"A" for effort?




I have long admired The Nester and Susie at Bienvenue (at the left under friends) and their tassel making talent. As I would never attempt a "real" everyday tassel, I thought "how could you mess up on a scary Halloween one?" So here is my first and probably last attempt at this art form of tassel finery. I found a whole bag of these skeleton heads at The Dollar Tree and had some scrap trim lying around and it matches my candle stick "jewelry". By the way I am not usually a creepy Halloween person but my 15 year old son informed me that he is a little tired of the scarecrow and pumpkin "baby theme" he has had to indure his whole life...so this is for you Trevor!
