Kids Craft: Tissue Paper Wreath

This is the easiest craft to do with your kids and it doesn't have to be perfect to look fabulous!  My daughter and I did this craft this morning and she's doing another project as we speak with the left over tissue paper (:

First, I cut out the tissue paper squares. Make life easy on yourself and fold the tissue paper over an inch and then again and again until you are at the end of your tissue paper sheet (you won't need a whole sheet if you are doing multiple colors).  Then just cut ALL the seams at the same time to make many strips of tissue paper.  Then cross cut to make 1x1 squares.  I hope I explained that good enough...if not tell me and I'll take pics of me doing it.

I used a cardboard circle that came in the packaging of my glass jars in my kitchen bookcase (Flour, Sugar, Pancake Jars)....SAVE and REUSE!

My daughter just balled up the tissue paper and stuck them on the glue (only put a little amount of glue at a time, so the glue doesn't dry on you)

I had a little wooden half egg that I painted purple and used ribbon to attach it to the wreath and to the picture stand. 

Now, to finish all the other parts of my spring decor....more to come
