter with tissue paper flowers. Floral is SO in right now and I personally love it. I love how the flowers look on the letter. Adorable!

These letters are great for several things. They are perfect for decorating any space. They would also make a great party decoration or a photo shoot prop. The other great thing about these letters are that they are so versatile. You can change up the colors to make them fit for any holiday or occasion. How perfect would the letters “USA” be with red, white, and blue flowers for Independence Day?

Okay, you guys are going to love how easy these are to make.

MATERIALS:

  • Tissue paper (mine is from Target)
  • Wooden letter.
  • Scissors
  • Stapler
  • Hot glue

 

DIRECTIONS: 

For my letter I made three different types of flowers. I will show you how to make each kind below. I also made my flowers two different sizes. For the larger flowers I used 1/2 of a sheet of tissue paper and for the smaller flowers I used 1/4 of a sheet of tissue paper.

 

FLOWER #1

  • First, take your piece of tissue paper and fold it until it is roughly the size you want your flower to be.

  • Then, cut off part of the longer side of tissue paper so it is the shape of a square.

  • After, put a staple into the middle of your square of tissue paper.

  • Next, cut your square into a circle and then cut little triangle shapes out of the the edges of the circle.

  • Fluff the tissue paper until the desired look is achieved.

 

FLOWER #2

  • First repeat the steps from the first flower up until it says to “cut little triangle shapes out of the edges of the circle”. Instead of cutting triangles out of the sides of the tissue paper, cut the tissue paper into a flower shape.
  • Then fluff until the desired look is achieved.

FLOWER #3

  • Again, repeat the steps from the first flower up until it says to “cut little triangle shapes out of the edges of the circle”. This time instead of cutting the triangles cut fringe onto the sides of the circle.

Once you have created all the flowers for your letter, simply hot glue the flowers onto the top of your letter.
