Tissue Paper Flower Decorations

I am what you might call thrifty or cheap, depending on if we are friends or not. When I was planning G's first birthday I wanted decorations that I could also use to decorate her half of her bedroom. The room is pretty boyish with the blue paint, airplane light and dinosaur wall slicks around M's bed. Other than a random doll and all the girl clothes in the closet you wouldn't know a baby girl also sleeps there - until this weekend.

ummmm... maybe I should fix the sheet next time.
Tissue paper flowers are insanely easy to make. Fold about 10-15 sheets of tissue paper into a fan, tie in the middle with some string, cut the ends into a round shape and floof. I hung them with the idea of making a deconstructed mobile and think that was achieved.

If you are going to do this yourself I recommend a ladder and not the balancing on the side of the crib as I did.

When M came home and saw them he said "Mom, did you see the flowers that grew on the ceiling?" Mission accomplished.

If you are looking for where I got the blankets that are pictured you should check out RockyTopDesign on Etsy. She made both and G loves them!
