Monday Crafternoons are all about making your DIY project just a little more attainable. I was a serious DIY bride, with a handyman fiancé so we have a ton of projects under our belt. Let us know if there are any projects you want us to add to our series in the comments.
For this week’s crafternoon project we thought we’d start out with an easy one.
The project: Tissue Tassel Garland
The difficulty level: EASY!
Time needed to complete: It totally depends on how long you want the garland. Plan for about an hour for this one.. Best part? It’s remarkably easy and can be done mindlessly in front of the TV. Put on your favorite Netflix show and get goin’.
Materials needed: Tissue Paper, Ribbon/String, Scissors
The Total Cost: If you’re like me, I have all theses things on hand. We picked up a pack of 20 tissue sheets in 3 awesome colors for about $3.00. Then I added some blue tissue that we had on hand.. and strung on a ribbon we also had. Depending on the materials you had on hand, this project could range you anywhere between $0 – $10.
Is it worth the DIY?: $3 and an hour of your time.. TOTALLY worth it! And can be easily reused!!!
The Step-by-Step instructions:
I used this awesome blog post from Linen, Lace, & Love.. aka.. a Pinterest find.
Fold and cut:
Roll (making sure you comb out the tassels)
Twist the tassel around your finger to create a loop.
String on your ribbon and DONE!
Let us know how it goes!
