*commences moonwalk* “ABC/As easy as one two, three/as simple as do re mi/ABC/One, two, three/Baby, you and me” *terminates moonwalk*

Yeah, that’s basically how simple this garland is. And it’s super cool. Super cool. (MegaMind movie reference.)

1. Get this stuff together. (I’ve made these flowers using wrapping paper and a variety of other materials, so just mess around to get the look you want!)

2. Cut the tissue and other papery stuff into squares and layer them together. I recommend 5-8 layers.

6. Overlap the string and leaf and place it on the backside of the flower. (The leaf is optional, but I had some lying around and wanted to use them!)

Aaaand, there you have it! Make sure to hang it up somewhere pretty!

I had originally planned to hang it up in my bedroom to replace the summer flower garland I had made, but when I walked through the house with it, my mom intercepted it and said it would look better in the living room. So I guess I need to make another one now. Good thing they’re so easy!

I’ve also made these flowers to use as gift wrap decoration. They’re so versatile!
