I know there are many tutorials for this type of garland, but I thought I’d throw mine into the mix as well. It’s pretty cute, if I do say so myself! It is now hanging in my boys’ room!
- tissue paper (one piece of tissue paper makes 4 tassels)
- hot glue gun
- string (for hanging it up with)
First of all, unfold and lay out your tissue paper.
Then fold it in half length-wise one time (just like I wrote on the picture…I’m used to repeating myself, I’m a mom :))
Cut that bigger piece in half. Now you have 4 pieces that are about the same size.After all the cutting is finished, roll and twist each of the four tissue paper sections so it looks similar to the picture below.Then, make a little loop with the twisted part.Put a little dot of hot glue on there to keep it altogether.Then you’re all finished…with one of them! Make as many as your heart desires! They are pretty fast and easy to make.
After you are finished making your tassels, just string them onto string, ribbon, or twine. I used a little piece of tape to keep mine in place on the string. Then hang it up and admire your craftiness!
Let me know if you have any questions about this and thanks for doing a little bit of crafting with me!
