It’s the second Wednesday of the month which means it’s time for another Monthly DIY Challenge. This month we teamed up with a fellow bloggy friend, Kenarry Ideas for the Home, to use her Burlap Ribbon that she recently started selling on Amazon. I’ll be totally honest, this was a BIG challenge for me. Burlap isn’t really my jam but I was determined to make something that still blended with my style. So I came up with these cute little DIY Burlap Tassels that I think turned out pretty good!
All you need is the burlap ribbon and some scissors and you’re ready to get started. Unroll your ribbon and then cut off both sides of the ribbon up to your desired length.
Then cut across the ribbon so you have one long strip of burlap.
Start pulling the shorter pieces off in small groups.
Until all you’re left with is a big pile of the longer strings.
Gather them all together and fold them in half.
And then use one of the smaller strings to tie it around the top about an inch or so down and cut off the excess.
Repeat until you make all the tassels you want! I looped mine together onto some thicker string but you can use whatever you want.
Then I attached them to this little belly basket we have in our bathroom!
I love that these challenges always push me out of my comfort zone to make things I probably never would have to begin with. My love affair with tassels started with my DIY Giant Tassel Throw Blanket and certainly hasn’t slowed down since 😉
