My sister is getting married in just over a month, and this past weekend, I threw her a bridal shower. Remember two weeks ago when I was talking about doing party research and showed you one of the garlands that I was in love with? Well, here’s part two of that. I’m currently loving fringe, and wanted to create fringe garlands to hang all over the party zone. And I’m ready to share with you just how I achieved it:
1. Take a sheet of your tissue paper and fold in half, hamburger style (do folks even say that still?). Then keep folding until you’ve made a narrow strip.
2. Then let your tissue paper get fringe action! Leave about an inch and a half uncut. You’ll use this part to secure the fringe to your string.
3. Unfold the tissue fringe strip part-way and place a piece of double-sided tape inside, placing the end of your string on it, and then folding it back up.
4. Keep folding that end of your tissue fringe strip until you get get it pretty thin. Secure with your matte-finish tape.
5. Overlap that piece of tissue fringe with another piece, and interchange colors if you’d like. In time, you’ll have the prettiest garland.
Enjoy! Come see on Thursday on my blog how my sister’s bridal shower decor turned out …
