How To easily Make A Tissue Flower Party Decoration

Hi everyone! Tammy here with a easy tutorial on how to create this fun Cinco de Mayo flower party decoration. This floral wreath is created with tissue paper and the Mini Bowdabra.  I love to have Cinco de Mayo parties and decorate my home with fun and bright colored tissue paper flowers. Here is how I made this wreath for my front door to welcome my Cinco de Mayo party guests.  Why not make this quick and easy flower party decoration for your party too.

8. Tie wire into a double knot on the back of the flower.

9. Fluff foil to create flower center.

10. Separate each layer and bring to center to create flower.
