Project of the Day- Glass Bead Tassel

During my recent trip to Hobby Lobby, I saw the cutest girly tassel ever! I could of bought it for $12.99, but why should I if I could make it myself. I had everything I needed already so no expense had to be made!


I pulled out my ribbon, glue gun, small styrofoam ball, and my favorite...glass beads. I used the lid from the baby food jar as my base, and just layered the ribbon around it.

I do have to warn you that I had a heck of a time getting the beads to stay put, for every 5 I would glue on, 1 would pop off. I think glue dots would of worked better, but I didn't have any, of course.
I think a perfect touch for my daughter's room.

Thanks for posting--can I get you to add the tassel party or my blog button.

It would be cute to do one with decorative papers under the glass beads too. There are so many options you can do. There are really fun to make. Thanks for posting to the party.
