DIY Tissue Paper Flowers

Hello Crafters! It’s Erin, back again from The Blue Eyed Dove. My sister is getting married this June and we are in full wedding festivity mode! Earlier this month we threw a bridal shower for her and decided to go with a bubbly, sparkly and floral theme. One of the highlights of this party was our Mimosa Bar. {That is of course where the “bubbly” part of the theme comes from!} We decked the bar out with a sequins gold table cloth and made several tissue paper flowers to create a focal point above the bar.

Hello, My Crafty Spot readers! It’s Erin again back from The Blue Eyed Dove.

We have reached one of my favorite seasons of the year…wedding season! This June my sister’s best friend is getting married, so you know what that means…we hosted a bridal shower. I’m a sucker for a good themed party and this shower was unlike any we have ever thrown in the past {think nautical-inspired with a colorful twist}. For this month’s craft I thought I’d share an easy DIY banner that I made for the shower.
