Confettisystem look-a-like DIY

I'm not exaggerating when I say that I have been dreaming of one of these for over a year now & I know I am not alone...

I luv the colors and ahh the texture, don't get me started on the texture...I wanted one before my lil' man was born for his nursery, but the $130 price tag seemed a little steep for me to pay for tissue paper...however, I do believe these creative little bugs over at Confettisystem deserve every penny they earn ;.) So for the last year I have been trying to figure out how to make my own. I viewed some DIY's on other blogs and they were pretty, however, just not quite the look-a-like I needed. With such a special occasion as Oliver's first birthday coming up to serve as inspiration, I decided to tackle these lovely tassel garlands this weekend during a 'practice run' for his big day decor! This is what I was able to come up with...

I was super pleased with my first attempt & I know I posted tons o' picks but I just had to let Olly play with them and capture the moment..it's part of the I am a new mommy syndrome ;.) So I thought you might want a how-to just in case you want to save the money and make your own like I did. The best part is that each tassel only takes 1 piece of tissue paper, so depending on how many you want on your garland and how many separate color packs you purchase, the total cost is completely in your hands. So click here if you're interested in the how to...wooo whooo!


  1. Love it! Your little man is adorbale!!

  2. The project turned out great! Nice going! And I CAN NOT believe how much Olly has grown--WOW.

  3. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the pics of Oliver! The tassles are nice, too - but the baby takes the cake! Signed, proud Grandma!
