Crepe Paper Tassel Garland




This was such an easy project. I needed to make a garland for the Mario Birthday I planned some days back. I had a bunch of colorful crepe paper streamers, so thought of making this quick garland. It was such an inexpensive and easy way to bring some color to the party.





When I was making the garland for the party, I forgot to take pictures. So now for the instructions I made the garland again and hence the color of the streamers in the instructions are different than the garland I had for the party. You can use the same color streamers for the garland or multi color as I did for the Mario party.

You can make tassel garland with fabric or tissue paper too and that would look great as well.

You'll need
------------
Crepe paper streamers.
String/twine

Steps:
--------

- Cut 8 strips of streamers of the same length. You don't need to measure to have the streamers exactly the same length. Just approximate would work just fine. I had mine cut to approximately 9" in length. You can use shorter or longer length of streamer depending on how you want your tassel to be.



- Hold all 8 strips together and tie the strips with the twine at one end just like the picture below.



- Cut another 8 strips of streamers and tie it together in the twine leaving a little gap in the twine of approx 9" - 10".


- Keep on making the tassels and tying it to the twine to make the garland.
