How to Make Tassel Garland using Crepe Paper Streamers

Have you ever gone looking for the perfect decoration only to find everything but the colors you need? Been there…done that. For the Shopkins party theme I created for Birthday in a Box I knew I wanted to use a tissue tassel garland but couldn’t find any that had the right colors.

The answer was right there in my shopping cart though because I had already planned on using crepe paper streamers. As I was reviewing my shopping list, it dawned on me that I could just make my own tassel garland and that it probably wouldn’t take much time at all. After making the first one I knew I made the right choice…I am loving these crepe paper tassel garlands and I hope you do too!

The supply list for this project is pretty simple:

  • Rolls of crepe paper streamers
  • Scissors
  • Twine or ribbon

These DIY crepe paper tassels are so easy to make you’re going to kick yourself for not making them sooner!

How to Make Crepe Paper Tassel Garlands

1. Choose your colors. Crepe paper comes in a large variety of colors. One roll will probably make at least a dozen tassels. (Don’t quote me on this since I only made a few of each color.)

2. Cut 10-12 strips of crepe paper. I chose to make these 12″ but you can determine the length based on how long you need the tassels to be.
