We’ve had great weather recently, but yesterday it felt cold (despite being almost 20c) and dark and ugly outside. I needed some colour! Off to my project shelf I went.
I’ve had some really fun tassels kicking around since the winter. I found them from a little store on etsy and decided to give them a try. It took them forever to arrive, but since I had no concrete plan in mind yet it didn’t matter. I knew I wanted to do something fun and colourful for summer and these tassels were going to be a part of something big.
I had vision of tassel-trimmed curtains, or napkins or even cushions! and then I realized how little time I seem to have these days and figured I was best doing something quick and cost-effective with them. Enter the bar cart garland with pink twine.
This was such a simple yet cute project and it took me 5 minutes to complete. For my tassel garland diy, I measured how much garland I wanted in order to wrap it around the bar cart, and then got to work tying the tassels onto the twine at roughly equal intervals. I didn’t measure anything, I eye-balled it and kept it funky. There was no colour scheme, no pattern, I just grabbed tassels out of the bag as I went.
I’m pretty anal retentive about having matching and measured patterns, but I also love the effortless chic of “apparently random” colours and patterns. This was my attempt at that. Mind the eye twitch.
Because I love a good close-up detail I thought I’d show you how it wraps around the handle of the cart.
Now I wish I had enough of these to do a massive one for outside during the summer! I’m not sure if it’s worth my time to make all the tassels myself, or just order them in bulk online again. What do you think? We’ve got a huge summer BBQ coming up in June and I will have some fun tissue paper tassel garlands, but I love the idea of a more permanent one.
