Grandparent’s Day Gifts on a Budget: Tissue Paper flowers
Grandparent’s Day is on September 11th this year. Are you ready? With Grandparent’s Day, it’s really the thought that counts and you don’t have to spend a lot of money. Grandparents enjoy getting things from their grandkids! For the next few days, I’ll be featuring ideas for Grandparent’s Day gifts on a budget!
Today’s gift is a tissue paper flower bouquet ! My mother in law and daughter actually made this one when she was here visiting us last week and had a blast doing it together! So, you can make a bouquet for the grandparents and give it to them or you can buy the materials and let it be a “bonding” activity instead!
Here’s what you need to make these awesome tissue paper flowers:
-6 large sheets of tissue paper
-1 pipe cleaner
-green crepe paper (optional, we didn’t use this)
-bamboo garden stake (optional, we didn’t use this)
So, you can make this entire craft for less than $2 if you omit the crepe paper and the garden stake! We just used the pipe cleaners for the stems on our flowers!

Watch for more budget friendly Grandparent’s Day gift ideas the rest of the week!
