Tissue Paper Flowers

This is a decoration I made for a Valentine's Day party this year. The vase is made from a drinkable yogurt container. I hot glued on a red ribbon around the middle and hot glued on a bow. I painted the top to give it a little more color.

The flowers are made from 3 squares of tissue paper cut in the shape of hearts. Then put a green pipe cleaner through the bottom of the hearts and fan out the tissue paper so they look like petals of a flower. I bent the top of the pipe cleaner so the tissue paper wouldn't slip off the top. Then I put a piece of tape underneath the petals. You can put a little rock in the vase to weigh it down so it doesn't tip over on your table.

I did something similar for easter for all the aunts and grandmas. I used the big container from flavored coffee creamer. I took off the label washed and dried it. I did not use the lid. I had left over colored tissue paper that I pulled into pieces and used white school glue mixed with water and appied with a brush to the entire surface.

Resembling stained glass. Then I filled it with fresh flowers from our garden. My children did this project with me. They loved it. So did the grandma's and aunts.
