Tissue paper tassel garland tutorial

Hello lovelies! How are all your Holiday preparations going? I am manically trying to get everything ready for my guests arriving later today. So I am just popping by to share with you my tissue paper tassel garland tutorial and show you some sneak peeks of how my Christmas dessert table is looking. Fingers crossed I finish baking in time to fill it!

I have wanted to have a go at making a tissue paper tassel garland for ages, I think they are so pretty and are really effective. Well this Christmas seemed a good as time as any. I was going to add really shiny gold tassels but after making one I felt it looked to brash next to the soft gold on my Christmas cake, so didn't make any more. I am so going to be making more tissue paper tassel garlands, they are pretty easy to make and only require half a sheet of tissue paper for each tassel so are relatively cheap too!

I hope to share my finished Christmas dessert table next week...

Wishing you all a sweet Saturday
