Happy Spring! And even more exciting, welcome back to our new photobooth backdrop series — I’m loving dreaming up ideas for this thing! Today we’re celebrating Spring with some pretty scattered tissue paper flowers. I think they kind of look like a cross between tulips and poppies. But whatever they are, they’re lovely! And this particular backdrop would be perfect for decoration at a shower or a wedding. Wanna know how to do it? Gather your materials:
- tissue paper sheets
- masking tape or glue dots
- a blank wall
Start by cutting your tissue paper into sheets that are 20″ by 10″. Fold them accordion style, and cut one end into a rounded shape with your scissors.
Unfold the tissue, and at the square end, gather the tissue together by crumpling it slightly. Fold a piece of masking tape around itself so that it’s double-sided, and place it on one end of the crumpled tissue paper. (You can also use large glue dots for this — I preferred masking tape for this project.) Stick the opposite end to the other side of the masking tape so that the paper forms a flower shape. Mold the paper until you’re happy with the shape of the flower. Now make a bunch of these!
After your flowers are all made, start placing them on the blank wall with rolled masking tape or glue dots. Decide on your pattern and continually step back to see your progress. I preferred a scattered look, but this would also be beautiful with a solid wall full of flowers.
Now have fun! How pretty would this be behind a dessert table, too? It’s kind of somewhere between photo backdrop and art installation. Happy Spring! xoxo
