This begins a series of finds from the Big Box.
Starting with tassels I found for under $8 at Wal-mart. You can find them in the same department as you find curtain rods. That is a great price for these approximately 8 inch tassels. I find similar ones other places starting at $10.
What can you do with tassels? They complement a traditional or transitional (contemporary furnishings that lean traditional) decor. You can: put them over your door knobs; use them for tie-backs for window treatments; put on Christmas wreaths instead of bows; or hang from chandeliers...the possibilities are endless.
This tassel (pictured below) is used to tie a towel to make a sling to hold another towel. What an easy and unpredictable way to dress-up a guest bath.
While you are at Wal-mart looking for tassels, you can also pick up the Little Book of Tassels, by Danielle Chiel, to inspire your tassel creations.
