Jessica at Happy Together constantly amazes me with her creative ideas in the areas of decorating, fashion, accessories, and sewing. She does amazingly cute (and frugal) decorations and flower arrangements for events like wedding showers. She made these Martha-inspired tissue paper ball hanging decorations for a recent shower, and when I requested a tutorial for them, she obliged. Thanks so much, Jessica!!

These are a great example of my ideal dollar store decorations: handmade, extremely inexpensive, simple, and with big impact. You can use these for any festive occasion: parties, showers, celebrations, holidays, etc. You can vary the size and color according to your needs.

Project Estimate:

  • Large sheets of tissue paper (10 for large ball), $1 for package
  • Pipe cleaner, $1 for package
  • Fishing wire for hanging, on hand
  • Paper clip for hanging, on hand (optional)

Total: $2 for a bunch
