Sari Silk Christmas Tassels ...

Hello my dear friends,

I should have shared this post months ago when it was still July and therefore "Christmas in July" was still that time year and when I made what I am sharing today but for some reason I didn't get to it but like I sometimes say, it better late than never.

I was up early again, sitting quietly drinking a cup of tea, wanting to be creative but not knowing what I really wanted to do but that didn't last for long thankfully. I don't know what made me think of my newest making but the thought of Christmas in July just wouldn't get out of my head, so I gave in. I love to combine different things but still keep it simple but then also beautiful and then again maybe even a little rustic. I basically wanted a bit of every look I love and to use things I love. Easy but also a little difficult at the same time to balance it just right with the right bits and pieces. I have made tassels before just not as Christmas tree ornaments and I think I have found the right balance for my Christmas/Winter sari silk tassels. I like that the don't shout out Christmas but just gently tell you it instead. I used some sari silk ribbon in a beautiful shade of rich cream and a hue of pale blue in a few places. I combine it with hemp string and gold eyelash yarn from Martha Stewart. I added a golden colored larger pine cone charm and because of Christmas, I also added some little golden jingle bells too. I am so pleased with the way they have turned out, everything is just right and I like the look of them so much.

And this is what I came up with ...

I made one set of 4 of my Christmas tassels as of right now and it is now available in my Etsy shop.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting me here at Todolwen, it is always so nice when you do.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.
