My First Attempt At Tassel Making
I stayed up last night attempting to make a tassel or two. I am happy with how they came out. It was a little easier than I thought and I could become addicted to making these. I think they would make great gifts too!! I found this wooden pear at one of my favorite antique shops on Friday. Afterward, I went next door to Hobby Lobby and got ribbon and fringe. Maybe if you click on the picture you can see more detail. I used various ribbon and ric rac as well as the two different fringes.
I also got the little birdie at the antique store. He was slightly trickier as he doesn't have a loop to string the ribbon thru at the top. I first tried hot glue. When that didn't work, I used Liquid Nails. Now if LN can hold a seat on a riding lawn mower, surely it can keep a piece of ribbon attached to a bird. Well, I tried to put the bird picture until this type but it is proving to be difficult. I tried to highlight and pull it down, but it turned into a long line of letters and numbers.
I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions about my tassels. I know they are not Susie's or Nester's but I am pleased with them.
Hope you all have a fabulous day!! I'm off to do laundry and vacuum. Oh, and feed the children...
