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.

  • I had my wisdom teeth out today and I feel like this wall is rather fitting. I have such a hard time resting, staying home and doing nothing.... More awesome now please.

  • Got to hang with some goats and do a little toga today, with about 400 other people. Have you tried goat yoga? Would you??
  • There’s some new faces around here and it’s been a while since I did a little intro, an about me per se... just a little bit more random.

1. I’ve lived in the same town my whole life. Some may think it’s boring.. I’d call it loyal 😅 .. either way, I know a lot about Abbotsford.
2. If you hold your hand up, palm facing away from you. Pull your thumb back and see how far you can go. Mine can touch the back of my arm, it’s forever been my “talent”.
3. It’s been 5 years (almost to the day) since I started my blog. Growing up I wanted to be a nurse, then went to school to be a police officer, changed gears into business and marketing, graduated with graphic design and its led me to hear. I never had big goals or felt like I was on the right path, but motherhood and this space has brought me all the feels.
4. We’ve been looking for land to grow some flowers of our own. My husband grew up on a flower farm (both the peonies and iris’ pictured are from their farm), property prices can just go ahead and come down a little now.
5. I don’t know if the feeling of being done is for real.. like we feel like we are done having kids but I’d be fibbing if I said it doesn’t come to mind every now and again.

That’s all for now friends. Share a little something about you below — say hi if you are new hear and thanks for reading til the end 🥰🙌🏻
  • Throwing it back to the other day when I went for an evening dip with my beaver @float.eh — it was such a hoot heading to the beach with @juliechristine_xo and gave me a peek into how much fun this summer is going to be.⠀ ⠀
#ad As you can see these aren’t your typical floaties... or should I say @float.eh ’s 😉 They are proudly Canadian, made with quality in mind. You gotta check out their website and see what other fun Canadian designs they have. [ go to float-eh.ca or see my story highlights for the link ] 🇨🇦
  • “When’s the last time you did something for the first time?” Those were words spoken to our group before starting our Tough Mudder course this past weekend in Whistler. Holy moly guys, I was nervous getting started on that course. Let’s just say... nervous shits are real 😅😂🙊 but that’s what makes it so great. Doing something that literally scares the shit outta you. We all pushed through, all 16km and 25 obstacles and it was FUN, hard but really freaking fun. Even though I’m hobbling around today, dang foot cramp (and literally sore all over) I’m so pumped on doing something new, pushing myself and having such an amazing group of friends tackle it together.

PS our men of tough mudder not pictured but SO equally appreciated.
