GUYS, I MADE SOMETHING. I could have bought it off Etsy but for 36 dollars (including shipping) but I decided I could make it for cheaper.
Well, it was cheaper. It’s also uglier. But hey, I DON’T CARE because I made it myself for my son’s birthday photo shoot and party and it’s going to go beautifully with his birthday onesie. I had some help with the craft along the way but overall it was my vision and execution. It is certainly not Pinterest-worthy but I’m damn proud of it.
I won’t include a detailed tutorial because I’m not the person you want to follow for this craft. I recommend watching a Youtube instructional video; the ones I found were very helpful.
My color scheme was mint and silver with neutrals and pink for a pop of color. There is something fresh and sweet about using a typically thought of girl color in a boy’s photo shoot. Ignoring gender norms for the win!
Cousin Jo helped me cut, The Mother helped me cut, and The Scottish helped me cut. I hate cutting and I’m terrible at it. It’s embarrassing how bad I am.
This tassel below was cut by Cousin Jo and looks great!
Since my tassels would not stay in place on their own I used tape to adhere them to the cording. It looks really pathetic up close, but it was quick and easy. That’s how I craft or I don’t craft at all!
Now I have all this extra tissue paper in other colors… I might have to make a tassel garland for something else! Or not. Haha.
