Did you see my guest post on You Are my Fave with a fun DIY garland. It is plastic, reusable and you can use a dry erase marker on it to write whatever message you want. Go see!! This is one of my favorites! Super versatile.
Yo. What’s up. Today I wanted to share the easiest tassel tutorial ever. I give you: Easy Sequin Tassels. I made these for my balloon Valentine’s but they could be used in so many other ways. I would love to get a gift with one of these cuties. Or hung on a Christmas tree!
I like how these sequin tassels are a little bit looser than a normal tassel. And that they don’t require you to wrap things tight around your hand so it gets stuck and you feel like a nerd trying to get it loose. Or maybe i’m just doing it wrong…They way I did this tutorial, you make two at a time.
The main supply that you might need to order for this craft is the sequin trim. I picked this up at Paper Mart (hey Orange County – their warehouse is in Orange and you can will call your orders. HUGE! Your welcome.) Then you just need yarn or string to tie them off and scissors. Nothing complicated about this.
You can even make them in to a garland. This one is totally whack but sometimes that is just how my crafts go. I was too lazy to dig around my garage for the perfect thing to hang them from. But you can see the potential and if you are so inclined, make it better. I also like things messy so I like the pop of color from the yarn ends. Feel free to trim it off if it offends you. This couldn’t be any easier, right?
Hi there. I don’t usually post on weekends but I decided to share with you all the Easy Hanging Balloon craft I’m hosting at Craft with the Bloggers today! I think balloons are awesome and are totally underused. They are cheap, they are easy to keep on hand and you can do so much with them.
All you have to do to make a hanging balloon Valentine is grab a balloon and find something pretty to hang it from…Another favorite material of mine is yarn. It comes in EVERY color and is cheap. Hmmm, it sounds like I am a cheap skate. Totally not. My husband would vouch for that. I just hate when you buy something and then you don’t want to use it because it was so expensive.
Add whatever embellishments you would like.
Who knew they made peach feathers! And it is hard to see from this picture, but this clear balloon is filled with sequins.
All you have to do to get sequins in a balloon is to insert a funnel. With the help of a skewer you can get them through the hole and in to the balloon. Another idea would be to write a small love note, roll it up and put it inside the balloon so your honey has to pop it to get it out.
My idea for the hanging balloon Valentine’s is to hang out them outside a closed door so it is the first thing they see when they get up in the morning. I think that would be a delightful surprise.
These can also be made for birthdays or other special days. Just remember, if these balloons pop it’s going to rain sequins…For some that is a dream, but to people like me who are mess averse it could be tear inducing.
Thanks to Lauren for helping me shoot this! It is so much easier to shoot with two people!
