DIY/ Tassel Garland

The Half Baked girls are in the midst of preparing for our Mother's Day Picnic and I was in charge of creating the tassle garland. Many of the tutorials we found for the tassle garland required tissue paper, however our color scheme is baby pink, cream, and white and we could only find a tissue paper pack of pastel colors with only 3 baby pink sheets. I didn't think it was necessary to buy multiple packs just for one color so I sat on it. I walked around the store a bit and behold - I found baby pink streamers! The streamers worked out perfectly using the same technique! I definitely recommend using streamers especially if you only want a one-color garland.

1. Streamers
2. Scissors
3. Tape
4. String

1. Cut streamers to 16". The finished tassle will be 1/2 of your initial length, so feel free to make them longer if you want.
2. Cut 5 more pieces, lay them on top of each other and fold in half to make a crease.
3. Cut each side into 4 strips leaving about 1" before the crease. Repeat to other side.
4. Starting from one side, roll the un-cut center and twist together.
5. Bend the tassle in half and continue twisting the sides together. Make sure you leave a tiny hole at the top for the string.
6. Secure with tape. We used gold glitter tape to add a metallic accent.
7. String all of your tassles together knotting each one at the top.

Have fun with your new decor!
