Have you ever looked at a homemade garland and wondered how they did it? Find out here how to make a tissue garland for Christmas.
This method is super-easy, and you can use up recycled tissue paper if you like.
You can use thread or twine for your garland. If you like the look of other types of decorations in among the pom-poms, use twine.
I like the look of red, green, and white for a Christmas garland, but you could do all one color, or whatever colors you like!
- Red, green, and white tissue paper
- Fold a piece of tissue paper in half, then again, then again. You should have a long strip.
- Fold it in half the other way.
- Fold the top down to the one-third mark.
- Fold the bottom back to the one-third mark.
- You should have a square bundle now measuring roughly 3.5 inches, but you could have any size you like.
- Put a pin in it to hold it in place.
- Cut a circle through all the layers. All of the folded parts will fall away.
- Remove the pin.
- Fold the circle in half.
- Make a tiny diagonal cut in the middle of the straight side. Turn it over, and make a tiny cut the other way to make a triangle cut-out.
- Cut the thread; if this is the first one, make a loop in the end as a hanger.
- Pass the thread through the hole.
- Make roughly inch-long cuts at close intervals all around the circle; keep the scissors away from the center hole.
- If this is not the first, join the thread to the thread of your existing chain.
- Fluff up the pom-poms along the thread.
You’ve got a homemade Christmas garland!
