Red, White, and Blue Paper Flower Wreath

One of my favorite bloggers, Tessa from Nine and Sixteen, made a fantastic tissue paper flower pom wreath for a shower that she hosted.  I pinned it as a reminder that I wanted to make one like it but was waiting for an occasion.  With Memorial Day and the Forth of July within a few weeks of each other, my red, white and blue wreath will  get a pretty good run. 


Tessa does a great job showing the steps of making the paper flowers.  I followed her steps except I skipped wrapping the form with cloth (because it's white) and instead of gluing my poms in place, I stuck a floral pin through the wire and stuck the pin into the form. 


I took it apart and reworked the order of the poms a few times so the pins worked best for me.  I made 4 big poms and filled in the holes with the smaller ones.  I absolutely love the way it turned out!  It doesn't go with my maroon door (my house has a craftsman style to it so the colors are a little...different.) but I still love it.  I got all of my supplies at Hobby Lobby and there is a coupon on their website!

  1. It is GORGEOUS!!! I would love to make one but worry about the humidity "wilting" the tissue paper here-- would you do a follow-up to let us sauna-dwellers know how it fares in the wet air? If it's sturdy I'm going to be a copycat! :)

    1. Yes! I wonder the same thing but think that because it's covered by a big porch, it won't fade or wilt too badly. If I know a big storm is coming, I'll bring it inside.

  3. Love it! I've made a similar wreath but glueing cupcake wrappers as the flowers. How many bags of tissue paper did you use?

  4. ugh, i want one. i bet i could make one with the leftover poms from the shower i hosted, but they are HUGE. All that's missing from the first pic are the KITTIES on the front porch!

  8. Being on an outside door in the hot and humid weather, the tissue paper might bleed or stain your door...do you think putting a layer of plastic behind the wreath would prevent this problem? Check out some of our wreath hangers and accessories at yourwreathshop.com.
