Happy Cinco de Mayo! This holiday makes us exceptionally happy, as the colors, cacti, and cocktails involved are just so FUN! This year we decided to indulge in a craft we have been eyeing for quite some time...door tassels! Sure, you might be thinking that these look somewhat like dream-catchers, but think of them more as a necklace for your doors. After all, no one (even inanimate objects) should be shorted their accessories.These are relatively simple to make and the more you get into it the more you'll realize that cheesy can be extra cute! Picking out beads was probably the toughest part since you don't really know how it will turn out until the end but you really can't go wrong. Follow along below for a step-by-step tutorial on these little ladies!
What You Need:
- Yarn (the more colors the better!)
- Metal rings (feel free to get different sizes)
Select a substantial amount of yarn in various colors to make your tassels. We went for a neon meets rainbow meets Mexican blanket. Grab some chunky beads as well...these can be any shape, color, and size. We actually scoured the sale bins to find cheap ones that translate really well when the tassels are done.
Follow these super simple tassel instructions to make your tassels. You'll want to make them in all different thickness / fullness and lengths.
Once you have made all your tassels begin to attached them to your ring. You will want to hold them up first to see if you need to shorten any of them before attaching.
After they are attached and you are satisfied with the placement, use more yarn to wrap the ring. You can use 2 colors at the same time or do a color-blocking technique. This is another one of those things that you can't go wrong. Any color variation or thickness will look great!
These Fiesta door tassels add a really fun pop of color to any door that is lacking that little something!
