My very beautiful and smart friend (Meli) is going away to Law School this upcoming week!!  Last week as we were all hanging out we decided that we should have a goodbye party/craft night. Of course, I volunteered to plan the whole event! Andy knows how crazy I become when I plan things! Lucky for him he was away for three days so he missed it! haha

I took this craft night event very seriously! It took me days and hours to plan, organize, and buy everything. I truly enjoyed the whole process!

After a lot of research and planning I decided that the craft for the night would be tissue paper garlands. I had seen them around Instagram,blogs, and Pinterest for quite a while! The materials were very easy to find, it was not very time consuming (for the most part) and I figured it would look adorable in Meli's new apartment!

I am not going to explain step by step how we did these because we just used the HGTV blog as a guide! I recommend using that website as well! At the end of my blog post I will write where I got all my materials! The only step we changed was instead of using hot glue to keep together each tassel, we decided to use small hair rubber bands to tie them together.

Here are some pictures from the night! You can check out some more videos and images here -> #TheFunCraftEvent
