I absolutely adore a Tissue Paper Tassel Garland, they’re definitely on trend right now and are an easy DIY for your next celebration.
Choose your colour theme and then you’re right to go.
HOW TO MAKE TISSUE PAPER TASSEL GARLAND
- With a standard sheet of tissue paper to hand fold in half long ways, then fold in half in the opposite direction.
- Cut strips toward the fold (no bigger than 1 cm), creating a bit of a fringe, but be sure to leave about 2 cm’s uncut at the fold line
- Once you’ve done this unfold the tissue paper and cut it in half, (so each half has tassels on both sides. Each sheet will make two tassels in total.
- One at a time, roll the tissue paper down the middle, do this as tight as possible, then once the sheet is rolled up fold in half so the tassels on both ends are hanging down and you’ve created a loop in the middle.
You’ve just made a tassel for your garland. Now repeat the process with your colours of preference, then thread onto a piece of twine to hang.
I find they do move on the twine and I prefer to just stick them in place with a dab of glue from a hot glue gun to ensure they’re nicely spread across the twine.
