diy Tutorial: Tissue Paper Garland

I am sure you have noticed the latest party craze for tissue paper garlands.  They are incredibly eye catching and add the perfect eye candy for any event.  I have wanted to know how these are made and I found the perfect tutorial on Ruffled Blog that I wanted to share with you. The great thing about these garlands is that they are incredibly easy to make, affordable and can be made using any color combination.

What you'll need:
 - Jute twine
- Scotch tape
- Scissors
- Tissue paper (choose as many different colors as you wish)
- foil garland cut into 6-10" sections (found at party supply stores)

Step 1:
Cut tissue paper into strips, leaving space at the top to keep together.

Step 2:
 Twist paper together at the completed section at the top, careful not to fold the cuts of hanging paper.

Step 3:
Tape twist-top together and cover with jute twine, making a loop so as to string when complete.

Step 4:
Repeat steps 1-3 for other tissue paper colors, and for the fringed garland.

Step 5:
String together tissue and fringe garland, cut sections into different lengths if desired.

Step 6:
You are ready to hang your fabulous creation!

Perfect for weddings, birthdays, baby showers and more!

  1. So creative and festive!!! I haven't seen using tissue paper as garland like this. So fun!! My daughter's birthday is coming up and this will make a great addition. She's turning 16 and wants to decorate the entire house...I don't know why I said yes. Thanks for the idea!!

  2. I agree with Crystal, what a great way to use tissue paper! Gorgeous!

  3. Yes, these tassel-style garlands have been popping up everywhere. So festive! The trick, though, seems to be choosing a striking color combination and adding in some metallics. :-)
