Tassels seem to be everywhere lately, and I don’t hate it. Here’s a fun and summery tassel DIY for you! I’m normally not one for super bright colors, but when summer is just beginning, I get excited and wear the most summery things I can find.
I found this awesome tutorial for making mini tassels using a fork! Learn to make the tassels from Flamingo Toes here.
I got the hat a few years ago from a random beach-side shop while I was on vacation in Florida and thought it needed some life brought back into it. The hat probably wasn’t meant for this, but I have been wearing the front and back tassels! What you do will be up to you! That’s the beauty of DIY and creativity.
You Will Need the following:
- Small scissors.
- Needle and Embroidery thread in the colors you choose.
- A hat. You could very easily thrift one!
- A fork.
All I did was take an old hat and hand-sew the tassels I made onto the blue cloth part. You could sew them right onto the hat; you have to make big enough knots so that the thread doesn’t slip right out. You could also take a rectangle of fabric and tie it around the hat if your hat doesn’t have one already.
To sew the tassels in place, I passed the needle through the piece of thread, knotting the tassel together, and passed the needle in and out several times before knotting it at the end. You could also add some Fabric Glue to ensure they don’t fall off.
Since learning to sew, I’ve been getting into all fiber arts, and I’m excited I can make these tassels now. I’m planning on also making my pom-poms and some DIY pillows with fiber arts techniques. What techniques are you guys into lately?
Pin me for later!
