Autumn is a season filled with beautiful outdoor colors. Create this harvest backdrop with large tissue paper flowers to match the turning leaves and rich colored florals at the end of the harvest season. These tissue paper flowers are versatile and can be used not only for a party but around the house as well for an extra pop of color as the days get shorter. Read on for instructions on how to create these big flowers and backdrop. Let this project help you bring your creative paper flower ideas to life. Materials For DIY Tissue Paper Flowers Backdrop:
You can find most of these materials at the Dollar Tree or any retail craft store near you. Start by cutting your tissue paper sheets to the desired size.
The width of the paper should be at least half the size of the length for unfolding. If you are going for a fuller-looking flower make smaller folds and use more layers of paper. Create the petals by rounding out the two ends of the fold with a pair of scissors. If you prefer you can precut scalloped edges along with the paper prior to cutting so long as your folds match up.
Then send the outermost fold towards the center and carefully bring each layer out from there. Once you are finished carefully pulling out the petals you can use painter’s tape to attach the paper flower to the wall for a display. Add green tissue paper cut out in a leaf shape if desired.
If you prefer to have totally rounded out flowers, just use more tissue paper in longer pieces and pull both sides out towards the center working towards a middle piece in the fold that is your centerpiece. Or stick with the method above and attach two halfs of a paper flower together with twine or tape. Display on a piece of craft paper for a fun buffet backdrop.
These multi-toned oranges and pinks mixed in with gold are perfect for an autumn baby shower, birthday party, or farmers’ market themed party. You can purchase paper flowers online from places like Etsy and Amazon.
Use big pieces of paper with several layers to create bigger flowers. Or use this autumn-themed backdrop as an excellent decor piece for any event.
