How to make a fabric tassel garland…

The Fourth of July is just around the corner and it’s kind of crazy how fast it’s come up! I was so excited to team up with 6 other amazing bloggers to show some fun and easy Fourth of July projects! Welcome to everyone coming over from My Old Country House!

4th of july by My sweet savannah

I wanted to do something a little non-traditional and use fabrics I had received from the project on  this post. I used colors that were reminiscent of the 4th, but not quite that dead-on red, white and blue.

Make a fun banner for outdoor events

I made a fun fabric tassel garland.It was such an easy project to do and looks so cute. You could really do it for any occasion!

how to make fabric tassels

Cut your fabric into strips of 12 inches by 6 inches and then cut frays into them about 4 to 5 inches up, leaving room at the top.

Once your fabric is all cut into a fringe, you could leave it like that or continue on to make a tassel!

How to make a tassel banner out of fabric

Roll your fabric and as you roll, you’ll see the tassel forming.

How to add tassels to a banner

Once you have your tassel completely rolled,fold the top in half over a cord or twine and hot glue it into place.

Once you have enough for the length you need, they are ready to hang! I glued mine about 8 inches apart on twine.

Cozy Fourth of July

I then used some of the fabric I had left to make a cute little tablecloth for my bistro table.

It was a pretty backdrop for some lemonade.

I even added an extra  fabric tassel to help weigh the tablecloth down in the wind.

It makes a nice and colorful setting for a little Fourth of July soiree, and making a fabric tassel garland adds a nice pop of color too!

  1. What a fun idea for the Fourth! And I LOVE your back porch….I need to stop by for coffee! You go girl!!!!!!

    So happy to be partying with you today!

  2. Hi Jen! Love the new look. Super cute garland too. It would look nice hanging in your booth, We will not be there in July. Have a safe and happy 4th!

  3. Hi Jen! I’ve loved your blog for awhile now & LOVE your kitchen. I have a quick question for you — I noticed you have a towel rack in front of your kitchen sink. I’ve looked all over for a rod to put in the same place in my kitchen but they always stick out too far. Could you tell me where you got that towel rod? or did you make it? if so, could you share how? Thanks so much! Julie

    1. Hi Julie, I found mine at Bed, Bath and Beyond.It sticks out about the same as our dishwasher handle which is right next to it.

  4. This is a great idea for the 4th of July. I’m thinking of making it too. Your post is really inspiring. Thank you!
