Tassel Garland Tutorial by Sparkle Pop Designs
20″ x 20″ or 20″ x 24″ tissue paper or mylar per tassel
hot glue gun & glue sticks
ribbons for trimming
Step 1: Fold the tissue paper
*follow the natural folds of the tissue paper
*Mylar can be a little tricky to fold. Take your time when folding and don’t get frustrated. The final look will make the extra effort worth it.
Fold 1- fold in half “hamburger” style
Fold 2- fold in half again “hot dog” style
Fold 3- fold in half for the last time “hamburger” style
Step 2: Cut the tissue paper
*I use a clothes pin to hold the tissue paper together and as a marker for where to stop my cutting
Cut strips 1/2 strips towards the top fold.
2. Leave 1-2 inched uncut at the top
3. Unfold the tissue paper.
4. Cut the folded half. This will provide you with 2 sheets of fringe.
Step 3. Creating Tassel
Begin rolling tissue paper thru the middle crease.
Twist the center (uncut) tissue paper to create your loop.
Secure loop with a dot of hot glue.
Continue for remaining tassels.
*For a 4 ft tassel garland use 10 tassels.
Step 4: Creating your garland
1.Cut a piece of ribbon to secure your tassels to.
*For a 4ft tassel garland use about 6 ft of ribbon. This gives you an extra foot on each end.
2. Tie your tassels one at a time to the piece of ribbon.
*Hang or tie garland to a hanger when complete. The tissue paper is very fragile and will crinkle easily. Hang them until ready to use. This ensures them looking their best!
