easter natural wood bead tassel

Add a little Easter accent around your home with this cute wood beaded tassel. They drape perfectly around a vase, basket or simply laying on a table or mantel.
Step 1

Lay out a pattern of wood bead sizes and paint as desired. Let dry and apply a second coat if needed.
TIP: By pre-planning you will only need to paint as many beads as planned. Take a photo of your pattern so you can recreate it easily after painting. Sliding the wood beads onto a chenille pipe cleaner is an easier way to hold the beads and to paint evenly. To let them dry, place the chenille pipe cleaner into a piece of recycled foam or small vase.

Step 2

Cut a piece of twine a little longer than you want your tassel. Wrap a piece of clear tape around the end to help string the beads.

Step 3

Tread on the beads in the order you planned then cut off the taped end.

Step 4

On one end, tie or stitch burlap bunny ornament (or any desired Easter embellishment).
TIP: If choosing to use a pick, simply remove the stick by pulling it out or cutting it off.

Step 5

On the opposite end, make a tassel by winding twine around your hand multiple times and sliding it off. Place the wrapped material next to the end and tie twine around the top to keep it attached. Wrap multiple times and tie a knot. Lastly, cut open the loops making a fringe tassel.
