Cranberry Star Tassel

Christmas is coming…. quick*ly! Here’s a way to spread the holiday cheer without extension cords, instruction manuals, batteries, lightbulbs, or hammers! :) Yes, I enjoy making tassels. They’re too easy! {and cheap! this cost $1.25 to make.}
*And no, this is not the super awesome project I was talking about yesterday. My computer has H1N1….just kidding. But it is sick. When I get my computer back, I can upload the pics of my fab project. And let me tell ya, I’m dYiNg to show it  to ya!*

Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When I'm not DIYing something, I can be found taxiing around our 4 crazy kids or working out. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥

    I have to admit I haven't really been on the tassel band wagon with everyone else but I think I just grabbed hold of the tailgate…this one is really cute!! My mind went spinning with all kinds of Christmas tassel ideas when I saw it! Thanks for sharing!!

    On a side note…it means a lot that you keep asking about my craft blog so just a little update: I FINALLY picked a name and as soon as I'm done with a rather large cleaning project I'm in the middle of (garage selling my excess scrapbooking supplies!) I will sit down and put the blog together! STAY TUNED….

    This is really cute. I just picked up some materials today at Hobby Lobby to make some tassel's. I haven't made one before but I've been inspired by posts like yours!
    I agree that you should do a tutorial.

    Excellent. Really looks great. Why don't you link it to my blog tomorrow? I'm having my first ever boardwalk bragfest. That project would be perfect! Of course, I love the pillow with the grocery sacks too. Oh what the heck, link them both (haha) Can you tell I love your stuff?

    This is cute and I love the price! I think crafts with cranberries are really pretty, but they can get kinda heavy. So this is the perfect size :0).

    Hi Linda,

    I love your tassel and it turned out beautifully, and you certainly can't beat the price. :) I would love to see a tutorial on how to make one. You are the craft queen and I always enjoying viewing your site to see what you've created next.

    Thanks for commenting on my blog, I appreciate it. Now you'll have to forgive me, but what is a blog swap? LOL! I'm so new to blogging that I am still learning the terminology. I'm sure I would be interested, but I thought I would ask.

    Tassels ARE inexpensive to make, if you shop around. I wonder why they are so expensive on etsy?!
