Tassels, Tassels and More Tassels

Made using a Warren Kimble Cat Statue.
These are all tassels that I have made over time. I really enjoy making them too. The sweet ones here I made using cat statues...

        I found an old header at at garage sale for $5. I painted it white and distressed it. I then attached old black door knobs and hung it in my stairwell. I have all kinds of tassels hanging from it. You really have to click on the pictures to see more of the details.
This tassel was a piece of wood that I painted first.

This was a curtain rod finial and a wooden napkin ring that I painted.

At one time, Hobby Lobby sold wood blanks for tassel making. I painted this one.

Found this piece of wood at a garage sale for 25¢. I painted it and made this tassel.
Here is a snowman tassel I made...Sorry it's blurry, but it's cold here!
I found many vintage jello molds at garage sales. Most I have painted for a Christmas tree that you can see here. However I did take one and made this tassel out of it.

I found this sewing machine ornament at Hobby Lobby one Christmas. So I made a tassel out of it for my sewing room.
This is made from a painted wood candle cup. He's a tiny guy.

This one is made with a polka dot drawer knob.

This is another tassel wood blank that I painted.
I just found another picture of one I made for a friend...

I find that a tassel can be made out of just about anything. The newer ones are made using ribbon. I think they are cute and add ornamentation to a room, a piece of furniture or just bring joy to the eye. Terry
