Remember the traditional honeycomb-shaped paper decorations parents use to adorn the house with for birthday parties? This DIY fruit-shaped paper decorations tutorial teaches you how to turn those traditional tissue paper decorations into festive fruits, perfect for any summer party.

While the honeycomb paper decorations are usually available in simple shapes like circles, the blog teaches craft-makers how to upcycle the tissue decorations into strawberry, lemon, lime, grape, orange and blueberry shapes. To transform the circular paper decorations into fruits, simply purchase or reused paper decorations in the color of your chosen fruit. Then, cut and shape the paper into so that it looks like the particular fruit. Finally, use rolled green crepe paper to create steams, and glue them to the top of the paper fruit.
