It seems Cinco de Mayo, celebrated on May 5th, is like St. Patrick’s Day – tomorrow, everyone will be Mexican and celebrate the day. Instead of corned beef & cabbage, we’ll all have chips & salsa (and a margarita, with salt, please). To help set the mood, I have a few quick and festive Cinco de Mayo decorations you can make, all easy enough for the kids to help with, too. For these Cinco de Mayo crafts, all you need are tissue paper and a few foam shapes.
The Tissue Paper Rose Centerpiece has topiaries covered in tissue paper flowers. I don’t think it’s a stretch to suggest that by changing the colors, this would also be pretty at a bridal or baby shower.
The same tissue roses dress up the Tissue Paper Rose Wreath.
The Triple Tissue Wreaths are made by wrapping fringed tissue paper around your wreath. You decide if you want to make just one or the trio.
Now, I confess that I had to google Cinco de Mayo to find out more about the holiday. Do you know what it celebrates? And, do you have plans for Cinco de Mayo? Please share!
Don’t forget — we have another big holiday next weekend — Mother’s Day. If you’re still trying to decide what to get mom for her special day, be sure to check out our roundup of more than 18 Mother’s Day crafts – and you might win one of two button bonanza prizes from Buttons Galore & More, too.
Happy Cinco de Mayo & happy crafting!
