A few tassels in sparkling mylar add a festive touch to your handmade tassel garland. Sheets of mylar are available at most craft stores.

This tutorial shows you how to make a larger version big enough to dress the front of a buffet table or stretch across a wall, but you can easily scale down the project. For a version small enough to add flair to your dining chairs, use 1/8 sheet of tissue paper per tassel.

Materials Needed:

  • 1/2 sheet of 20" x 20" or 20" x 24" tissue paper or mylar per tassel
  • scissors
  • ribbon or cord

Cut Fringe

Fold a piece of tissue paper in half and in half the other way. Cut strips towards the fold to create fringe, leaving about 1 inch uncut at the fold line.

Once all strips are cut, unfold the tissue and cut in half so you have 2 sheets with fringe (to make 2 tassels).

Twist Tassels

Unfold tissue paper. Begin rolling tightly down the middle crease. Continue rolling, fold in half and then twist to create a loop for hanging.

Create More Tassels and Finish Garland

Repeat to create additional tassels in various colors. Hang from thin cord or ribbon.
