If you’re avid readers of Bespoke Bride you’ll know that we’ve been busing painting and decorating lately, ready to move into our new office! (eek!)

We’ve also been trying our hands at a spot of DIY and let me tell ya…we’re not half bad at making pretty little decorations to lavish around our new space! In fact…we loved these mini tissue paper flowers so much that we wanted to share with you how to do it!

Scissors at the ready!

You will need: 

 Tissue paper
 Flower wire
 A milk bottle (or a vase of your choice!)

Cut out 4 rectangular pieces of tissue paper and layer them on top of one another,
you’ll need to measure them to 2 1/4 ” by 3 1/2 “.

Next, fold the tissue using an accordion fold (see picture below)

Once you’ve finished folding, pinch the tissue together and turn it on it’s side. You now need to cut where the lines are. We’re going to cut round edges on ours because they tend to look more delicate, but pointed edges look pretty funky too! Make sure that you do not cut all the way through the middle of the tissue either!

You will now need to take your flower wire (in our case we used 3 pieces and wrapped them around each other to make it stronger) and create a loop around the center of the tissue where you made the slits. Twist the wire around each other and make sure it’s secure.

Next (the fun part!) unfold the tissue! Pull the first layer up, then gradually do the same with all of the other layers.

Now place your pretty tissue paper flower in your milk bottle (or vase!) and move onto making your next flower! We chose a colour scheme of pink and white because we felt that 2 or 3 different colours work best!

Happy DIY’ing!
