Are you looking for something to brighten up your party? Nothing says summer party like fun lighting and nothing could be more true of these fun tissue paper flower lights. String lights create an atmosphere that we just can’t help but want to be in and around. When you walk into a room these flower lights give off an air of magical wonderment. These adorable DIY tissue paper flower lights will add a little something special to any party or get-together.
They were really easy to make, which is essential when you are party prepping with a to-do list that’s a mile long! One of the things I love most about this project is that it is totally customizable to match your own personal style and color preferences.
HOW TO MAKE DIY TISSUE PAPER FLOWER LIGHTS:
1. Cut a stack of tissue paper (6 pieces is great!) into a 10×10 inch square.
2. Fold them (or just “eyeball it”) and cut your square into a large flower shape. The number of petals isn’t important.
3. Twist and stagger the different layers of paper creating a full looking bloom, similar to a real flower. Stitch the middle of the bloom together with a needle and thread and leave the extra thread hanging of the back of the flower. Use the excess thread to tie each bloom to your string or lights cord.
*If you hang them on a lights cord, like we did, make sure that each bloom is not touching a light so that they are not a fire hazard.
It’s amazing how much color and light these simple tissue flowers add to any atmosphere! These are a quick and easy way to take a strand of Christmas lights and dress them up perfectly for your outdoor entertaining.
