You can make fabric tassels out of a fabric preferably cotton or chiffon. It is highly recommended that the fabric should look the same on both sides when you fold the fabric. Make cuts in the fabric about an inch apart stopping around 2-3 inches before the fold.

Unfold the fabric and roll it from the center. Continue until it forms a tube with fringe at the end. Ensure that the role is as tight as possible. Fold it in half,and pinch top together so the fringe ends meet and the edge of the fabric is hidden between them.

Use a dinner plate to trace out a circle on the brown paper. Find the center of the circle and draw a wedge using the ruler and pencil. Draw two lines out from the center to create that wedge. Cut out the wedge using scissors in order to create the cone template.

Draw parallel lines using the brown marker all over the circle until they create a crisscross pattern of a waffle cone.

Inflate balloon and attach to the waffle cone. Fill the balloon with helium and tie it off with ribbon to a flat surface. Wrap the brown paper, around the ribbon. Make sure that the cone squeezes the ribbon at the bottom.

Take two liners and using a glue stick, glue the two points together. Hold tightly together for about 30 seconds, then set aside. Glue two more together and hold tightly. Repeat this step until all of the liners are glued into pairs.

Glue the pairs together at the points and hold for 30 seconds, repeating this on the other side. Ensure that all the pieces create a full circle. Give it time for a few minutes in order to allow the glue to dry completely.
