DIY Tassel Garland {SPD}

I have wanted to try {this DIY} for a while now and I'm so glad I was able to make one for the Love Sweet Love bridal shower I co-hosted this past weekend.

It is surprisingly not as tough as it may seem. The trick is to find a higher quality tissue paper that is thick enough to not rip or tear while twisting and gluing.

{Materials needed}

3 packs of preferred color of tissue paper
twine or string of choice {make sure it is not too think so you can string it through the tassels}
hot glue gun
scissors

{Directions}

1 // Start with one sheet of tissue paper on a flat surface.
2 // Fold it lengthwise.
3 // Then, fold widthwise.
4 // Then, fold again widthwise.

5 // Cut strips into the tissue paper leaving 2 inches of space at the top.
6 // Unfold once and cut down the middle section.
7 // Unfold again and cut so you have 4 separate fringed pieces {one sheet of tissue makes 4 tassels!}
8 // Roll each piece lengthwise. Make sure not to get the fringe tangled.

 9 // Twist each tassel in the middle section and bend to create a loop.
10 // Dab a few dots of hot glue to keep loop in place. Hold in place while the glue dries for a few minutes.
11 // Line up tassels in your preferred color order.

Lastly, string and enjoy!

This red, pink and white garland worked perfectly in front of the sweets table at the shower.
