This project is inexpensive, quick, easy and I’ll even bet you have everything you need on hand already. My favorite part? The finished product serves double duty, spicing up your next party, then adding a delightful and playful twist on home decor. The possibilities are endless!Materials tissue paper scissors clothespins, paperclips or similar
ribbon or twineWhat To Do Lay out your tissue paper flat. Now you can either layer with the same or different color sheets, or just use one sheet. I used three sheets, one each of white, light blue and blue. I don’t suggest using more than three sheets as your tassels may end up too large. Fold the tissue paper in half width-wise (left to right as pictured). Do this now for all of your tassels so you can combine them for the next step, which will make it quicker.
Take two or three sets of your folded papers and place directly on top of one another, then clip together with clothespins, paper clips or whatever you have on hand.
Using scissors, cut your paper into strips, thick or thin, leaving about an inch and a half at the top. Don’t worry, they don’t have to be perfect.
Cut until you reach the other end.
Unfold your paper, one set at a time, to lay flat.
Gently roll the paper, starting at one end to the other. The tassels may get a little tangled, but I don’t mind since the ones in the middle add volume, and the ones on the outside are easily detangled.
You’ll end up with what looks like a handle in the middle with tassels on each end. Twist the “handle” to make it tight…
…then fold the “handle” in half.
Loosen the fold enough to wrap ribbon around one side and tie a knot, leaving at least one inch of ribbon hanging from the knot.
Wrap the both sides with ribbon a few times, then use the one inch from the original knot to tie a second knot. After this second knot, leave enough ribbon to tie the tassel to whatever you string them on. I used a thicker matching white ribbon to the ribbon I tied my tassels with. Attach the tassels however far apart you wish (mine are 9 inches apart), and wah-lah!
