10 ways to incorporate a tassel on your project



It's no secret that I LOVE tassels. In all forms. I love that you can add soft, swishy movement to a project by adding one. Or how pretty it looks in a planner. Why, yes... you are right, I do have a collection of tassels - a mix of happy vibrant colours....even though I will always have a weakness for white tassels...Here are 10 ways to incorporate a tassel on your project. :)

1. Add a classy touch to a vintage-inspired tag.

I wanted to make one of those timeless and elegant tags so I went with a muted colour palette. The white tassel was glued down at the top so that the bottom part swishes when you move the tag. :)

2.  Colour it to match your project.

The flowers and tassel on this project started out pink but were misted a shimmering lilac to create contrast and depth.

3. Let it look pretty in your planner.

Hang a tassel or two in your planner. They can serve as a page divider or just look pretty in your planner. :)

This cute little leather tassel from Maya Road really goes well with vintage ephemera.

5. Accentuate a vertical design.

Except for the pink blooms and leaf, the monogram consisted mainly of white on white embellishments.  So the tassel provided another textural element while accentuating the vertical line of the letter.

6. Draw the eye to the focal point.

The tassel helped to guide the eye through the densely decorated mixed media canvas.

8. Dress up the tail ends of a hanging project.

Instead of beads or ribbon, use tassels on your wall hanging.

9. Serve as a bow companion.

Fish tail ribbon ends are pretty but oh-so-normal. Why not let a tassel be your bow companion? *winks*

10. Be a playful interactive element on a mixed media canvas.

I created this mixed media canvas as a functional decorative piece. You can hang bracelets or trinkets from the door knobs, switch out the photo and notecard and play with the hanging tassel.

There you have it...10 ways to incorporate a tassel on your project. Which one is your fave?
