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!
