Keeping my promise to celebrate craft month by creating and sharing more DIYs with you, I have another quick and easy project for ya.
Here we go!
A few strips of tissue paper, about 5 x 2 inches.
Fringe scissors (or use regular scissors if you're not in the cool kids club yet. I just got my membership.)
Pretty tape. I used my gold striped Washi! Love it. It'd be one of the items I'd grab in a fire.
Step 1: Fold your lengths of tissue paper in half and cut fringe, leaving about 1/2 inch uncut at the top.
Step 2: Unfold the tissue paper and layer them on top of each other.
It looks like a really festive crab, right? Or something.
Step 3: Roll the fringe layers together. It's okay to delicately pinch the tissue together as you roll. It will create a tighter bundle.
Step 4: Create a loop and adhere with your precious and always faithful Washi tape.
Step 5: Take the tag off the tea bag, thread the string through the tassel loop, and tie. You can always trim your tassel if you like a neater fringe.
The best part is you can reuse the tassels! When you're done with your tea, simply snip off the string and save the tassel for later.
I think these would be adorable for a bridal shower, especially if it's a tea party theme. How else could you use them, you ask? As Mother's Day gifts! As an amazing detail to your coffee and tea bar at your wedding or any event!
Or just use them to wow your guests at your next dinner party.
Here's how the scene would play out:
"Would anyone like some coffee or tea?"
"Oh yes, tea would be lovely. Thank you."
You come back with a little tassel accompanying their tea and all of a sudden fireworks, confetti, and happiness sprinkles are falling all around your guests!
Instant party maker.
Enjoy your day, lovelies!
