DIY Honeycomb Paper Fruit Party Decorations

How to make: Honeycomb tissue paper fruit decorations -
This week Emma turned 8! I can’t believe how quickly she is growing up, it feels like I was organising her first birthday party not that long ago. I decided not to throw a big party for her this year, but did promise her a little afternoon tea with her cousins with a cake and some treats. I wasn’t planning on a theme or decorations, but after digging around for some paper plates in my ‘party supply’ drawer, I found some cute fruit plates which gave me an idea – A fruity afternoon tea party!

I remembered I had some old tissue paper honeycomb decorations, from our Mexican Fiesta Christmas a few years ago, which were perfect to re-purpose into fruit party decorations. I also used some crepe paper from my stash, so this project cost me zero dollars. WIN!

The beauty of tissue paper honeycomb decorations, is that they can be re-cut into different shapes. I transformed a bell into a pineapple, a drop ornament into a strawberry, and a ball into a peach. Sure you can buy them in fruit shapes already, but if you have leftover decorations from other event, this is a prefect way to reuse them in a new way.

To make a strawberry you can use a heart or ball shape as a base. I had a Christmas ornament shape which only required the tip to be cut off.

No fruity party is complete without a pineapple. I was lucky enough to have a yellow bell in my stash which turned out to make an ideal pineapple shape with a little tweak.

1/ Cut your bell decoration into an ovalish shape. I cut the rim of the bell off and turned the whole thing upside-down.

2/ Fold a large square of green crepe paper in half, then cut spiky leaf shapes from both layers.

3/ Glue the honeycomb shape open.

4/ Glue on the green leaves around the top and stretch the paper a little to make them curve. Add a new hanging string.

The peach coloured ball was easy to transform. Just the addition of a green leaf gives it the look of a peach, or possibly an orange. If you had a green or red ball, this shape could work for an apple too.
