This outdoor PATRIOTIC tassel garland costs less than $5 to make!
At a mere $4 to create, this may be one of my new favorite crafts.
Allow me to introduce you to my new Outdoor Patriotic Tassel Garland!!
Making garland and buntings are a favorite pastime of mine, but I only have so many places to put them.
Inside, that is!
Now that I have an outdoor option I may hang them from every tree in my yard!
You can find all of these items at the Dollar Store!
Or, if you don’t have one of those nearby, you can find them for a little bit more online (affiliate link).
To do this easily:
1) Pull the tablecloths directly out of the plastic casing and lay it on a flat surface.
2) Unfold it one time to the right then begin cutting the strips. When you pull open the strip, the length will be the width of the tablecloth.
3) Continue to unfold to the right as you go.
Repeat so that you have 6 strips total in your fingers.
Fold the length of the strips in half.
Make a knot where the strips are folded in half so that a 1-inch loop remains.
Continue these steps until you run out of strips.
You should end up with approximately 45 tassels.
Tie the clothesline wherever you intend to hang your garland.
Since the tassels are made of plastic they should hold up outside for quite a while.
It’s just dreamy!
They would be fun to coordinate for any outdoor party though.
Think birthdays, weddings, graduations, and more!
But then you’re only out the $3 for the cost of the tablecloths.
And you can easily make another one for the next summer!
The tassels rustling in the breeze while you swing on the hammock is super relaxing!
Where would you hang your tassel garland outdoors??
>> See where I party! <<
