Got to get Spicy to make this thrifty tassel and fall decorations – thanks to the local thrift stores !

I have always admired those decorative tassels and wanted to try making one myself…..This one cost me about 3 bucks -

043

First – steal a plastic lid from one of your spices – ya know the 50 cent ones are the perfect size….

031

I have lots of fabric from quilting….so cut off some 1/2 strips and use some kind of twine (I used jute) to tie in the middle.

Poke a hole – (I used my hubby’s screwdriver ) in the middle of the cap. Thread the tie that you bundled the fabric with, through the hole and double knot tightly.

Next , get some ribbon and heat up your hot glue gun and make some loops and glue the outside of the lid.

Find something to glue on top – an ornament or such. I used this pumpkin, I bought for a dollar at Michaels .It was not an ornament and impossible to stick a hole through. I hot glued a ribbon holder to the back and then hid it with leaves and a small bow.

I added the fancy smanchy fringe to the last layer – you will need 1/4 a yard – I found Hobby Lobby to be the best price – about $1.50

There are some great tutorials out in blog-land if you search…….I am in the process of making some others and will post at another time.

035

I bought this stand a couple of months ago at the GW – it was $9.00 and I really didn’t want to spend that much …on the underside it has an original price tag of $70 bucks…..I just fell in love with those curves. I hated the finish but, as always my trusted partner – Mr. Spray Paint was by my side….

008

039

I already owned the cloche and have been looking for a bottom for months…I love the result.

001

Since I have few more weeks of no heavy lifting – tassels are permitted  and fall flower arrangements….. I think the cat and pumpkins are going bye-bye for a pretty ribbon… I found this arrangement at the thrift store –it was covered up by fake spider webs on a displayed – Yes, I have no shame – I saw it was $ 3.50 (half off day) and I removed the webbing and plopped it in my cart. Remember that thrift shopping is treasure hunting – look high and low – scavenge, people !

020

024

The ceramic piece was a couple of bucks and another arrangement…

026

I

027  Here is a candle stand, I added a pumpkin (from the thrift store and made a ribbon – that I bought a spool  from the dollar store. )029

This scrolly thing I posted this earlier this summer – I think it is going to be a great any season flower holder. I used dollar store ribbon and dollar store flowers.

019

See, I even replaced my wall plates with brown and white transfer ware – all from the thrift stores…

028

The top of the armoire – dressed up for fall  !

Rita @ Goodwill Haunting said...

Great post~thanks so much for sharing the how-to for the tassel! It came out great! Went to the thrift store this week & found a great candleholder they had on top of a rack. Cashier made me put it back because she said it was for their halloween display!! It even had a price tag on it. Told her they need to put up a sign that says "for display". Unbelievable! Anyway, I'm going to try making some tassels instead! Thanks for sharing.

Shirley said...

I love your tassel. What a great job, can't believe it's your first one. I'll have to try one. Beautiful arrangements.

Sharlotte said...

Hi Kammy,
You left a comment about finding silver on my recent post. I just wanted to give you a quick tip...I usually look on the back of each piece for anything that says silver. It's usually International. They are also a bit heavier than regular stainless. On larger pieces FB Rogers is a brand too. Sometimes is just says Sterling. Good luck finding pieces! Enjoy your Monday!

Chari said...

Mornin' Girlfriend...

Just read your sweet note...so very nice to see you, Sweetie! Sure hope that you're feeling better and better!!!

So stunning!!! Okay...Girl, you are so creative and talented...I love your new autumn tassle...it's soooo pretty!!! And again, it looks fabulous against the black furniture! You did great!!! Thank you so much for the tutorial too...I definitely want to try my hand at these! Ohhh...and that beautiful ornate pedistal that you found at GW...spectacular!!! Ohhh yes...I would have scooped that up without any hesitation! Hehe! It's perfect for your cloche!!! And I love your big wire box/basket...its autumn florals are sooo pretty!!!

Well my dear, you have certainly outdone yourself and your home looks absolutely fabulous in all of its new autumn finery!!! Sooo pretty, Kammy!!!

You were asking about the photo effects. No, I haven't purchased a photo software. Just used Photobucket's effects. I used Flickr's mosaic maker for my new header photo. You can download these very easily and they're both free! I have had so much fun playing...hehe! Thank you so much again...for coming by and leaving such a sweet note!

Have a marvelous Monday, Sweetie!

Enjoy making your tasels and please share when your finish.

Kammy, we have to hit them together next 50% off day. I was over at ARC earlier in the week but didn't find really what I was looking for/needing/wanting. SO I was good.

I need to get to the Loveland GW--are you finding the prices at Savers and ARC a bit...'escalated?'

Your tassel is awesome, and I love that cloche stand redo, too!! Simply lovely, gal. Don't you just love fall? My house is all deck out in fall except they have been slow getting mums in down here so my front area isn't quite finished.

Hope you have a great week!
Thanks for sharing your ideas!!

Heidi said...

Hi Kammy,
I just discovered your site, thanks for stopping by mine the other day!
I love the tassel - you are so creative with all your Fall decorations, got me inspired to start a little bit of Fall around here, but it's still too warm...I'm waiting a bit longer.
BTW - while I do find the occasional great bargain at our GW - you must have one that posts way more reasonable prices. I'm envious of all your steals! The footed stand, and the plates are fab!
Hope you are feeling much stronger now. Take good care of yourself!
Come back for a visit when you can.

I had thought of that ~~ what to wear home from the hospital. I was thinking about wearing sweats. :-)

I'm home early to get ready for tomorrow. I'm so sleepy. I have not been sleeping well and the pain likes to come at night. I have to be at the hospital at 5:45am.

I hope I lose weight too. That would be WONDERFUL!!!

Will talk to you in a few days. Hugs

Debbie @ The Shabby Bungalow said...

Wow your tassel is fab. I love the cloche arrangement as well - the stand you have re-done is fantastic :)

gina said...

I love the pumkin on a candlestick idea- I'm going to try that!

Debbie said...

Thanks for the nice comment. I love your fall decor too. I have always wanted to try a tassel myself, just wasn't sure where to start, I might have to try that one. And, I love cloches, yours was perfect for that pedestal you found. Nice. Debbie

santamaker said...

Wow you have really had your creative hat on! Love the tassel and your thrifty cake stand that you sprayed black. Your pumpkins look great. Thanks for coming to the porch...the gourds are fake, but I'm glad that you had to ask if they were real or not...I guess that means they are a good fake! :)

Sue said...

Kammy, Your house is sporting such "fallness." Love that crazy buzz word that so many bloggers are using! The tassel is so cute. You offer a lot of inspiration to so many, that's for sure. Hope you're doing much much better. Take it easy and listen to your body- don't forget!! hugs, Sue

Wow, this is a great post. I love all your fall decorations, especially the black wire basket with the fall arrangement. You whole home is so attractive. The pedestal for your cloche turned out great. You have inspired me to try and make my own tassel.

BTW, I had a hysterectomy, too. Take it easy. I feel so much wonderful afterwards and only wish I had it done years earlier.

Claudia@DipityRoad said...

I really like your tassle.

Hey there! Doing pretty good today. I took a pain pill yesterday not because of the hysterectomy but my back hurt so bad. Seems okay today. No plans for the day except to be lazy. What are you doing this weekend? I kept telling John it looks like rain. He said it would not but that looks like rain to me out there. He's so silly! Hugs
