I created this simple Tie-On Tassel using a PSA Essentials Stamper on cloth! Pretty awesome, huh?
Tassels are an easy to make, home décor staple and being able to personalize them with stamps allows you to incorporate them into the signature look or theme of any room.
For this tassel I ripped up an old cloth diaper (we’re talking really old, think: super thin, birdseye cotton), stamped it, and tied it up with a bit of gray tulle, creating a wonderful vintage look. Keep reading for more tips!
For my stamp I used the Black Ink Refill, the Fleur-de-lis stamp from the Frenchie Peel and Stick stamp set, and the Stamp Centering Block Tool.
The ink dried extremely well on the cotton but the fabric does stick to the stamp. (When they say that these things never loose their stick, they mean it!) That’s where the Stamp Centering Block comes in handy. It’ll help you line up your stamper AND keep your material from being sucked up into it.
Once you have your material strips stamped it’s time to pull together your tassel. Like I mentioned before, this is the easiest kind of tassel there is to make because you just gather your materials and tie them onto anything that needs a little something extra!
We have an old cigar box filled with all kinds of keys. There’s something intriguing about a key, they are the embodiment of mystery. What was it used to lock; a dresser, chest, or desk? How old is it? Who’s hands held it? And of course, what kind of secrets did it hide? For all the wonder they incite, keys are so much fun to decorate with. Try hiding one in a bookshelf or behind a plant…it’ll keep everyone guessing!
