I have yet another planter/succulent craft for you today. I made a tissue paper tassel banner a few weeks ago for Pearl’s room and I had the idea of making another tiny one out of the leftovers. Everything is cuter in miniature form, right? Then I realized I had nowhere to put this teeny tiny tassel banner. So, I found an extra terra cotta pot and a succulent…and I think it turned out pretty stinkin’ cute.
Step 1: Grab a piece of tissue paper and fold it in half lengthwise.
Step 2: Fold if in half again.
Step 3: Unfold and cut along the creases that you’ve just made. You will have 2 skinny pieces.
Step 4: Grab one skinny piece of tissue paper and fold it in half lenthwise.
Step 5: Fold in half the other way.
Step 6: Fold in half again.
Step 7: Fold in half one more time.
Step 8: Cut lines in the bottom of the rectangle, stopping about a half inch from the folded top.
Step 9: Unfold your fringed piece and cut along all the folded lines. You should have 8 pieces.
Step 10: Roll each piece of tissue paper with the fringe on either side.
Step 11: Twist the center portion of the tassel.
Step 12: Lay your piece of twine across the center of the tassel and add a dot of hot glue to the center.
Step 13: Fold the tassel over the twine and twist a few times.
These tiny tassels can be hung anywhere. They are also pretty addicting to make. I’m picturing a bunch of these tiny tassel garlands hanging on a wall above a bed…or maybe draped across a mantle…or wrapped around a mason jar with some flowers in it.
