tassels – take 3
After spending an inordinate amount of time on Christmas paper collage shapes this weekend, I finally got around to making tassels again. Gift giving deadlines are approaching.
This is the third incarnation of this particular tassel and I think I finally have the procedure figured out. The design is fun and unfussy, so imperfections seem to make the tassel even more visually interesting.
The first tassel is made of white nylon twine and embellished with white beads and tiny white seashells.
The second tassel is made from jute and embellished with a variety of brightly colored beads and twisted wire.
The third tassel is made of cotton string and embellished with red beads, a red button and a small charm.
There are lots of tutorials available for making tassels, but if you have any questions about the way I made these, just ask and I’ll send you an email with the particular approach I used.
