How To Make Candy and Tissue Paper Flowers
Regular readers will have heard me admit to being a bit of a craft supplies collector and hoarder, I just can’t help myself! It’s like telling a mouse to stay away from the cheese, it just isn’t going to happen!
These gorgeous round tissue paper sheets have been in my craft cupboard for over a year…waiting for the right idea to emerge…and this lovely candy and tissue paper flower craft was it! I just adore how easy these flowers are to make and how colourful and cute they are!
We nipped to our local store and picked up some foil wrapped chocolate mini eggs to make our Easter flowers. If you want to make this tissue paper flower craft at another time of year then you can try with any other small foil wrapped candy you fancy.
Start your flower craft by adding a dab of glue in the centre of a tissue paper circle and wrap it around the end of your candy. UHU glue worked really well for us, but you could try with a glue gun if you prefer. Just make sure there is no way for the glue to come in contact with the actual candy and make sure children know not to eat the glue or tissue!
We added two layers of petals but you could add more if you fancy.
To help our flowers point outwards to create a pretty bouquet we snipped off the end of the extra wide jumbo straw at a slight angle and glued our flower head in place.
This candy and tissue paper flower craft is so cute, don’t you think. They’d make a lovely centre piece for a party or special event and of course would be a super cute homemade gift to give to friends and loved ones.
