How to Make Tissue Paper Tassels and Garlands

How to Make Tissue Paper Tassels and Garlands

Tissue paper tassels are my go-to decorations for any party. They’re cheap, super festive, and easy for anyone to help make.

Tassel garlands are especially fun to string outside where they’ll enthusiastically flutter in the wind.

They can be made in any color you can find tissue paper in. Even Mylar works and it adds a sparkly touch to your party. So match up the colors and get started.

This is a great project to do with girlfriends, a bunch of bridesmaids or kids.

At the bottom of this post you’ll find a (really) long Pinterest ready image with all the steps for your tissue paper tassels tutorial pinning needs.

Materials

You only need one sheet of tissue paper per tassel, a pair of scissors and some twine to string all the tassels together. Some tacky glue is optional but helpful. Here I used a 20″x20″ sheet of tissue paper (Dollar Store baby!) but you can use a 20″x26″ also; you’ll just get a bushier tassel.

Cut fringe

Place a ruler on the folded edge about 1 inch down. This will keep you from cutting the fringe too high. Now cut the lines about 1/2 inch apart making sure to leave 1 inch at the top. If you have it, you can use a rotary cutter for this step.

Fold and Twist

Fold in half and twist the center together to make a hole. It’s a good idea to add and little tacky craft glue at the twist.
