I've seen tassel garlands in stores recently, and they look so festive. I considered purchasing one at Target (or even from Etsy), but I had some spare time and it was a fun way to keep my hands busy while I relaxed and binge-watched one of my favorite TV shows.
There aren't many steps involved, and the tassels can be made with tissue paper and twine that you probably already have around the house. Here's a quick tutorial, straight from YouTube:
I am not crafty enough to own my own Martha Stewart Fringe Cutter, but I do have a pair of scissors, and they worked just fine. The tassel strings don't need to be the exact same width to be pretty. Just free hand it!
