Twine Tassel


Simplicity makes me happy. I like simple projects that I can finish quickly and enjoy immediately. When I saw this project for a tassel made from twine on the blog DIY by Design, it was love at first sight. You might find things like this hanging from all kinds of places in my home - doorknobs, hooks and cabinet doors. I think they add a bit of unexpected interest, texture and fun to any room.

The step by step instructions can be found here and I was able to easily follow along. Putting the tassel together took no time, but unraveling the twine was actually pretty time consuming. Still, I finished the project in a little over an hour and would love to make some others. This would be a great rainy day project this summer.

As soon as I finished, I knew just where I wanted it to go. I think the neutral color looks great hanging from the door of this cabinet in my dining room. It provides a softer texture next to the glass and wood and makes things less formal.

It is going to be a beautiful day here today - hope yours is great!
