How To Make A Tissue Paper Flower Easter Wreath

It's #NationalCraftMonth and I would love to share a quick and easy Easter wreath tutorial with you. I love to decorate for the holidays and what is easier than adding some fun decoration to your front door! I love bling and it can be hard to find anything pre-made with sparkle on it that doesn't cost a fortune, so I have learned to make my own decor, and so can you :) 

Supplies you will need:
Tissue paper
Ribbon
Bunny Wood Cutout
Chalkboard Paint by Plaid
Decorative Garland
Rhinestone Stickers
Chalk Marker
Adtech glue gun
Adtech glue sticks

How I made it:
Start with a stack of (10) 6x6 inch pieces of tissue paper

Accordian fold the pieces together to make a fan type shape. Round the ends with scissors and tie a piece of ribbon around the center.
Peel back each layer until you have a flower
Here is a quick video tutorial:

Just attach each flower to the wire wreath frame :)
For the bunny I started with a wood bunny cutout and sanded it to make sure it was completely smooth with the Proxxon Delta Sander
and painted it with chalkboard paint by Plaid
I added some cute rhinestone stickers that I found at Michael's

I added the "Hoppy Easter" saying with a pink chalk marker

Then I hot glued the bunny in place on the wreath and added a sequin egg garland I found at Michael's. 
I love how this project turned out!

Let's be friends!
