this tutorial is super easy and can be used for so many different projects. i first made last years christmas center piece with this same technique. for that wreath i used pages from a book and added glittered birds for some sparkle.
this time i used the same concept to make a piece for the front door to celebrate the boy turning 2. here it is:
you will need a cardboard cut out of what ever shape you please, watered down glue and paint brush, tissue paper squares, and a pencil
twist paper around the blunt end of the pencil
paint a small section of glue and begin to stick the paper down using moderate spacing. continue this process until the entire shape is covered to your liking.
