I made this super cute and super easy wreath for my mom for Mother’s Day!
What took the longest was cutting out circles from tissue paper. But my 3 yr old had fun throwing around all my scraps. If my calculations are correct, I cut out about 200. Be smart and cut out stacked tissue paper, like 2-6 sheets at a time. I traced an empty tape roll about 3 inches in diameter, but you can do any size.
You will need:
1 foam wreath (dollar store $1)
Tissue paper of any color (dollar store $1)
Straight pins – I got a box of 175 and used almost all of them. (walmart $2.75)
I just put a straight pin into the middle of each circle and placed them close together. Then I started filling in the spaces. The more you do, the better it is. You can even crinkle them or cut them into a different shape if you wanna mix it up a bit. I even did 2 different papers at a time to fill in the spaces. It was pretty quick to assemble – about 20 minutes!
I imagine making more with a more thought-out color scheme… all pastels for a baby’s room, red/orange/yellow/brown for fall, Christmas colors, and definitely red/white/blue for the Fourth of July!
And when you’re done, you can do other silly stuff…
(hmmm… not so thrilled…)
When you make yours, be sure to show me!
