Tassel Garland Tutorial

Tuesday, September 1, 2015

Every year my group at work puts together a tailgate at a UF game for our customers. This year, I'm in charge of a welcome reception the night before. I wanted to make some cute little decorations for this event and decided to try my hand at a tassel garland. I followed this tutorial, which was super easy.

*As a disclaimer for those who know me: I do not like UF [like at all] but one weekend a year, I put my differences aside and help out at my company tailgate. I am slightly sad that this tutorial will be based on Gator colors. 

Depending on how you fold the paper will depend on the tassel size. Folding the paper this way created fatter, shorter tassels

To make these more fun, add some washi tape around the glued connection

These tassels were so easy to make and are such an adorable way to spruce up a party or even a home! I definitely want to make these for every season to hang in our house.


  1. This turned out so cute and is perfect for a tailgate!

  2. I can't believe how easy you made that look and how great it turned out! I need something like that for my mom's birthday but Im pretty bad at DIY stuff!
