I have been seeing tassels everywhere, on shoes, purses, all over home decor, EVERYWHERE! As the saying goes, if you can’t fight it, join it, and that is just what I am doing with this very easy DIY tassel necklace.
ps. I might have a tassel addiction now, so you might see tassels again soon.
I’m always on the lookout for ways to bring three-dimensional art to my walls. Believe it or not, with the amount of wall hangings I make, I only have two in my apartment because I love to give them to my friends as gifts. However, the wall space above our dresser has been looking particularly sad and in need of some love, so I took the opportunity to create something quick and simple for myself. I also took into consideration that our bedroom is usually pretty dark, as we live on the first floor sort of at the bottom of a hill and have no overhead lighting in that room. I wanted to make something cheery without being overwhelmingly colorful to brighten the space up a little. These airy tassels made out of beautiful watercolor-esque fabric were the perfect solution. Not to mention, the tassels I made use a new process I discovered and are about a hundred times easier. No complaints here.
Another case of “I want this but I don’t want to pay that ridiculous price tag.”
Recently, while browsing a home goods website, I came across a garland made of adorable little vintage fabric tassels and pretty string. Of course, the easy-to-make and not entirely hard to conceptualize art piece came with a high price tag. Time to get to work.
While spending too much time on Pinterest the past few weeks I have noticed one craft trend that I did not expect emerging to the foregrounds, tassels. I have become surprised with all of the possibilities for these colorful additions. Whether it’s jewelry, home decor, or sprucing up old accessories and clothing, tassels are becoming a craft trend that I can full-heartedly get on board with.
This Fringed Yarn curtains uses tassels in a new and inventive way. An easy way to add color and some personality to any door way. I love the shape it creates, and that it gives the perfect excuse to buy more yarn.
