Playing with Tassels

I've seen some beautiful handmade tassels out here in blogland and I've been inspired to try to make a few of my own. Let me just say, I. Am. Addicted!!!

These things are so much fun to make! The possibilities are endless as to what you can do. Here's two I've made so far:

I purchased a package of two wooden finials from Lowe's for less than $3 and had hubby screw an eye hook in the top of each one. Then I spray painted one blue and the other one black to match my ribbon that I used on these tassels. Hubby uses a type of tape at his job that comes on a two inch cardboard spool. He brought me home a gallon sized freezer bag full of these things and they make the perfect base for my tassels. I just hot glued my finial onto the cardboard spool and then just filled it in with the loops and strands of ribbon. So simple and so fun! I have purchased a couple more of the finials and I've also found a cute little fairy that I'm going to turn into a tassel as well.

I can't believe that Easter is only a week away! I had so many projects in mind that I intended to make, but just haven't gotten a chance to really work on them much this week. I'm hoping to get at least a few of them done before Easter actually gets here!

Until next time. . .
