DIY party decorations are always so much fun to make and add a special touch to any event. For example, you can make mini toilet paper tube pinatas to hang around the room, a spooky DIY tablecloth for Halloween, or fun football party decorations for game day.

This tissue paper garland is made from something most of us have on hand and is perfect for just about any occasion. Make it with bright colors for a Cinco De Mayo celebration, with orange and black tissue paper for Halloween or red and green paper for Christmas banners. It’s so versatile and can transform any party into a festive event.

Once you have your tassels spread apart as you like them, add a dab of tacky glue to the twine under the tassel so it will stay in place

Hang the banner and enjoy!

What Can I Use to Hang the Paper Party Banner With?

Command strip hooks are a great way to hang party banners. Make a loop in the ends of the twine and loop them over the two hooks to hang on the wall or from a mantle.

You should be able to get about three tassels from each piece of tissue paper, so five pieces of tissue paper and a long piece of twine will give you a long and beautiful fifteen tassel banner
