Learn to create a chic tassel garland with tissue paper! You can use tassels and tassel garlands in many different ways, for example as decoration for parties, wedding receptions or dessert tables. Tissue paper comes in a great selection of colours, which you can combine in endless ways.
Fold a rectangular piece of tissue paper in half widthwise and then again lengthwise. Check the size guide below to determine the correct size of the tissue paper rectangle.
With scissors or a blade knife and metal ruler, cut vertical strips into the folded paper, leaving 5 centimetres or 2 inches of uncut tissue at the folded end.
Tip: If you’re working with a blade knife and ruler, it’s best to work on a cutting matt to protect the work surface.
Unfold the sheet and carefully straighten entangled paper strips. Roll up the uncut centre section, then twist firmly and bend into a loop. Fasten the tassel with a small piece of wire. Optionally, decorate the base of the tassel with washi tape to make it look even prettier. We’re using gold glitter washi tape for extra shimmer.
String up the tassel on a cord or ribbon, and trim their ends if desired. Using this technique you can create tassels in various sizes, you can find measurements for those in the description.
