I’ve got some cute Fall Tissue Paper Art to share for this month’s Thrift Store makeover! Last month I shared DIY Octopus Shell Art where I used one of the 4-pack of canvases that I found at our thrift store. So with 3 leftover canvases, I decided to use them along with a cool trick of printing on tissue paper, to create this fun art!

Fall Tissue Paper Art Directions
You start by trimming your tissue paper to about 1/2” larger (on each side) than your printer paper.
Fold over the edges and smoothly tape them down with your clear tape. I used about 3 one-inch pieces per side. Make sure you get your corners smooth, by tucking them in…
Make sure you place your tissue paper in the printer the right way… you want the image to print on the tissue paper… that is a MUST!!!
My tissue paper slide through the printer perfectly. I let it sit for a few minutes to dry completely before I remove the tissue from the paper. You want to make sure you do this very carefully as the tissue paper will tear easily.
Once I’ve removed the tissue from the paper I gently tear around the image leaving about 1″ around it.
Now it’s time for the Mod-Podge. I use a cheap foam brush and put on an even thin coat over the whole canvas.
Once the canvas is coated it’s time to lay the tissue paper on top. Now, I like to start from the top and slowly press it down and I work my way down. Now you need to be careful, you can’t lift the tissue paper up once it’s touching the mod podge, it will tear.
Then you need to put a thin layer of the mod podge on top of the image too. Be gentle.
Then it’s time to just let it dry. The time this takes will depend on how warm and dry your area is. My was dry in a couple hours.
Then it’s time to hang your beauties! Such a quick and easy way to create some seasonal art!
This Fall Tissue Paper Art was so fun to make!
