I'm a big believer in creating DIY party decor that is fast, easy=, and inexpensive. And why do I believe that? Because if it's all three of those things, you're more apt to do it!
This is why I'm happy to share this 2016 tissue paper graduation party decor craft. It's simple to make, fast, and won't cost an arm and a leg, but the best part is that it is a show-stopper. Plus, you can customize the colors any way you like! We created this one in gold and black because those are the on-trend graduation party colors right now.
2016 Tissue Paper Graduation Party DecorMaterials:
- Foam board
- Black tissue paper
- Gold tissue paper
- Xacto knife
- Fast drying glue
- Washi tape
- Mason jars
- Floral foam
Using the Xacto knife, carefully cut out the numbers from the foam board.
Cut the tissue paper up into 1 inch squares.
Take a piece of tissue paper and gather or “pinch” together at the bottom.
Dip the bottom into the glue and press against the cutout number.
Alternate the colors until the entire number is covered.
Hot glue the dowel to the back of the numbers.
Cut a small piece of floral foam and stick the bottom of the dowels into the foam. This will help your numbers stand up straight! Place the dowel into the mason jars. Fill jars with confetti to cover up the green floral foam.
Add some decorative washi tape to the mason jars to dress them up.
Aren’t they cute!?
Tip: Squish the tissue paper together to create a more “even” look.
