Rainbow is my Favourite Colour - Tassel Time!!

Hi everyone,

It's a bit Brrrrrrrrr here in Norfolk this morning - but it's cosy indoors so that's ok :o)

Last night, I made a rainbow ...

A couple of friends had given me a whole lot of embroidery threads, and they've been really useful for adding stitching and texture to various projects, but I thought it would be fun to have a go at making my own tassels. I started by cutting suitable lengths and laying them out in rainbow order, jut because I coudn't resist ...

I LOVE that, just as it is :o)

The tassel tops came from AliExpress, very cheap, less than a couple of quid for a bag of 100. You can see them in the pic below ...

It would be great to make some really fat tassels too - I must see if they have any chunkier tops. I think these would be great mixed with beads and whatnot to make charms for mini books and they're slim enough to add to scrapbook pages - I've seen jewellery made with them and they'd be cute on a gift tag too wouldn't they?

There are lots of tutorials on YT showing you how to make tassels in various ways, but this was really easy - just laying the threads onto sticky tape, rolling them up and sticking them into the tassel top. There is a little loop at the top which you can use to attach the tassel to your project.

What would you use tassels for? :o)

Thanks for stopping by today, see you again soon

Love Annie xxx


These are so sweet! And I love the title too! So happy and bright! They would look great on tags! I usually order Chinese stuff on eBay, but I'll check out Alibaba.
Just noticed that Alibaba is different from Aliexpress. They're selling the same things as Ebay, but perhaps even cheaper! Will definitely try them!
