Fringed Banner DIY

5.09.2012

For Violet's first birthday party I made a fringed banner using Martha Stewart's instructions. This year I modified them a bit to make it faster and easier for me:

Materials: tissue paper, scissors, twine or string, clear tape



Step 1 - Fold the tissue paper in half:



Step 2 - Starting at the open side of the fold, cut thin strips into the tissue paper. Stop when you get about an inch from the folded side:




Step 3 - Cut the large piece into smaller sections (however large you prefer is fine. Mine were 2-3 inches wide):



Step 4 - Hang the twine and drape the folded side of each piece over it. Secure with clear tape:



Step 5 - Hang and enjoy!


The whole project took about half an hour - super easy. If I would've had more mint tissue paper I would have made a few more for sure. Happy DIY!  xo, Lauren
