Tissue Paper Valentine Crafts

Lots of Love Valentine Crafts


Valentine’s Day is starting to creep into our minds. Our thoughts are turning to Valentine’s parties and decorations. Our mouths are watering over thoughts of chocolates and candy hearts. I’m steering my thoughts toward tissue paper Valentine crafts.

I love working with paper, especially tissue paper. It’s fun and easy to work with and creates a great look when done correctly. You can get my chart on creating different sizes of Tissue Paper Pom Poms, too.

I started this project by creating some lovely pink tissue paper flowers. I cut my tissue paper into 10″ x 6″ rectangles and created stacks of 4 sheets of paper.

Then I began folding the tissue paper like an accordion. I trimmed the ends into rounded curves and cut a small slit on each side of the tissue paper “fan” that I created. I made sure not to cut all the way through…just a small cut on each side.

You can use floral wire, or something similar to it, to twist around the center of the tissue paper. It will hold the tissue together. Be sure to leave some wire extending from the center so that you can attach them to the wreath frame.

The last step is to carefully pull each sheet of paper apart. The paper stands out and creates the look of a flower.

I made several of these lovely tissue flowers and began attaching them to a heart made from a wire hanger.

I made a rough shape of a heart with the wire hanger and as I began attaching my flowers, I continued to shape the heart until it was even and symmetrical.

The result is a gorgeous pink tissue paper heart!

I hung my heart from a mirror in my living room. I added a cute red and white polka dot ribbon hanger.

I love red and pink and Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to use them both!

    Beautiful!! Can you tell me exactly how you attached the flowers to the wire form? Did you use the wire that you used to make the flower?

      Thanks Angie! Yes. I just made sure that the wire tie was long enough to wrap around the wire hanger too. You could also use garbage bag ties. Have a great week.

      Yes, I wondered, too, how you attached the flowers to the heart shaped wreath././Thanks..I love it.

        I used floral wire when I created the flowers and left the ends long enough to tie and wrap them around the heart shaped hanger. Hope that helps. Have a great day!
