DIY Tassel Garland Cake Topper

For Valentine’s Day a few blogger friends, The Cheerio Diaries and The Pampered Baby, and I got together with our daughter’s to plan a styled Valentine’s photo shoot. While getting everything together and gathering our thoughts the night before we realized that we didn’t have a cake topper. We chatted back and forth and then I thought of the idea of putting together a mini tassel garland cake topper to match the tassel garland we had for decor from Fun Fiestas by Ili.

I brought the tassel garland cake topper home because I wanted to share how easy this was to make! Follow the simple steps and you can put together for your next event in no time.

How to make a Tassel Garland Cake Topper

Materials:

  • Decorative paper straws
  • Tissue paper
  • Twine
  • Scissors

Step One: Cut up your tissue into three inch long tassels. I made nine groups of three strands of tissue for the garland. Create as many to your liking to fill the length of your desired garland.

Step Two: With your tassels in groups of three place each tassel above the other and then twist together in the middle of the tissue. Twist about a half an inch length. Fold in half and then twist the two sides together until they are secure. Leave a little loop at the top to thread your twine through the tassels.

Step Three: One by one thread on the tassels, either creating a pattern with the colours or at random, and wiggle the tissue around until it forms and lies to your liking. Add on all of the twisted tassels until your garland is complete.

Step Four: Tie the ends of your twine around the straw and fasten either by a knot, glue or tap. I have hidden my ends behind the hearts on the Valentine’s inspired straws created by Dixie and Twine.

When we hopped into the car today Evelyn declared, “ YESSS MOMMY! We go pick up Sophie and Ezzie now!! Yayyyyy!” Poor thing had four more hours till it was really time.

Thanks for the snap @sugarplumlaurel | Stroller @diono
  • Getting new frames soon and want to hear what you all think. I picked out my top three styles and want to put it to a vote. Comment below which pair you like the best (swipe left to see all three)

I’m sharing all the details about my recent experience at @irisvisualgroup on the blog. Talking about what it was like going in with the girls, what age you should first bring your kids and what I’m going to start using during soccer games. Can you believe I have been playing half blind? Link in bio ( there's also more images of the three styles if you want to see before you vote). #ad #irisvisualgroup
  • Tomorrow starts the first full week of kindergarten for that confident girl on the right. I didn’t realize how emotional I was about the whole thing, until her first full day and I was basically a big giant mess. Here’s to hoping I can hold it together.
  • Overwhelmed by the number of you that responded to my stories today. Parenting is hard. Some days so much harder than others. The good thing is, we don’t have to do it alone. When we open up and share (like I did this morning to someone I’ve only met a few times) we give ourselves an opportunity to learn and grow. My hope for all of you is that through your journey, you constantly seek, grow and share. It makes a difference.
  • Drove out to @centralcitysurrey tonight with this girl. Lots of laughs as we tried on our five looks for this Friday’s fashion show! Say what!?
•
There’s going to be six of us walking the runway from 12:00 - 1:30 PM, plus tons of other activities happening right by the food court ($500 mall giveaway draw, selfie station, beauty demos and more) — come on out and cheer us on

  • I made simple syrup for the first time at home and two things:
1. DANG that's good!
2. It's WAYYYY easier then I anticipated
•
After cruising a handful of different simple syrup recipes online I combined a few that I thought would work, reduced the sugar and substituted cream of tartar for lemon juice. For some reason I never like to follow the directions the first time and always like to try out my own... it doesn't always work out, but this time it sure did!! You can see more of the steps in my stories for how to make your own simple syrup and sparkling water using the new @sodastreamcanada FIZZI One Touch at home. I always love when things turn out easier than expected! Does anyone want the full recipe on the blog?
