Start by using a paint marker to personalize your flower pot. Get creative!

Prepare the tissue paper for your flowers by cutting it into 5-inch x 6 ½ inch sections. Stack and set aside.

Fold the layered tissue paper accordion style, folding it back and forth until you reach the end of the paper 

Holding the folded stack horizontally, staple the center of the folded paper vertically.

With a pair of scissors, cut the corners of the ends of your folded paper diagonally on each corner.

Twist a green pipe cleaner around the center, about where you stapled the folded paper. Loop and twist the pipe cleaner and secure it below so that it will act as the stem of your flower.

Gently, peel the top layer of the tissue paper towards the center of the flower. Alternate this step, back and forth on each side of the flower, until all of the layers of tissue paper have been separated and fluffed.

Twist the green pipe cleaner that is attached to your flower around a small wooden skewer or popsicle stick. Add another pipe cleaner and repeat the process until you reach the end of the stick. 

Crumble a piece of green tissue paper and use it to fill the bottom of the pot.

Place flower into the center of the pot, piercing the stem into tissue paper until secure.
