If you’re looking for a quick, easy and cheap project to spruce up the walls of your apartment or room, look no further than your own backyard! With some yarn, tissue paper and glue, you can turn something as simple as a tree branch into a super-cute wall decoration.
What you need:
- A tree branch, whatever size you want
- Tissue paper – about $1 at Walmart
- Yarn – about $5 at Walmart
Step 1: Wrapping the yarn around the branch
Cut a piece of yarn and tie it in a knot at the base of a section of the branch that you want to wrap in yarn. Then, begin tightly wrapping the yarn around the branch. It should look something like this:
When you have finished, tie another knot in the yarn so that it does not come unraveled. Repeat this step on several different sections of the branch until it looks something like this:
Step 2: Making and attaching the tissue paper flowers
Lay all of the pieces of tissue paper out flat making sure to keep them layered on top of one another.
You’re going to want to use at least four pieces of the paper, but I stacked every piece that came in the pack. Then, you are going to cut the paper into different-sized circles. How big you make the circles depends on how large you want your flowers to be. I did not want all the flowers to be the same size, so I cut out different-sized circles. I only wanted three, but you can cut out as many as you feel you need for your branch. This step is really up to you.
Next, you are going to pinch the bottom of the circle into a point. This will give you your flower shape.
Then, while continuing to pinch the bottom, you are going to separate the pieces of tissue paper until it begins to look like a flower.
All that’s left to do is attach the flowers to the branch with some glue, and then you’re done!
Review: I think this project is really cute, and it was super easy. I definitely recommend trying it.
