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. 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?

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

  3. 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!

  4. 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!!!!

  5. 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!

  6. 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!


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

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

  9. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. 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! 🙂

  12. 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?
