Four ways with tas­sels

Take a plain cush­ion and give it a fun new look by at­tach­ing on­trend mini tas­sels. Us­ing a nee­dle and thread, we sim­ply sewed 20 colour­ful tas­sels, at ap­prox­i­mately 8cm in­ter­vals, around the pip­ing. This was quick and easy and the end re­sult is so ef­fec­tive.


Great for birth­day par­ties or out­door en­ter­tain­ing, this plain white cot­ton table­bloth now has a fun, fes­tive vibe to it. As with the cush­ion, we sim­ply sewed mini tas­sels onto the edge of the ma­te­rial, plac­ing them ap­prox­i­mately 10cm apart all the way around.


This sim­ple and colour­ful gar­land was made in 20 min­utes by ty­ing mini tas­sels onto twine at about 6cm in­ter­vals. You can make the gar­land as long as you want. Use it to add a sense of fun to a child’s bed­room or birth­day party.


Us­ing a large darn­ing nee­dle and thread, sew mini tas­sels around the top of a lamp­shade, ty­ing off in­side the lamp. We used 10 tas­sels, placed about

8cm apart.
