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.

  • It’s been six years since we lost our good friend, to me he was very much like a brother. Genuine, caring, funny, and such a family guy. This weekend we took time to remember. My heart feels heavy, I’ve never been good with words during times of grief but this weekend encouraged me that lots of words aren’t always needed. Our actions and the intentional moments mean so much. #domliveson
  • He makes me smile, the real full mouth all the teeth smile.

Thanks again @thepieshoppe & @sumacridgewine for having us come create the other night. That’s my kinda date night. Thanks for the snap @gracefullyglamblog
  • It's a crazy thing what can happen when you start doing the things you love but also might scare you. I've been creating content on this space for five years as this past year has presented some of the most incredible opportunities. This latest one with @coquitlamcentre has been so fun! Excited to share that I am their next and final 'Girl In Focus' -- head over to their feed to see the first video that was created.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Also, sending a big kiss out there for all of you, for being encouraging, inspiring and simply for just being you. If there's something on your heart that you have been wanting to start, but you feel like you don't know how.. maybe you are scared.. maybe you are worried of judgement. Trust me, it's worth putting all that aside and just trying. Just starting. Because in all honesty, starting is always the hardest part.⁠⠀

PS my outfit is from @rw_co, shoes @callitspring at @coquitlamcentre — I couldn’t leave without them! #girlinfocus #workingit #stylebyCQC
  • Who snacks more, you or the kids?
.
I used to think it was the kids, but since getting Invisalign I've realized more and more how much I love snacking, as I am willing to take my liners in and out every time. #worthit

A new snack I've been trying out from @patiencefruitco are their Active Blends, my favourite blend being the Seasalt & Pepper. Check out my stories to see all three flavours. *sponsored #patiencefruitco
  • We donut want to leave @pacificsands today, but it’s time to roll out.

  • I opened up the new My Only Bottle Loop from @sodastreamcanada and the girls were PUMPED. Sophie suggested bringing our SodaStream FIZZI to school so that she can make sparkling water there (see stories) and I suggested that we make it at home in her new My Only Bottle Loop and she can bring it with her. The 500mL bottle is the perfect size for traveling to and from school, just grab your sparkling water bottle by the loop and scoot out the door. ⁠

PS the My Only Bottle is also dishwasher safe (tell me I’m not the only one excited about this!) and available online at sodastream.ca or at your local London Drugs retailer ⁠
