I have to admit I have a little bit of an obsession with tassels at the minute. I want to put them on everything and I even made a few cat toys with them the other day. Too much? Nada! – Sparked by my tassel craze and this absolutely stunning Mexican inspired material provided by Zazzle, I made my own table runner. I love how it fits so perfectly with this months fiesta theme and I am so excited to get my hands on more Zazzle fabrics soon, their custom collection is the bomb! I have soooo many favourites but right now but my current faves are this Girly Kitten print, these pink flamingoes and this colour block fabric! Seriously guys have a mooch around over there, it is a haven for wedding supplies as well as craft.
Check out these simple steps to making your own tassel inspired table runner and before you know it, you will be adding colourful tassels to just about anything 🙂
You will need – Wool// A sturdy piece of cardboard (cut to the size you would like your tassels – remember, the larger the surface area the larger the tassel)// Scissors// A Table Runner (we made our own)//
To Make Your Tassels!
Step 1: Continuously wrap your wool around your cardboard, until you have a thick bundle and cut off at the last strand. Remember the thicker the bundle the fuller your tassel will be.
