How to Make Paper Flower Rings
The beauty of this craft (other than being cute) is that it is SO easy and inexpensive to make. You only need a few supplies and you may already have them on hand!
- tissue paper (shades of blue, white, and red for Sonic colors )
- gold pipe cleaners
- Optional: Pencil for drawing circles
- Fold each sheet of tissue paper so that there will be between 8-12 layers of tissue once cut.
- Cut out a 1” to 2” circle (through all layers). You draw a circle with a pencil first or just free-cut a circle. It doesn’t need to be perfect.
- Once cut, slightly fold the layer of circles in half to cut two small slits through the center of the tissue paper circles. The two slits should be about a ¼” apart.
- Insert one end of your pipe cleaner into one slit and loop it down into the second slit. Twist the remaining part of the pipe cleaner onto the rest of itself just underneath the tissue paper.
- It should already resemble the beginnings of a flower now (with petals and a gold “stem”). But you’ll need to fluff the tissue to really look like a flower.
- Start by scrunching up the innermost layer of tissue paper (the one where you looped the stem through). Continue scrunching and turning each layer individually until the flower is complete. You’ll end up with a tissue paper flower that resembles a carnation.
- Once you have your flower, wrap the pipe cleaner around your finger to create a ring shape. Cut off the excess (depending on the size of your fingers, you should be able to make 2-3 rings from one standard pipe cleaner). And twist the end around itself at the base of the flower to create the ring.
- Repeat for as many flower rings you’d like to make!
These really are SO easy to make! So, enjoy the fun craft and the movie!
