D.I.Y. Tissue Paper Tassel Garland {a Tutorial}

In preparation for Vera's First Birthday I made this Tassel Banner inspired by Tomkat Studio.
You'll need 10-20 sheets of tissue paper cut in half to create 20-40 working sheets {your choice for how full you want your tassel or for varying lengths}
White glue {such as elmer's}
Sharp scissors
Ribbon, string, or hanging thread.
Once the sheets have been halfed into the working sheet, fold in half and cut up both sides leaving a few inches on the top as pictured above.
Open cut sheet and begin to roll the paper.
Here's  video to see what I mean.
Once rolled you will twist.
See video to see where to add a drop of glue once twisting.
All it takes is a DROP of glue to hold the paper in it's twisted form.
Use your finger to hold the space for the stinging hole, once the glue dries {almost instantly} add to string.

{above} Finished garland!

Hope that helps explain how easy this project is!  It does take a bit of time to roll and twist so don't feel bad if you'd rather purchase one off etsy.

  1. Cute cute cute! I love garlands, and DIYing things that would otherwise be purchased!

    So I don't know if you're into this kind of thing, but I just got nominated for Leibster award and now I'm nominating you. If you want to accept, here's my post on how to do it.
