Just weeks after I made this Valentine's Day themed tassel garland, Studio Mucci reached 50,000 Instagram followers and had a huge 50% off sale. I bought the neutral toned tan and silver tassel garland that is handmade by the Studio Mucci team for a little under $20 and can't wait to put it up in my dorm room. Nonetheless, I'm still proud of my cost effective yet admittedly difficult to make DIY garland that took only about $5 of materials but almost two full hours of seemingly endless labor. With just the bare minimum of supplies all you have to do is fold multiple strands of tissue paper or ribbon in half while they are all still bunched together and twist the loop at the top of each bundle so that you can string them on to a chord or ribbon from Hobby Lobby. Seems simple enough, right? Wrong, actually. There were so many complications that made the process 10x longer than intended (have I ever mentioned that I'm only half as good of a crafter as I claim to be) which really put a damper on my tassel garland making parade. The resulting homemade garland was great (and I use that term loooosely), but I am glad that I was able to get an original Tassel Factory tassel garland from LA-based company Studio Mucci.
