DIY: Tissue Tassel Garland

Tissue tassel garlands have been a huge party decor trend, and now they are moving into the nursery too. They’re fluffy and fun, and they fill a lot of visual space, so they’re perfect for dessert table backdrops or above a changing table. It’s fairly easy to make a tissue tassel garland—it will take a bit of time, but it’s worth the effort!

DIY Tissue Tassel Garland Tutorial

Materials: tissue paper, ribbon, ruler, rotary cutter or scissors

Fold eight to ten sheets of stacked tissue paper in half lengthwise. Cut the paper into 1/4-inch strips. A rotary cutter and a steel ruler will make this infinitely easier to do, but a pair of scissors will do the trick if that’s all you have to work with.

Tissue Tassel Garland Supplies

Take three or four of the cut tissue strip stacks, and bundle them together for a total of 30-40 strips of tissue paper. Start twisting the bundles in the middle until they are firmly held together. Continue to twist the tissue paper until you are able to easily twist it in half and create a loop at the top. Twist a few more times, and this will keep the tassel together.

Tissue Tassels

Flip the tassel upside down, and separate and fluff each of the hanging strips so the tassel fluffs up. Hold up your tassel by the looped end, and trim the bottom so all the strands are even. As a bonus, you’ll have lots of ready-made confetti for your party after this is done!

To make the garland, just string a ribbon through the eye of the tassels and hang!
