Paper flowers in trees

A beautiful wedding we recently attended had paper flowers hung in the trees and they looked gorgeous. Today I made my own paper flowers to decorate the garden for Summer entertaining! They are easy to make. You just need tissue paper, split paper pins and scissors – a great mini project.

My inspiration

Cut your tissue paper into squares, about 7 inches wide. Then, fold the square into a triangle, then the triangle into another triangle!

When your paper is folded like this…

Unfold the paper and you will have lots of flower shapes. Pile 8 of these shapes on top of each other and push a pin through the centre. I used 6 flower shapes of this size and two smaller ones at the top and bottom of the stack.

They look best scrunched up a bit – especially the middle. Hang in the trees to brighten your garden. Perfect for after work BBQs in this amazing weather. Jane
