Super Fab Tassels: Texas Sized

My Aunt K & Aunt G came from Ohio to visit a few weeks ago.  Mom was telling me about these tassels they made and honestly, I was like yeah … yeah … yeah … I knew they would be awesome but I wasn’t expecting what she brought me.  Whoa! I was totally blown away!! These tassels are more than fabulous!! 

They used the instructions from Hobby Lobby {HERE}; however, they wanted their tassels to be “Texas Sized” & decided to use a water bottle as the middle of the tassel.  Once all of the fabric strips/ribbon were adhered, they added all kinds of junk jewelry, rolled flowers, or just whatever.  I can’t wait to make my own but I am lucky because Mom gave me the blue one.  What a great way to use up fabric scraps and any kind of other junk.

I LOVE the Texas Size! I've made smaller tassels before, but they don't even come close to the impact of these!
