Along with uber large balloons, I can't get enough of the tassel garland.

I found the perfect tutorial for this DIY on The Sweetest Occasion by Lovely Indeed that I couldn't resist sharing with you. I adore the color palette - especially with the pop of metallic. 

Here's the super easy scoop on how you can whip this up for your next party!

You will need:

  • Various colors of tissue paper - even mylar for that metallic pop!
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun
  • Cord

First, fold one sheet of tissue paper in half width-wise, then fold it over twice length-wise. With your scissors, cut strips of fringe about 1/4" wide along the unfolded short edge of your twice folded tissue, leaving about 2" of uncut tissue at the folded edge.

 Unfold your two length-wise folds and cut the tissue in the center, creating two folded halves. Set one aside.

Open your remaining half and lay it out. You should have a sheet of tissue with fringe on both sides and a solid section down the center. Using the solid center section, begin to roll the tissue paper, carefully keeping the fringe untangled.

After the entire section is rolled, twist the center tightly. Then curl it to create a loop and secure with a small dot of hot glue if needed.

Trim the ends to even it out and string your tassel on your cord. Repeat until you have as many as you like!

Hang until your heart's content. These scream fun. chic. fancy. (and wouldn't they be so festive around the holidays?!)
