It's a beautiful thing when fashion and home decor come together. And after my latest tassel trip (many tassels were made, many storage containers and baskets were spruced up —it's all a bit foggy, many days passed), I decided to shop my closet to see what else I could use the happy, bright beauties on.

Embroidery thread tassels are extremely easy to make —but if you decide to make one, just go ahead and make 30 because they are addictive! They are quick and easy and there are a million different uses for them from home decor to organizational solutions.

What You Need

Materials

  • Any sort of shoe with a toe strap or buckle
  • 4-6 tassels

Instructions

1. Pick a few tassels and lay them out over the area you wish to attach them.

2. Simply tie the tassels in a double knot (triple wouldn't hurt!) around the strap leaving the knot hidden at the back of the strap. Trim the excess strings of the tassels.

If you're working with a shoe that doesn't have a toe strap, you can easily attach tassels to a buckle as well.

1. Unfasten the strap revealing the underside of the buckle where it attaches to the shoe. Tie the tails of the tassel around the loop and secure with a double knot. Trim the tails and the ends of the tassels to your desired length.

There you have it! A cute, "new" shoe for spring or summer that no one else will have!

I used a version of these wedges from last summer —the tassels were just what they needed for their spring debut.
