Tissue Paper Flower Party Lights Tutorial

DIY Tissue Paper Flower Party Lights:  Tutorial by Grow Creative

One of my favorite things about summer is eating and visiting with family outdoors.  I created these colorful party lights for a recent family party we had and they really added to the atmosphere.  Plus they were easy and cheap to make!

Tissue Paper Flower Lights Tutorial:

Materials:
A string of LED lights: white or colored, I used my Christmas lights and they worked great.
Tissue Paper
Large Flower Paper Punch or Scissors
Stapler
Pen

Step 1:  Make some mini tissue paper flowers.  The basic steps are shown below.  For full instructions on these see my Mini Tissue Paper Flowers Tutorial.  If you don't happen to have a large flower paper punch, you can cut circles out with scissors.

Step 2:  Use a pen to poke a small hole through the center of your flowers.

Step 3:  Attach the flowers to the LED lights by putting each LED light bulb through the hole in the flowers.

Safety Note:  Please only use LED lights for this project since they do not produce much heat.  Tissue paper is flammable.  Regular lights may be too hot for this project and have a chance of lighting the tissue on fire.

All done! Hang up your lights and enjoy your party!
