DIY Tassel Garland

It's no secret that tassels are SO in right now! I've had an obsession with them since long before they hit the main stream. Today I'm going to be sharing a super easy, yet super cute DIY on how to create your own DIY Tassel Garland.
Supplies:
Various colors of tissue paper
Twine or rope
Scissors

Instructions:
Chose one color of tissue paper to start with, fold it in half "hamburger style" and then again "hotdog style." You'll then want to make cuts vertically up the tissue paper, but leaving about 1/4 inch margin before the crease. Pictured below
Once you have made all of the cuts, you will unfold your tissue paper. This can be tricky, so be gentle, after all, it is tissue paper.
 Once you have your piece of tissue paper laid out, you will want to begin rolling the tissue paper very tightly along the crease. You should have a 1/2 inch crease to work with. Pictured below
 Once you are finished rolling each piece, you will tie your twine or rope on to tissue paper. Once tied, twist the twisted part of the tissue paper together to form one junction around the rope. Pictured below
 Once you have the tassels secured to the rope, hand and enjoy! You can always add more tassels or other cute little trinkets!
All in all, this DIY Tassel Garland took me about an hour to make, so it was certainly not too time consuming, and I'd say the difficulty level was at or close to a 0! I hung my DIY tassel garland in my office above my almost finished gallery wall, but you could hang it just about anywhere. So give it a try and let me know how YOURS turns out!

    1. Yes! I saw some online that were super expensive and I knew I could figure it out on my own! Way more cost effective this way.

  7. So cute and really easy! I was going to buy a tassel strand for my desk at work but maybe I'll make one now instead — it's a fraction of the cost of already premade options!
