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

home decor diy


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?)


  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!

Cheers-  Ashley Nicole

  • Here is some advice for all my SINGLE LADIES out there! 
Earlier today, I had a discussion with some younger co-workers of mine and I feel like you may relate and probably need to be told this so keep reading! One of the girls stated that she’s never had a good relationship and wanted to meet a nice guy. 
Another girl made a remark about the kind of guys she dated when she was her age and then asked me what kind of relationships I had when I was the other girl’s age and I told them the truth. I dated a very nice guy for 4 1/2 years when I was her age. At one point, I honestly thought that we would marry someday, but I was so young/still trying to figure out who I was and what I wanted my adult life to be like. Eventually we didn’t agree on the same things and grew apart. It ended well and I wish him well. Later after I had a few relationships, that also did not last and it was all for good reason. I feel like I was able to learn something from my past relationships that allowed me to be ready when I was meant to meet my husband which I have been married to for 10 years now. So the next time you look back at those past relationships and you’re looking for a nice guy, just know you’re one relationship closer to meeting the one and when you do you will know it and you will be ready for it! Just know your worth and never lower your standards because you feel like you have to to make it work. Always stay true to yourself because if you’re not, it will not be you they have fallen in love with. Like @arianagrande sings...Thank you, NEXT!

  • Lately, I’ve been reading a ton of wellness articles about the benefits of collagen powder and how women in their 30’s produce less collagen naturally which can start to effect your skin and so on. Ever since I read that. Ive been wanting to give it a try... The one I chose to put to the test is called Gym and Tonic and it’s a collagen protein powder by @tonicproducts 
I started adding 2 scoops into my blueberry banana smoothies in the mornings which has been so great because I’m guilty of never eating breakfast unless it’s brunch or brinner and I’m always rushing to get out the door and to work on time! 
Not only is it free of soy, dairy, gluten, and artificial hormones, but you can also rest assured that their ingredients have all been responsibly sourced. And here’s the bonus, it contains 18 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce on their own which combined will help with hair, skin, nail growth, joint pain, and good gut health! Winning!

So glad I finally tried it, and I will def be adding it into my daily routine. 
P.S. I’ve shared a Mango Smoothie Pop recipe in my stories/highlights that this would be perfect in x beating the summer heat with a sweet treat! 😉
