Growing up, most kids have Santa, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy, but my sister and I also had the Birthday Fairy. Every year I would wake up to a room decorated with balloons, crepe paper and happy birthday banners. It was always a magical start to my birthday and a tradition my mom carried on even while I was in college, decorating my childhood room when I would come home to celebrate. Since the birthday fairy won’t be flying to Nevada this year, I decided it was a good excuse to finally try making a tassel garland. Not only is it festive for birthdays and weddings, it’s also great for every day home decor.
All you need is tissue paper in your favorite colors, a hot glue gun, scissors and twine. I picked light pink, ivory and gold because those are my wedding colors and I want to hang it at our dessert table.
