Hey ladies it's tassel Thursday... Whoop whoop! Okay, so if you follow me on Instagram you may have seen my post about the tassel tapestry I made. I wanted to share my first DIY project for you guys, don't laugh.
I am no Martha Stewart and I have the attention span of a Labrador. So this project took me a month to finish, but in reality should have been done in one day.. But whatever.
- Three or more colors of yarn
- A rod or stick, my nine year old brother found this stick for me!
- Gold or whatever choice of spray paint
- A book
- A pair of scissors
Step One - wrap one of the string colors around one of the books about 20 times.... and pour the wine.
Step Two - String a loop, about 3" or 4" long, between the wrapped yarn and top of the book.
Step Three - thread the loose end through the loop and tie.
Step Four - Cut the wrapped yarn at the bottom of the book.
Step Five - wrap yarn at the top, about an inch long.
Step Six - tie wrap.
Step Seven - tie a string, through the loop at the top of the tassel. I kept the strings long so I could play with the layout!
Cheap and easy! No need to spend $50 plus at Urban or Target, make it your own!
I wanted a very messy look to the tapestry, yet you can create it however you like!
I hope you enjoy, and make one yourself!
