DIY Tissue Garland

These directions are for the flower garland that I made but you could easily make squares, circles or pennants…; any shape really! Ooooh snowflakes!

1. Grab a few sheets of tissue in party coordinating colors. I used about 6 sheets to create 4 –; 6′; strands

2. Fold a few sheets up until the short width is the width of your large flower (mine were about 5″;) and then cut off the extra. Cut through the folds on all sides so you have a stack of squares.

3. The extra becomes your smaller flower. Cut it square. Cut through the folds on all sides so you have a stack of squares.

4. Take a few squares (depending on scissor performance) and fold them in half. Then fold them in thirds to a point on the folded side (like a sliced pie)mmmm pie.

5. Cutting through all layers at once, cut the top into the rounded curve of one petal.

6. Unfold and you have a flower (hopefully.)

7. Repeat with the rest of your tissue squares.

8. Arrange your stacks of flowers by color and size next to your sewing machine.

9.And start sewing! Just place one flower into your machine and start and as that flower finishes slip another flower in. You can leave a bit of space between or overlap the flowers. I will overlapped even more next time. Perhaps even sew through multiple layers at the same time and fold them to create 3-D flowers.

Note: My machine did best on a standard stitch length (2.5), when I tried a (5) it started to bunch. If you are having trouble with bunching, you can pull the tissue from the back of your machine (gently) and it should stay smooth.

The strands are so light that you can easily hang with tape. They look great on windows!

This was so fast and easy and it added alot to the party!

By their very nature bathrooms tend to be the smallest room in the home, whilst the bathroom is a purely functional room, that does not mean to say it cannot be a room that can be enjoyed. If you do have a small bathroom, with careful planning and use of correct colours, you will find that you will be able to make your bathroom appear actually larger than it is. With the use of better lighting and making use of the most recent innovations in bathroom technology, you will soon have a bathroom that is pleasurable to be in.

*rrriiiiiiip!*The front pocket in my favourite pair of jeans just ripped after I put away my wallet. As I fumble the contents from the ripped pocket to various other pockets I realized that this particular repair has never come up for me before. I figured that replacing a jeans pocket would be a fun project to share.After?some?brainstorming and seeking the advice of an expert seamstress I was able to fix my ripped pocket with a new, fun patterned fabric pocket.Here's how I did it!
