NATURAL BEADED TASSEL DIY

Good evening guys!  I hope you’re doing well, I just had a great visit with my Mom and got some much-needed mommy and me time in because she is super fun to be around and we just get each other!  When I’m feeling burnt out or lost I get recharged when I’m around her, she is such an inspiration and I wouldn’t be who I am today without her influence in my life!  

While she was here we got to do a little fall shopping.  It’s our most favorite time of year and we both love Halloween so it was appropriate for us to get out and scavenge for fall decor.  We hit up several of the usual stops and were a little disappointed that it was September and Target had barely put anything out for fall or Halloween yet Michael’s had their decor at 40% off and already getting Christmas out… OMG I’m so not ready for that yet!

I did, however, manage to get a tube of natural round beads and some jute twine while we were there.  I’ve been seeing these cool little wooden beaded tassels here and there on Instagram and while I love a good tassel, I think it’s a bit silly to spend $60 on something that will just be laying on a book or possibly show up in my flat-lays unless it’s something really cool and vintage and hard to find.  

That being said, I decided to make one on my own and give ya’ll a quick DIY tutorial on this easy and super cute home decor accessory.  Just check out all the details below and get crafting!

DIY Tassel Home Decor

HERE IS WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

1 Canister of round wooden beads in various shapes

1 Ball of jute string

1 Good pair of scissors

1 Needle with an eye large enough to fit your string.

and some good music playing while you craft (Have you checked out my Spotify?)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Create the pattern you would like to use for your tassel, in this case, I chose to use a large wooden bead and a medium wooden bead alternating the two by placing 4 medium beads in a row per 1 large bead.  On the ends, I choose to leave the larger size bead.
  2. Thread your needle and string the beads in the pattern you’ve chosen.
  3. Leave enough string on each end for knotting and adding tassels.
  4. Create tassels by taking around 10 strands of jute or so depending on how fat you want the tassel also add an odd number to the mix for attaching the tassel.  Cut them all the same length.  Find the center and attach it to the beaded string.  Pull both ends of strings together and wrap the top with an additional strand of jute to create the tassel.  
  5. Attach tassel with the leftover string from the beaded portion and take a string (the odd one) from the tassel and tie them in a double knot.
  6. Do the same to the other end.

That’s a wrap guys!  This is a super easy and affordable craft project to add to your home decor and if you have kids, let them join in on the fun!  Also, this is a great way to bring in tassels without being super summery, I’m so looking forward to this fall hygge!  I hope you enjoyed this post and if you have any super savvy DIY home decor hacks, please let me know about them in the comments below!

  • It’s been a hot minute since my last post, but it’s all with good reason. We’ve been very busy finishing up our guest room/office makeover and I am so excited to share the reveal with all of you! ✨ I’m dishing out all the details over at Cottage-Bound.com.

  • Every little space makes a difference in my opinion. Speaking of making a difference, @auratenewyork is doing something amazing! They are crafting fine jewelry out of raw materials that are sustainable and ethically sourced. Not only that, they also donate a book to a child in need giving you a clear conscious with every purchase. 
Shopping is fun, but when you know your dollar goes the extra mile to help someone in need, the experience is so rewarding!

  • Mercury is finally out of retrograde! Did any of you have any crazy technical difficulties last month? I know I did! Just a reminder that even though it is over, we will still feel a little bit of that static cling from the retrograde which can still have an effect on our day to day for another two weeks. They call this the “retro-shade”, but on the bright side last night we had a 2nd new moon or a “black moon” when there are two new moons in 1 month. 🌚

New moons usually mean it’s time for new beginnings and reflection, but a black moon is especially powerful towards these things. This new moon is rising in Leo a sign known for creativity and will help you to learn how to express yourself in creative ways throughout different houses like your work sector, relationship/love sector and so on. 💫

This new moon will be all about self-expression so listen up and open up! Allow yourself to try new things! 
This new moon will also allow us to see truths that we may have been denying or it hasn’t unveiled itself to us as of yet. This new truth may cause you to want to pick up and start fresh somewhere, with someone or something new, hence “new beginnings.” Another factor under the reign of this new moon is our need to have and create more self-love. 💛 When we are happy and content with ourselves, we are confident, but we also must remember to respect ourselves and our boundaries and expect others to do the same. If not, it’s time to move on to people that value and respect you the way you do. 
Stand your ground and know your worth and don’t let precious time be plucked by those who disagree to give you what you know you deserve. 
This also goes for the opposite side of this equation, so if you are not giving others what you expect for yourself, you may see this action as a response to something you may need to work and reflect on yourself in this new beginning. 
I always say the door swings both ways so don’t expect it if you are not willing to do the same if not more for them. My tip here is as simple as this: The more you give, the more the universe gives back to you and so on as it is always better to give than receive for the rewards are much greater! Cheers
  • When your wardrobe is ready for fall and it’s only July... 😆🍁🥵 I’m so pleased to have partnered with @wayfair to share this cozy corner as another sneak peek of our guest room/office makeover! ✨ 
Because this space is also used as my office/craft room, where I like to keep all the crafty goodies tucked away in the closet, I wanted to offer a place for visitors to hang their items so they felt like a guest and not like they are “crashing in the office.” That’s where this free standing closet organizer comes in. Annnd the bonus part is that when it’s not in use by guests, I get to use it to steam clothes or organize what to pack on trips.

That’s WINNING x TWO and to celebrate I want you to WIN x TWO too by sharing this helpful tip: Did you know that if you turn your sweaters inside out when hanging them you don’t get those weird shoulder humps when you go to put them on the right way? Yep! You can thank my Mom for that one! 😉 ✨Sharing all the shopping links for this on the @LIKEtoKNOW.it app!

  • Sharing a sneak peak of our guest room/office makeover! I’ve been so pleased with how well it’s come together, despite the few hiccups we’ve had in the past couple of weeks. Absolutely cannot wait to share more so stay tuned! 
P.S. This dreamy sheepskin runner by @the_citizenry can double as a cozy accent to your bedding while you go to sleep counting sheep! 😴🐑 #citizenmade #liketoknowit #liketoknowithome #thecitizenry
  • Flashback to an amazing spring day spent brunching and record shopping with a good friend. The weather was perfect, not too hot yet and the mimosas were tall! Things are finally starting to get back to normal around here after some much needed time away gathering and remembering a dear friend whose no longer with us. This event was also an important reminder that life is precious and I should be more thankful for even my mundane days and all the little things that make it complete even though they aren’t super exciting or glamorous, but you know what? When I have a husband happy to greet me in the mornings and two puppies that think the world of me. Suddenly, my life doesn’t feel so boring, it feels like love and that’s how I know everything will be ok and I was meant to be here. ❤️

  • Lately, I’ve been feeling like I’ve been so disconnected... I’ve been healing and I apologize that I’ve not been as lively over here, but I’ve been dealing with my own dilemmas. I’ve had two accounts of death from cancer just recently. One I kind of set myself up for because I knew there was no cure and another that was totally unexpected... it’s been a rough ride, but I’m still here and I’m happy and thankful that I can be there for others during these hard times. If you are dealing with anything like this feel free to reach out to me. I would love to help support you and always sending love and light your way! .
