DIY Candy Garland

I have a huge sweet tooth, so it is near impossible for me to resist a good candy garland. There have been some really fun ones here on Oh Happy Day in the past  too: candy lights garland, cotton candy garland, and jelly bean garland. Use any color tissue paper to whip up this sweet little garland for your next party.

Supplies: Various colored tissue paper, toilet paper rolls, scissors, string, ruler, glue stick (optional).

Step 1: Cut the toilet paper rolls in half.
Step 2: Cut pieces of tissue paper into 7″ squares.
Step 3: Cut 6″ lengths of the very thin string – you’ll need two pieces for every toilet paper roll.
Step 4: Cut a piece of regular string to the length you want the garland to be. Slide a toilet paper roll on like a bead and place a tissue paper square under it.
Step 5: With the toilet paper roll centered, roll the tissue paper around it and apply a small spot of glue to gently hold it in place. (You can also just hold in place by hand if you prefer.)
Step 6: Gently gather and crunch the excess tissue paper on both ends.
Step 7: Use a piece of thin string to tie each gathered end and cut off any excess string.
Step 8: Repeat as many times as desired!
