Punched Tissue Paper Fans DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

I’ve seen a lot of really beautiful paper fans used as party decoration and photo backdrops. So, I wanted to try and make a hole-punched version which really lets the light through and looks so festive and pretty. I used good quality tissue paper, and had fun trying a variety of different patterns with my hole punches. I love how the final pattern looks a little like eyelet!

Water Bottle Chandelier

I’ve wanted to make this chandelier for a few years now so it was especially fun for me to make this project. I first saw water bottle flowers on Magpie Design Studio’s amazing chandeliers. Then I saw a display in Anthropologie a few years ago that used them. They are so easy to make and I love that you are reusing the plastic water bottles. This would be perfect for a party or even just for your living room! See full instructions and more photos after the jump.
