tassel main 2

 

I love these tassels! They are super easy to make and are a really nice way to adorn anything from bags to cushions and curtain tiebacks. As they are made with garden string they are a bit more robust than ones made from wool. I have two tied to my back door key and the keys for the summer house. They are so large and bright that I never have to worry about losing them …

To make your own simply follow the steps below.

Scissors
String I’ve used one from Nutscene, they have loads of bright and cheery colours to choose from and these rolls are £3.60 each.
