Do you want to give your tree a last minute handmade touch? Then I have the project for you! I made these delicate tissue paper fringe garlands to deck our tree in just a few minutes with the help of a cool new fringe cutter from Martha Stewart.
I have absolutely loved our flocked tree decorated in shiny blue ornaments and glittery birds from hayneedle.com. I just hadn't had the opportunity to incorporate any DIY decorations into the tree like I always love to do, and I thought these garlands would be the perfect opportunity to do so.
I tried out a couple different lengths and chose a metallic chevron for one garland to match our tree skirt and stockings, and a light blue paper for the other. The long fringe reminds me of tinsel hanging from the tree.
When it comes to crafting, I'm a pretty low-tech gal but this fringe cutter is one gadget I'm excited to add to my repertoire. It automatically transforms tissue paper, mylar, and craft paper into fringe that can be used for garlands, tassels, and any range of party decor. These garlands are about as simple as it gets. Here's what you'll need.
