DIY Patriotic Tassel Garland

Hi Tatertots and Jello readers! Carissa from Carissa Miss here and I’m so excited to share some easy decor ideas for the 4th of July. It is seriously one of my favorite holidays. I don’t go all out in my whole house, but I usually try to make my porch and entry way very festive. It can be super expensive to deck out the house for each holiday and I don’t have time to make time consuming or elaborate crafts, so I’m sharing a few quick 15 minute crafts that cost $0-$5 for you to make a space more festive.

First up is an easy diy patriotic tassel garland. Pair it with a free printable, a paint stick flag, a felt garland wreath and some candlesticks and you have a quick patriotic entry table. {come over to Carissa Miss for the rest of the tutorials!}

To make this {or any tassel garland} you need 1 sheet of tissue paper in 4 different colors and some twine to string them on.

Start by folding the sheet into eighths

and then cut a couple strands 2/3 of the way from the non-folded edge. Make sure the folded edge is on top before cutting. Did I mention you should keep the folded edge on top? {I may have made that mistake and ruined a whole sheet of tissue paper. drat.}

Unfold the sheet, keeping it folded in half. Cut along the fold marks, there should be 8 separate sections.

Unfold each section

And start rolling the edge together as tight as you can.

Repeat with all 8 of one color and then repeat with each color.

Measure the space you want to hang and string the tassels on the garland and hang.

Maybe black and orange and white for Halloween? Or, red and green and gold for Christmas? See what I mean? The possibilities are endless! For the rest of the decor, you can switch out the printable with your own or a free one. These “Let Freedom Ring” printables I created are available for download on Sugar Bee Crafts tomorrow.

Simple wood stars or blocks are easy to make and switch out in different shapes and colors.

The paint stick flag is put together with glue and painted red, white, & blue. Think how easy it would be to paint some pumpkins or spiders for Halloween, or gold stars for Christmas?
