DIY Mint and Silver Tassel Garland

DIY Mint and Silver Tassel Garland

If you want to make your own tassel garland for a baby shower or your next party, I have the easiest DIY tassel garland tutorial for you. I wrote this back in 2015 when diy tassels were all the rage. I have used this one so many times from my baby shower to decorating our first nursery. So follow along this easy tutorial to make your own.

Why make your own tassel garland

Making a DIY tissue paper tassel garland is so much better than buying a premade one and here’s why:

  1. Personalization: making an easy DIY tassel garland allows you to customize the colors, length, and style to perfectly match your decor or the theme of your event. You can choose colors that resonate with you or create a garland that fits a specific holiday or celebration. You can even choose your own material whether it’s fabric tassels or a wood bead garland.
  2. Cost-effective: Buying a premade garland can be expensive, especially if you need a long one or several for a party or event. Making your own garland with a pack of tissue paper is much more budget-friendly and allows you to create a larger or more elaborate garland for less. You could even alternate between tissue paper tassels and fabric ones – the options are endless.
  3. Creativity: Crafting is a great way to express your creativity and try out new ideas. I would totally make a craft party out of it and get friends and family together to make this cute DIY project.

I know tissue paper tassel garlands have been done to death by everyone and their mom, BUT:

  • They are still pretty.
  • They are super simple to make.
  • They take party decor up a notch.
  • They make for a fun weekend project.
  • And you can even put them up as decor for your kid’s room (or even your office, if you’re feeling super festive) after you’re done with the party!

Plussss, the best thing about this tutorial is that it’s really really easy to follow (thanks to lovely bloggers Jen and Jess from Linen, Lace, & Love whose steps I found wonderfully simple unlike some others that are out there) You can’t really reinvent the wheel, right? They made it really easy for me to make this tassel garland 🙂 As far as DIY projects go this is one of the easiest ones. I chose a cool toned color scheme with mint, white and silver mylar sheets. Happy crafting!

Supply List

  • Pieces of tissue paper
  • Piece of twine about 4ft ( depending on how long you want your garland)
  • Hot glue gun/tape
  • Glue sticks
  • Pair of sharp scissors
  • Command hooks to hang the garland

Supplies Needed for DIY Tassel Garland

How to make tissue tassel garland

  1. Step 1: Lay out one sheet of tissue paper flat and fold down once lengthwise
  2. Step 2: Fold once half width-wise, then width-wise one more time
  3. Step 3: Leaving about an inch from the top, make vertical cuts about 1/2″ apart as shown in the picture
  4. Step 4: Unfold once width-wise, cut down the middle seam into two. Unfold each section and cut those down middle as well to get four sections
  5. Step 5: Open each section, lay horizontal and roll up the middle, straightening the strands as you go. Twist the middle tight and glue or tape to form the tassel shape, leaving a small loop in the middle
  6. Step 6: Repeat steps to create more tassels of all colors (I used a polka dotted gold paper from an old project and silver mylar paper) and string through the twine through the little loop to create your garland

Step by Step DIY Tassel Garland

And that’s it! If you want you can hot glue or tape the tassels to the twine but I found that unnecessary as mine didn’t move around once I put it up on the wall. Once I got to making the tassels I was on a roll and didn’t stop until I had wayy more than I needed 😀 More cute garlands in store for meee! You could follow the same tutorial for a fabric tassel garland but instead of scissors, a rotary cutter would make cutting easier. You could also use crepe paper instead of tissue paper. And if you don’t have twine, just use a long piece of yarn, or thicker embroidery thread – anything works.

Making a DIY tassel garland is a fun, rewarding, and budget-friendly way to add a personalized touch to your space or event. So why not give it a try and see the difference it can make! Now you guys go ahead and make some sparkly tassel garlands for your kid’s birthday party, party tables decor, permanent nursery decor or spruce up a new year’s eve party, and share your projects with me on Instagram. Just tag them as #penniesforafortune so I can see! Leaving you with some more pictures.

Until next time, folks!
