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.

Tissue Paper Wreath Tutorial by A Blissful Nest

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!

  2. 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.

  4. 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.
