03 Feb DIY Tissue Paper Tassel Garland
Recently I had the opportunity to participate in a bridal event through one of my clients. We wanted to make a big darling adorable splash with our vendor booth and thought a Tissue Paper Tassel Garland was exactly what we needed to pull it together. Unfortunately for us the Etsy shops we wanted to order from could not get it to us in time. So DIY it was. We found many tutorials on the interwebs but found this adaptation from HGTV to be the easiest. Scroll on…
This tutorial shows you how to make a larger version big enough to dress the front of a buffet table or stretch across a wall, but you can easily scale down the project. For a version small enough to add flair to your dining chairs, use 1/8 sheet of tissue paper per tassel.
Fold a piece of tissue paper in half and in half the other way. Cut strips towards the fold to create fringe, leaving about 1 inch uncut at the fold line.
Once all strips are cut, unfold the tissue and cut in half so you have 2 sheets with fringe (to make 2 tassels).
Unfold tissue paper. Begin rolling tightly down the middle crease. Continue rolling, fold in half and then twist to create a loop for hanging.
