from Gygi's ( thinking about how many colors we have made me think of so many great ways to do these garlands!), folded them longways and cut. After cutting 10 strips I overlapped them and then grabbed down below (almost making like a ghost head) and tied it with string.
I left the string long enough for me to attach to the white yarn I used for actual garland. Alison is way better than me and glued them together, I'm too lazy. And it withstood a wind/rain storm so I feel good about it. But after making enough tassels- I think I had 8 of each color (which used just over 1/2 of the table over) I started tying to the yarn.
To start the garland, I used yarn mostly because I have a lot, but it seems to hold up just fine. Pull out about 8 inches of yarn and take your first tassel and use the extra string on the tassel tie it to the garland string, make sense? I went about 8" in to give myself some extra length and I figured I could always cut extra! But when tying the actual tassel to the yarn the "little ghost head" was above the string and the yarn was the same color as the yarn I used to tie the actual tassel so they blend right in and if you do a double knot they really are quite secure. I continued this repeating the color pattern but you could mix it up and have fun, until all the tassels are used. I then pulled out about another 8 inches of yarn and cut it from there.
That's it. You can spread them out more or push them super close together just depends on how much of a space you want it to cover but it was way easy and a fun addition to the decor.
But I'm still not super spooky am I?
