Make Pretty Watercolor Rainbow Tassels


Materials you need:

  • Coffee filters
  • Water-base Markers (Crayola works great)
  • Spray bottle
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • String


How to make your own Rainbow Tassels


  1. First make the rainbow paper. You can find a full tutorial to make watercolor art on my blog here. The quick run down: color coffee filters with markers, spray the colored filters with water until the ink bleeds together, let dry.
  2. To make the tassels, fold each dry coffee filter individually into a small triangle as shown in the image below. First fold in half, then fold in half again, then fold in ⅓ in one direction, flip over and fold the other ⅓.
  3. Cut the triangle into strips from the widest end of the triangle towards the point, but do not cut all the way through.
  4. Pinch the point of your tassel and wrap tape around the end to hold the entire tassel in place.
  5. To use the tassel to decorate, you can either tie string around the end or use a small hole punch.

You can make these tassels in any color you’d like. You can color the coffee filters in multiple colors, or just use a single color, it’s up to you!
