DIY tassel garland

One of my really close friends recently got engaged and had a dinner at her house with her family, close friends, and in-laws-to-be. The day before, we acted on a spur of the moment idea and went to Hobby Lobby to find materials for DIYing décor for the dinner. Not really having an idea of what either of us was looking for ended up being awesome because we just went with whatever we could think of as we perused the store. Although I didn't end up getting pictures of all of the decor, I did capture one piece we both worked on that was so easy to create.

This DIY tassel garland is so simple to make and is a great way to fill an empty space for any occasion- a birthday, a house party, a dinner, anything! All you need are scissors, gift tissue paper, string, and tape. You get to pick your own colors, string, and decide how closely you want to bunch the tissue paper together. The instructions are uncomplicated, and the result looks like you spent a lot of time on it. I've seen these types of tassel garlands being sold ready made at stores, but why pay more for a premade option when you can customize & DIY one in your free time for a lot cheaper!

Pro tip- we learned it is much easier to handle regular tissue paper than mylar paper. The mylar was difficult to cut evenly and sometimes just ripped. Although, the shiny mylar tassel is, in my opinion, really cute and worth the hassle (hehe).
