 Before we start the tutorial, enjoy a brief story behind this swing craft.

 My sister’s birthday was just around the corner. I wished to give her a special DIY showpiece craft. But at that time there was a lockdown situation in our city due to which I was unable to buy the required material to craft something creative.

I had only tissue papers, newspapers, normal paper and few colors. Initially, my family members said that you won’t be able to make any gift because you required more things for this.

 I thought a lot and finally decided to make a paper swing based on a fairy theme with the limited material. Here the paper swing craft is ready.

Instructions on Making Paper Swing

Before we get to the steps on how to make paper swing, I would like to say one thing, that as it is a big project, it would be a little difficult to explain each & every step through images.

If you are an expert in art and craft, it is okay for you. But for beginners, It may be tough. So I would recommend them to play the above video for making this swing.

Now coming back from where we started, Let’s start learning:

Step 1: With the help of tissue paper and water (Just dip tissue papers into the water and give them the shape of the tree), craft trees as appearing in the images. After crafting trees, leave them for drying.
