I’m so excited to share my first holiday post with you today! I made this adorable tissue paper tassel garland yesterday to hang over the buffet in my dining room. Today I’m going to share exactly how I made it.
All you need to get started is tissue paper in the colors that you want, scissors, and string.
A couple of things to note — I ended up not using the cellophane as it didn’t work, so I highly recommend either using tissue paper, fabric, or yarn. I also decided last minute to remove the tan tassels and replace them with silver, because a lot of my holiday decor is silver. Don’t be afraid to play around with things until you get it just the way you want it!
Unfold the sheet of tissue paper so the stripes are cut on both sides. Then start tightly rolling the middle portion that isn’t cut towards the other side. TIP: Continue to untangle the tissue paper gently as you’re rolling so it doesn’t rip or become too tangled to untangle when you’re done rolling.
Tie the loop with a small piece of the string you’ve chosen. Continue those steps until all the tassels you want are made. Cut a piece of string long enough for the area you want the tassels to hang, and begin feeding the string through the loopholes you’ve made.
I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial! I’m loving the way mine turned out. What are you making this holiday season? Let me know in the comments!
