DIY Tassel Garland


When MJD threw me a birthday brunch to celebrate the big 3-0, I tried to stay pretty hands off and let him run with the planning. He threw an amazing party and it was the perfect way to celebrate with our family and friends. Of course being the super Type A and party planning loving person that I am, I couldn’t totally resist and ask MJD if I could make a few decorations. Can’t have a party without some decorations right?!

I really wanted to try my hand at making some tassel garlands- aren’t they super cute? And surprisingly pretty easy to make! They just take a bit of time, but if you have the time to commit, I think it’s fun to have something you DIY-ed in your party décor. Want to make them for yourself? Here’s my step by step (with photos!) for how to make!

You’ll Need:

  • 15 X 20 Tissue paper in your choice of color (I ordered mine on Amazon!)
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Washi Tape
  • String
