Tissue tassel garlands are a huge party décor trend!

They’re fluffy and fun, inexpensive and easy to make, and fill a lot of visual space making them perfect for backdrops at parties — think above a dessert bar or behind a Photo Booth.

Don’t spend a fortune buying these online when you can make them yourself at home. Many online tutorials use wire to secure the tassel but our kid-friendly version doesn’t have any sharp edges.

We like garlands that use at least 3-4 colours — especially those that mix gold or metallic paper.
