This is such an easy diy…
It all started when Abi found this gorgeous wee piece of driftwood at the local harbour up at my mum and dad’s the other week. We pondered over a few things we could make with it (Pinterest is such an inspiring place for this kind of quest!) and, after much deliberation, settled with a tassel mobile.
This is a photo tutorial, as I think the steps are pretty clear but there are a few notes at the end. If you have any questions, please feel free to add them in the comments below…I’d love to hear from you.
We did 3 tassels and hung them from the driftwood, the centre one slightly higher than the outside pair.
*I cut the card to the size I wanted my tassels. I wanted them pretty big so, it follows, if you want dainty little ones, then keep your card smaller.
*I cut quite a long piece of wool to tie the top of the wool on the card. This gave me the length to hang the tassel from the driftwood.
*When tying any knots, I fed the ends down into the tassel where they blended in with the rest of the wool. Similarly, with the gold thread, after I had wound it round, I fed it down into the main part of the tassel and cut the threads to a similar length.
*I tied a knot above the bead to keep it in place but that is entirely up to you.
