As I was styling the entryway, I felt like the space was lacking some texture. You might be surprised to hear, but I don't have a lot of "extra" styling vases, decor pieces, etc. I do have a few things, but definitely not a ton. Anyways, tassels are everywhere these days and I've been crushing on them. If I would have thought about using tassels in the space before the day I was going to shoot the space, I might have purchased one or two. But, I didn't think about it, which ended up being a blessing because I got crafty for once and it was a success. So, without further adieu, here's How to Make a Leather Tassel!

First things first, gather your supplies!
Next, decide what size you want your tassel to be.
For my larger one (which is perfect for a doorknob), the fabric size was 8" by 29". I made a smaller one too and it was about 4" by 15".
Cut your fabric to size and then start cutting little strips making sure to leave about ½" at the top that is uncut.
Keep going until the whole fabric piece is looking like fringe.
Cut a scrap piece for the tassel to hang.
Using a hot glue gun, glue the scrap piece in a loop on the inside of the "fringe".
Start rolling your fringe together to create the tassel.
Place a small bead of glue on the end to keep the tassel together.
That's it! Super easy and fun. If you notice on my leather, I have some markings on the larger tassel. My leather piece had some imperfections in it, but I think that only adds to the charm.
Don't want to make at tassel yet you want one? I rounded up some of my favorites!
