Simple Minty Green Scrunched Tissue Paper Tree

To be very honest, I don’t usually decorate for St. Patrick’s Day 😖. Even though I truly am an Irish redhead, we don’t really celebrate as much as we use to back in the college days. Believe it or not though, I do love beer and Reuben Sandwiches are my favorite, but I don’t need March 17th to roll around to enjoy those. This pretty Irish/St. Patrick’s Day Green Scrunched Tissue Paper Tree just kind of happened by chance this year. Let me explain…

Simple Minty Green Scrunched Tissue Paper Tree

Last week, when I shared how we transformed our tiny dormer space upstairs, I mentioned how our college age kids are home with us doing their classes virtually during the pandemic.

Well…this is the room they spend a ton of their time working late (or chatting with friends on line). We actually call this space our Zen Lounge and it just got a makeover here. You have got to see those sliding wood doors!

I just didn’t have the heart to put this silver tree away because the kids put it on every night just like it’s a lamp. It totally sets the mood, and is just comforting, you know?

How to make a Simple Minty Green Scrunched Tissue Paper Tree

Seriously, all it took to make this minty tree look pretty was different shades of green tissue paper. Once you pick your colors (I used light mint green, kelly green, dark green, silver, and dark grey), just grab the tissue paper and pretend you’re going to throw it in the trash, but then stick it inside the tree. What I found interesting is that this scrunched up tissue paper looked almost like flowers in the tree. Can you see it?

    Thank you so much for hosting a wonderful hop and I love the idea of leaving our trees up longer than just Christmas time. Thanks for sharing.

  9. It’s wonderful that you thought of a way to enjoy your silver tree in March. The tissue paper does look like flowers!

  10. Robert Urtel says:

    We love it in NY Mom and Dad

  11. Mary Beth says:

    Your tree looks so pretty and festive, Julie! I totally understand the kids turning on the tree for the ambiance. I did the same thing when my tree was up and if my home were bigger, I would probably leave it up year-round (or close to it!).

  12. Well I literally just put my last tree don in the basement! Darn it…now I wish I would have left it up. I love your mint tree!

  13. Cindy LONG says:

    What a fun and creative idea! I’ll bet your kids love it!

  14. What a fun tree! And I’m sure your kids love it. The whole space looks like a cool place to hangout. Thank you for organizing our Thrifty Style Team!!

  15. Kristin says:

    How great to have a space like that that your kids could work in while home! I love the doors!! And what a fun idea to celebrate the seasons this tree is! I love the green jars and other green accents too!

  16. What a fun and festive St. Patrick’s Day tree! I love how you added the paper flowers. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

  17. Jane says:

    I love your tree! You are so right about the lights being comforting. I left one of my trees up for the same reason.

  18. It’s like a giant Shamrock Shake; how fun! I totally get the coziness you don’t want to take away from your kiddos; Christmas lights really should stay up all year:) And we are definitely reuben lovers all year around over here. For St patty’s day I made corned beef and that cabbage/mashed potato combo; yum! And we’re not even Irish; but we love their food!
