This week has been all about the fiesta as I am getting ready for CInco De Mayo! I know it is a month early but that’s how it goes in the ole blogging world. You really get to celebrate every holiday twice! I made my pineapple margaritas and Mexican flower drink stirrers. Now I have these easy colorful tissue paper fiesta flowers! They are super duper easy to make and you can make a ton for a party. To use for a party backdrop, centerpieces and just scattered throughout a party. These are also fun to just make with kids. My daughter and I love the bright colors and the fiesta theme is a perfect fit for us. When you are from Arizona you have to know how to throw an awesome fiesta for Cinco De Mayo.
What you need to make them:
Tissue paper in at least 3 bright colors(each flower takes three sheets)
First you will need to take three different color sheets of tissue paper and lay them on top of each other. Fold over about two inch pieces one in front then fold behind and repeat until the entire sheet is folded. Then cut a small triangle on each side of the middle. Tie a piece of ribbon around the middle, I just used curling ribbon.
Pull each sheet up gently starting with the top sheet. When they are spread out flip it over and twist the bottom piece together. Tie a ribbon around the bottom. This gives them a tighter look. If you want them bigger you can use two sheets of tissue paper in each color then just skip the tie underneath. That’s all there is to it!
I really love these color combinations. It’s fun to mix up the color patterns to give it a little extra dimension.
You also need to make some Festive Drink Stirrers for your fiesta!
