Christmas Tassel

I am sooo excited to get started decorating for Christmas!  This is my favorite holiday!  Metallic reds and greens speak to me and make me happy.  I have a great love for tassels!  I remember admiring tassels as a child while shopping with my mom.  The practical side of me saw no absolute purpose in tassel, yet I loved them.  Imagine my surprise when I came across several blogs devoted to tassels and included tutorials.  SOLD!  I quickly got out my box of unused ribbon from my attempts of making bows for my daughter.  My first attempt was not up to my standards.  But I did not give up.  While shopping this weekend I found the cutest cupcake ornament that screamed, "make me into a tassel!"  So I followed those instructions found on the blogs and away I went.  I must say, I was pretty happy with the end result.  I know I can still step it up a notch with trims and nicer ribbon.  I can't wait to scourer fabric stores and yard sales for reminents to play with.  I have visions of gifting these this Christmas!  Let me know what you think of my little creation!

Here is my favorite blog with a tutorial on tassels! Enjoy!
