Tissue Paper Garland Tutorial

DIY Projects

Photos by:

We’re so delighted that Camden of Emerson Events is back with us to share the secrets of her Neon Wedding Inspiration Shoot! The neon and metallic bits tied to twine are just the right balance of color + texture. We love the idea of re-purposing these garlands into rooms of your new home! Thank you to Amanda Watson for capturing these images.

DIY fringe garland

For this tutorial you will need:
-Jute twine
-Scotch tape
-Tissue Paper (as many different colors as you wish)
-Mylar (easily found at most party supply stores as “foil tableskirts or garlands”)

1. Cut tissue paper into strips, leaving space at the top to keep together.

2. Twist paper together at the completed section at the top, careful not to fold the cuts of hanging paper.

3. Tape twist-top together and cover with jute twine, making a loop so as to string when complete.

4. Repeat steps 1-3 for other tissue paper colors, and for the mylar. Mylar tableskirt or garland will first need to be cut into 6-10 inch sections before twisting.

5. String together tissue & mylar, cut sections into different lengths if desired and hang in a pretty place!

…And there you have it! Where would you hang this beauty on your wedding day?

Mydolcefarneinte – Weddings and Events in Italy

Dear beloved couples,

Thousand of kilometres divide us and you have to take a very important decision of choosing your destination wedding planner. Yes, i know it’s difficult to do without meeting the person. So, before we can have a Skype call to meet each other virtually, just a few lines about me. I’m a Tuscan soul since 2002, can’t stop thanking heavens for having “dropped” me in this marvellous land. Also for me the reason of moving to Italy was love :)
I’m completely in love with the wedding planning that I’m involved in since 2011. Your wedding is my wedding so if you choose Mydolcefarniente, you choose a highly professional team. I don’t apply the same fee for every event. I give the opportunity to the couple to choose the most appropriate solution for their dream wedding to come true. We work in a flexible way and offer different solutions unless we find the right option that satisfies your needs. We don’t have restrictions because the only things that counts is to make you happy.
Hear from you soon, Yuliya

Something about neon just makes me SO happy — the bright colors never fail to add an extra oomph to my day.

All lovely rentals were from Paper Lion and petal tablecloth from Marianne’s Rentals, and delish cake by Madison’s on Main.

From the bride, Beth: We wanted our wedding to be a celebration of both our love for each other and the love we have for our family and friends. We are so blessed to have an incredible group of people in our lives which is why we wanted to include so many of them in the wedding.

Daniel and I spent our entire engagement designing the wedding. I am fortunate to have just married an incredible graphic designer and Daniel designed our save the dates, invitations, programs, menus, beer favor labels, cocktail menu, dessert table signage, etc. We collected turquoise Fenton hobnail from the 1950’s that was used in the centerpieces and to hold our main wedding cake, this was the inspiration for our use of aqua in the wedding.

I brewed all of the beers that we gave away as wedding favors, and Daniel and I dipped them in wax and labeled them. I made the cupcakes and custard tartlets for the dessert table. I also made the bridesmaid’s hair pieces, rosettes for their belts, adorned their vintage purses, boutonnieres for the groom and our fathers,the rosettes for the napkins, table runner for the dessert table, and the ring book, amongst other things. This wedding was definitely a labor of love! My very good friends of The High Five Factory made the backdrop for the photo booth, all of the instant photos guests took throughout the night were incredible!
