Colorful Easter Tassel Garland...makes my heart go pitter patter

My friend showed me a garland she had made for her mantle and my jaw dropped. I fell in love with I decided my mantle needed one just for the Easter holiday! It adds so much color to the room, and I just might NEVER take it down!

So, this weekend while listening to General Conference I had time to cut strips, tie strips and than hang the strips :-). It's funny, when my hands keep busy I am able to listen better.

What you'll need:
- 1/2 yard of eight different fabrics
-5 1/2 feet of upholstery rope (in the uphostery section at Joannes or any fabric store)

Simply cut your 1/2 yards into 2 inch strips, than tie them on to your rope! My friend first hung her rope and then tied her strips. However, I preferred just sitting and doing it on the floor; even though my back may not agree.

Pin It


  1. This is one of my favorite post ever! So much vibrant color! We will definitely be making one of these this week

  2. This is about the cutest thing ever. Considering just making one to hang on my bedroom wall for a pop of color. Thanks for sharing! xo

  3. This is so cute! I actually recently posted a diy I did for a fabric garland I made for my babies room. But I love these bright colors, and love the idea of different garlands for different holidays!

  4. So colorful . . love!! :) I, too, have that California shirt and can't stop wearing it. It's the comfiest thing. Pinning this craft idea right. now. Thanks for the idea!

  5. I can't picture how you tied them so there's that little piece sticking up above the rope - what am I missing? Super cute!

    1. you just tie the end of the fabric to the rope like youd tie a string onto a stick (that was the only visual thing I could think of to describe it ha)
