This season, tassels are popping up all over the place. Burberry’s big and bold tassels were seen all over their Fall/Winter 2011 Collection which inspired a DIY to DIE for. From boots to bags, tassels give that extra jushh to anything.  We just love that PS I Made This is offering a cruelty-free way to take on the trend for less.

It’s on: to make a bold tassel reach for leather-like material. Cut 2 rectangle pieces approx. 16″ x 6″ inches. Use a marker and a ruler to draw straight lines, which will transform into future fringe. Leave a 1″ inch space from the top and mark lines spaced 1/4″ inch from from each other. Use fabric scissors to cut the fabric. Once cut, glue the cord to the inside of the fringed fabric on one end. P.S.- make sure you are gluing on the inside, not the outside of the material. Continue to glue and roll the fringe and cord together. Hold in place for a few seconds until the glue sets. Once rolled to the end, either tie tassels onto a bag handle or use a super strong tape to tape on the inside.

You can remove tassels and tie onto just about anything and everything in your closet or home.
