Dazzle with a tassel… everybody is doing it! We adore to adorn dangly accents from curtains to coats. This season, tassels are popping up all over the place. Burberry’s big and bold tassels throughout their Fall/Winter 2011 Collection, inspired a DIY that is to DIE for. From their boots to their bags, we’re utterly taken by their stunning and rich leather tassels.
It’s on: to make bold tassels reach for a leather-like material. Cut 2 rectangle pieces approx. 16” x 6” inches. Use a marker and a ruler to draw straight lines, which will transform into future fringe. Leave a 1” inch space from the top and mark lines spaced 1/4” inch from from each other. Use fabric scissors to cut the leather. Once cut, glue the cord to the inside of the fringed fabric on one end. P.S.- make sure to glue on the inside, not the outside of material. Continue to glue and roll the fringe and cord together. Hold in place for a few seconds until the glue sets. Once rolled to the end, either tie tassels onto a bag handle or use a super strong tape to secure on the inside of the bag. P.S.- You can remove tassels and tie onto just about anything and everything in your closet or home. Get creative. Take the plunge and take to the tassel!
As I posted back in July or August here (4 projects and an amazing supply source for tassles), tassles aren’t just for your Grandmother’s curtain tiebacks anymore!
