I'm really excited to share this super cheap, super easy Halloween craft that you can make with your Girl Scouts troops or just as decoration for around the house! I can't remember how I came about purchasing black tissue paper back in July, but thankfully I did and this idea popped into my head. I've been a little nutty, (with fall product..lol) using tissue paper for all of my designs, lately.
My daughter's 6th birthday party was this past weekend and I'm excited to start sharing some of the deets with you. The first detail I wanted to share in a post all its own was the tissue tassel garland!
I've been dying to make one of these and the color scheme just seemed to fit so well. This is also something perfect for spring, Easter, or an "
" baby shower theme! I love the pastel rainbow colors!.
tissue paper in assorted colors
hot glue gun
Fold your tissue paper in half twice.
Along the second fold cut tissue paper in half. Put one half aside. Fold the other piece of tissue in half length wise aka hot dog.
Fold over a 1 inch flap. This is to help guide you when cutting so you don't cut too much.
Cut length wise starting at the folded corner. Cut about a 1/4 - 1/2 inch apart. Do not cut into the folded area.
Open up the folded tissue and cut on the folded edge from top to bottom to form two separate pieces of tissue.
Set one piece aside and unfold the other piece of tissue.
Roll the tissue paper.
GENTLY twist the tissue starting at the center and twisting an inch in each direction.
Make a small loop and begin twisting the already rolled tissue paper together adding a dab of hot glue as you go. Add a dab of hot glue at the start of the loop, at the end, and throughout the twisting to ensure a secure set.
complete the process with as many tissue tassels as you like. Once you have assembled the amount you desire, fluff them down so none of the tassels are curled up. String them on the crafting thread and hang in a fun place!
This is such an inexpensive and easy craft to add some fun and festive color to your season or occasion. I love the versatility with the colors and you can save the tassels and stitch it throughout the year.
A friend of mine from work had mentioned how her hubby took it upon himself to do the sweetest thing ever! He created her a bucket list of dates.
When I told my hubby about the idea, he was equally excited as I was. Together we created a list of 48 exciting dates to liven up our marriage and put the spark back into date night!
I decided to take it a step further and surprise him on V-Day... Shhhh I pasted the bucket list on the inside of a smash book I created. This way we can check them off one by one and have the memories all in one place! I hope you all have a very fun filled Valentine's Day!!
