DIY Tassel Banner

Monday, November 18, 2019

Happy Monday! I am so excited for today's blog post as it is a fun (and easy) DIY perfect for your college dorm or apartment. After moving in, Rachel and I realized we had quite a bit of empty space on our walls that we wanted to fill and not drop a ton of money on (check out our living area here, my room here, and Rachel's room here). I decided to make a fun tassel banner (using these instructions) and I absolutely love how it turned out. I think it's perfect for birthday party photo backdrops or just everyday decor!

We typically have one that is pink, orange, and old with gold dots (featured in the last picture) but I decided to swap out the pink and orange for red and white to make it a bit festive for the holidays!


- Tissue Paper in desired colors (1 piece of tissue paper per tassel)
- Scissors
- Stapler
- Washi Tape
- Twine (or something to string the tassels together)
- Command hooks (to hang on wall)

1. Take one sheet of tissue paper and fold in half

2. Take a pair of scissors and cut through paper up until about 2 inches before crease

3. Unfold the tissue paper and lay completely flat

4. Roll the tissue paper tightly among the uncut middle portion

5. Twist the rolled piece and fold to make a loop

6. Staple the loop to hold together

7. Cover the staple with washiest tape

8. Repeat steps until you have the number of tassels you want (I have made it using 6 as well as 8)

9. String tassels through the twine

10. Hang on wall using command hooks

Thanks for reading!
