I’ve been wanting to make a tassel garland for a while now, and I decided New Year’s was the perfect time to display it.

The tassel garland isn’t hard – it’s just a little time-consuming.  I sat and made my garland while the kids were watching a Christmas movie.

Supplies for tissue tassels

For this tutorial, you’ll need tissue paper, a glue gun, and scissors.

Steps for Tissue Tassels

Start by unfolding one piece of tissue paper and laying it flat.  Next, fold the paper in half – lengthwise.

Fold it again – this time widthwise.

Step 2 Party Tassel

Keep folding – fold it lengthwise.
