DIY { Tassel Garland }


With the Stock the Bar Party coming up in March, I wanted to make some of my own decorations. I found this on Pinterest and thought this would be perfect. It is currently hanging in my living room until the party. 

You will need...
Tissue Paper
String
Scissors
Hot Glue Gun




1. To begin, fold your tissue paper in half and cut down the middle. This will make it so you have more "tassels" to work with - 1 piece of tissue paper, makes 1 tassel

2. Then fold the tissue paper in half and begin cutting strips towards the fold leaving about 1 inch from where you cut to the fold.


3.After all the strips have been cut, unfold your tissue paper - but be careful not to tear it!

4. Begin rolling your tissue paper, tightly, down the middle - the fringe may get tangled at times just run your fingers through it to make it not tangled.

5. Fold in half to make loop to hang on string.


6. Hot glue the loop together to make the tassel stay together. Then put on rope. Repeat steps until you have the amount of tassels on rope you desire. 



And there you have your DIY Tissue Paper Tassel Garland. It does take a little time but the end product is totally worth it!

Also, I am being featured on the Blogger Collective today!
