Tissue paper and felt make the most awesome artificial flowers. And they are a super fast and easy project. Every once in a while when I’m waiting in line to pay for my groceries I will occasionally splurge on a magazine. Especially if it involves DIY and crafting. The latest issue of Do It Yourself magazine had both tissue paper flowers and projects using wool felt. Oh yeah, and a gorgeous pendant lamp made from a tomato cage, linen in two colors, and embroidery.
I didn’t have any natural colored tissue paper, but I created some flowers using some fall colored tissue paper and made a sweet table centerpiece. This would be an easy project to do with kids. I just cut out flower shapes from 8 layers of tissue paper, stitched them together with embroidery floss, and then crimped up each layer of tissue one at a time. This is the kind of decorating project that suits my time and energy. God love you people that go all out!
