Handmade tassels

Handmade tassels: I’ve just tried them! Whatever you want a keychain, a wall decoration or handbag accessories, tassels are so trendy now…and I had no idea that they were THAT easy!

You actually just need scissors, cardboard, some thread or yarn (scraps are great to make tassels!)

I tried with that cotton thread and used a cardboard from a ribbon that I bought, it was the perfect size for the tassel that I wanted to make. You can also use forks or other cardboards from packagings. Always think about recycling something first!

Done! I added some wooden pearls

Handmade customized tassel

I used the first one to customize my halfmoon handbag, remember that one? Give a boho touch and it’s easier to use the zipper.

I have seen so many cute crafts with tassels for each season, for Halloween you can create ghosts with handmade tassels and they can also make a nice decoration for Christmas, like ornaments for the Christmas tree 🎄.

I usually have lots of scraps from thread and yarn that I will be using for different decorations,and I will try to make some of them with the girls,it could be a great fine motor skills activity!
