Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. Celebrate by learning how to make Mexican paper flowers for Cinco de Mayo! This craft is fun and easy for kids of all ages.
I wanted to share this really tissue paper pom-pom flowers craft that you can make with your kids to add some color to your life this week.
We are going to string these in our living room and make yummy Shredded Beef Tacos in crock pot. I don’t know if it’s just my kids, but my children love a “festive” meal, even small touches, like Cinco de Mayo decorations, get them excited.
Sometimes, I let them set the ambiance, and it’s interesting what they add as centerpieces. We’ve had pirate swords, legos, and candles set out before as table centerpieces by my boys.

You only need a couple of supplies to make these beautiful Mexican Tissue Paper Flowers!
- Tissue paper
- Pipe cleaner if you are hanging the pom poms flowers(optional)
Instructions for making Mexican paper flowers
1. Fold the tissue paper in half or cut between 5-8 sheets into rectangles.
2. Then, fold them like an accordion. Staple them together in the middle.
3. Start pulling every single sheet up from one half (it doesn’t matter on what side you start) and then do the other half.
4. Each half will meet in the middle to create the crinkled flower look.
The great thing about doing this craft with kids is that it doesn’t matter if their paper gets all crinkled and smashed. It will still look like a flower at the end! Make each one in different colors to make your Cinco de Mayo decorations colorful.
Make several of them and attach them on some string to display it as flower garland.
Or, you can attach them to pipe cleaners, and display them in a vase. However you use them, they will beautify your area!
