Tissue Paper Wreath Tutorial

 I am so excited today to share this super easy diy tissue paper wreath tutorial! It really is such a simple tutorial and really does not take many materials to make.

This tissue paper wreath was my labor of love from last week’s party. Now that I think of it, I should have done it at the table rather than sitting on the floor of my Family Room, but I really wanted to watch TV with my husband too. I guess my bad back and some IB Profin are what I get for trying to accomplish 2 tasks at once. So if you sit at a table I am sure you will not get “my” bad back!

Materials Needed:


Step 1 – Take one of your 5X7 rectangles of tissue and gather it so you have a point at the bottom (as seen below). Then twist the point. Do this to all your squares.

Step 2 – Take your letter opener (or pointed object) and make a small round hole in the Styrofoam- about 1/2″ diameter.

Step 3 – Fill the hole with glue and put pointed end of tissue paper into glue filled hole. You may need to use your letter opener to get the point completely in. And that’s it!

TIPS – Just make lots of holes close to each other so the tissue will look full and close together. I put tissue on the outer sides of the foam but not on the interior as you could not see the interior after how full I had made the rest.

I have not attached my round circles with Parker’s “P” and “1” but I am going to make a big bow, hole punch a hole in my circle and thread by bow through and then hot glue to wreath. I swear hot glue is one of my best friends!! Have fun ladies!!

You could even spray your tissue with glitter spray for a light luster if you were having a fairy party!

  1. This is so adorable! I'm going to make one for Easter and let you know how it turns out 🙂

    How much tissue paper would you say you used?

  2. You know I wasn't counting, but I think it was about 20 sheets. I actually bought large reams of tissue from papermart (have you heard of them??) and barley made a dent in them so I would think you could get away with 2-3 packs of tissue from Michaels. If you girls make these please share!!!

    1. I like this. Similar to a coffee filter wreath, only easier! 🙂 Oh, and you have the male species in here also, haha. I like to make anything! Making this for Valentines with some red and white mixed with the pnk. The wife and I just made a coffee filter wreath and it was very simple, I think we can pull this one off 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration! 🙂

  3. Thank you so much for this tutorial, I was planning in making something like this for my daugther's birthday party and I had no clue how to do it.it seems a very easy project.

  4. I'm so glad that you showed us how to make this! I saw it in your previous post and thought it was beautiful. I will definitely be making one!

  5. I will have to keep this tutorial on file for my daugther's 6th bday in the fall! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Very nice! I am having a housewarming and I think I'll make one of these for the door!

  7. I love this little wreath tutorial and the take-out boxes from Parker's party. I have posted on my blog about both of them and linked back to you. I love your style!


  8. I just found your blog and am loving it! Keep up the great work! I am going to try to make (at least) one of these wreaths soon!

  9. Thank you so much for the directions on how to make this beautiful wreath. Please check out my blog tomorrow to see a picture of the one I made using your directions for a friend's baby shower. It's not as a perfect as yours, but at least I tried. Thank you again!!!!

  10. Hi, I just made this wreath for my daughter's upcoming birthday celebration. Do you still provide the circle inserts or can you tell me the size of the circle and where I can find the font for the lettering? Thank you!

  11. Hi Anonymous- I can make the circle inserts for you. Please email me at the address above and I would love to help you.

  12. Would this wreath be used as a centerpiece with a glass hurricane placed inside the wreath? And a candle…. I was thinking it would be a cute valentine's centerpiece — since you already made one, what do you think– would a hurricane fit inside it?

  19. We are planning to make the wreath for a Bridal Tea a couple of us are hosting. The wedding couple have chosen a lime green and hot pink for their wedding colors. We are making a hot pink and putting their last name initial in the center. I know you posted earlier it was a large Styrofoam, may I ask where you purchased the wreath? One the girls look at them, she thought this one might be too small, it was 12 inches. Thanks for sharing.

  21. I cannot wait to get started on this wreath! I’ve been looking for something to do over the winter and this is a great project! I’m going to do some Easter/Spring themed wreaths and also buy some foam balls in various sizes to create somewhat of a topiary from them. I’m also going to purchase some patterned tissue paper n coordinating colors and add them to the solid colored paper! So may ideas and so inspiring! Thank you for this great project! – c.

  25. I love this! I’m going to try to make this and if do, I will send you s pic of it. Thanks for posting this!

  26. I decided to try this, but instead of tissue paper I used plastic table cloths from the party section and cut them into rectangles. It looks so great, and will last a little bit longer I think. Thanks for sharing!!

  30. When I was a child we used to make white garbage bag wreaths at Christmas. We cut the bags into rectangles, and tied them onto a wire coat hanger that we had bent into a circle. I think this tissue paper wreath would work the same way. Instead of glueing the tissue paper onto a Styrofoam wreath form, just tie them onto a wire coat hanger.
