If you are looking for some cool ways to decorate your house, then look no further then your tissue paper box. Tissue paper is a very versatile thing. It was originally invented as bandage substitute when cotton began to run low, but after the First World War ended it became a common household product. But many people don’t realize, that that simple light paper is not just for blowing your nose, but also for seasonal decorations.
Halloween is the best time to bring out the tissue paper. Tiny ghosts are very easy to make and only need a piece of string and a few pieces of tissue paper. Simple take one tissue and wad it into a ball, then take another and drape it over. Now tie the string around the tissue, this will make the ball look like the head and the overlap look like the body of the ghost. Make a couple of these and sprinkle them here and there throughout the house.
When Christmas time comes around tissue paper can be folded in half several times and then nipped in a couple of the corners here and there, then opened up again to reveal cute little snow flakes. Also they can be torn into bits and used as snow in small model Christmas villages or around the tree. It might be a little messy, but if you rip them up small enough you can usually vacuum them up. Also it is possible to wrap small packages in tissue.
For Valentines Day, the simplest thing you can do is cut the tissues into heart shapes. And pull them apart. Now you can either lay them about your counters and tables just like that, or you can dip them into red dye, which can even be food dye, and then dry them.
For Easter simply, simply cut the tissues into the shapes of eggs and white hares. You can also use your Easter egg dyes to color the tissues and dry them. Or you can color them with crayons. Just use your imagination.
You may think there is no way to decorate your house with tissues for the fourth of July, But you would be wrong. Simply cut out stars and commit looking tails, and make some fake fireworks to put up around your house.
Above all, get creative and think about everything you can do to brighten your home. Tissues are extremely versatile, and the only limit, is your imagination.
