Christmas Tassels, Project 52-34

I spent an afternoon working on a project that I have had in mind for awhile.  I think tassels are such a creative addition to home decor and wanted to make some Christmas tassels.  I used this helpful tutorial at kmckaydesigns.com.

I had picked up 3 ornaments on sale last year, and various fringe and ribbon to use for this project.

First, I used E600 glue to attach some candle cups to the ornaments.

I added fringe to the inside of the candle cups using my hot glue gun.  I even made my own fringe from some yarn for the snowman tassel.

Then I added ribbon cut into various lengths and loops until I got the desired effect.

It was fun trying to get just the right look.

By the time I got to the last ornament, I finally had
the process down & this one was my favorite one. 
I think the black & white ribbon just made it so cute.  Think I am
going to make some for Christmas gifts (shhhhhh, don't tell)!!
