I made my first tassel today! This was a fun and very inexpensive project.
I said earlier that I wouldn't have any new home decor posts this week because I was busy making Homecoming mums, but during one of my many trips to Michaels to pick up mum supplies I purchased this cute Fall pick on sale for 99 cents. So I decided to take a break from the mums and craft a quick and simple tassel. First, I glazed the pick with a little brown metallic glaze.
Then I used an empty plastic ribbon spool to make the base of the tassel. I hot glued the pumpkin pick to the spool. Then I started gluing fringe I had leftover from various sewing projects to the spool. I used a gold eye pin from my jewelry making supplies and some leftover ribbon to tie my finished tassel to my entryway lamp.
The only cost I incurred was the pumpkin pick for 99 cents because I had everything else on hand! This is a great way to repurpose leftover fringe that is too short for other projects.
