In order to make the indoor egg hunt a little more festive, use tissue paper scraps, a little twine and some washi tape, to whip up some adorable mini tassels. Then hang the tassels from a tree branch. It’s bright, cheerful and just plain adorable.
Find a Branch
Go on a hunt for a branch. Full disclosure: I used the “hunt” as a sneaky way to enlist my daughter’s help to pick up some of the sticks around the yard before declaring one as THE PERFECT BRANCH. I then used a tall vase and some sand as an anchor for my branch.
Cut Tissue Paper
Cut the tissue paper into 3" x 5" pieces. Tissue paper makes perfect tassels, so grab whatever spring-y colors you have on hand. You’ll also need some washi tape, twine or ribbon, and scissors – bonus points if you have fringe scissors, because that will save you some time.
Fold in Half
Fold the tissue paper over once, lengthwise.
Use either the fringe scissors or regular scissors to cut thin strips, but stop cutting 1/2" from the fold.
Open the tissue paper back to original size.
Starting at one end, roll the tissue paper all the way to the opposite end.
Cinch in the Middle
Tie a 6" length of twine or ribbon around the center of the rolled tissue paper.
Bend Around Twine
Fold the rolled tissue in half at the string.
Wrap Middle With Tape
Wrap a short length of washi tape around the rolled and folded tissue, just below the string. Then tie a knot in the top of the string to form a loop to hang on the branch.
Repeat Several Times
Repeat the steps until you have made enough tassels to deck out your Easter tree.
