Flamingo-Party-Decor-DIYHow to Make a DIY Tissue Paper Flamingo

When I was playing around with making the DIY  tissue paper flamingos, I really liked the idea of being able to hang them on the wall as flamingo party decor, so I only used the pouf opened to one side for the first one. Further experimentation was needed, so I made a DIY paper flamingo with a full round tissue pouf. To make it stand, the paper flamingo was placed on a dowel rod mounted in a base, kind of like a paper towel holder.

I loved the glittery flamingo head I made using glitter paper, but if you’re in a pinch, plain pink paper will also work. This time, you do need card stock so it will have the structure to stand up by itself.


  • Pre-folded pink tissue pouf (buy it here)
  • 1 sheets 12×12 inch pink glitter cardstock
  • Black glitter paper
  • Elmer’s Craft Bond Dual Temp cordless glue gun (buy it here)
  • Elmer’s Less Mess All-Temp Glue Sticks (buy it here)

Step 1. Fluff your pouf!

Step 2: Draw and cut out your flamingo head and legs. I free form drew a flamingo, and traced the beak for the black accent. You can use a 1/2 inch punch for the eye, or just cut a circle. The legs are 1/4 inch slices of black glitter paper.


Step 4: Hot glue! Get out your Elmer’s Craft Bond Dual Temp cordless glue gun and glue the black accents on the pink glitter paper. I’ve tried tons of different adhesives on glitter paper, and nothing works quite as well as hot glue.


Once your accents are in place, nestle the bottom of the flamingo head into the folds of the pink pouf (as near to the center as you can get) and use the hot glue gun to glue it in place.


Glue the legs so they hang from the bottom of the tissue pouf. You can bend one of the legs and glue the bend in place for a little more interesting look on your flamingo.
