Easy Tissue Paper Crafts

Let’s just all agree that crafting with the kids is a lot of fun. Sitting at the craft table and talking about your day while making something unique and adorable is all part of the process.

Being able to show the kids that crafting doesn’t have to be complicated truly is the icing on the cake! All of the following crafts are fun for various holidays, seasons, and times of the year.

As all parents know, once the kids find a craft that they love and look forward to, they’re going to want to do that craft (or a similar craft) over and over again. That just means that they’ll be spending more time crafting, less time wanting to be on screens, and you’ll be able to showcase their artwork and creations all over the house.  

Tips for Making Tissue Paper Crafts

  • Let the creativity flow – Many times, people think about flowers or shapes when they imagine creating with tissue paper. The truth? There are so many cool things that can be made! (and you’re going to see some great examples below!)
  • Involve the kids in the process – The more that you involve them in choosing the craft to start with and choosing the colors of tissue paper, the more that they’re going to be excited about being a part of it!

What is the best glue to use on tissue paper?

It’s important to use the right glue on tissue paper, or there’s a chance that the entire craft may end up falling apart.   White glue (Elmer’s glue) is going to be the best! It is thick enough to hold everything together and dries clear so that it can’t be seen.  

What glue will not wrinkle paper?

If you’re working on a tissue paper craft that can’t be wrinkled, you may need to use rubber cement as your “glue” of choice.  

Can you use hot glue on tissue paper?

Since hot glue is really hot and really sticky, it’s advisable to use it on tissue paper in VERY small quantities. Be careful with it as it spreads quickly, and a lot of it can make the tissue paper messy fast.   Are you excited and ready to see some of the best tissue paper crafts? These options will get everyone in the house excited and ready to create!
