The Tassel Trim Wreath

I've been having a fun time tasseling lately. I think I'm a tassel addict as they are so fun and easy to create. When I went to stock up on tassel fringe and trim, there was a lot of beautiful trims on sale. I just had to buy a lot. Of course now I have a huge bag of it to sort through every time I want to create a tassel. This ended up a good thing though as I had a light-bulb moment with the green trim. I did not own a wreath and it got me to thinking about creating one.

You Need:
  • 12" Styrofoam wreath shape
  • 2 yards of green trim (you'll probably have some leftover to tassel with)
  • straight pins
  • ribbon to hang it with... I used 24" of black and gold ribbon

To Create:

  • Starting at the outside edge, start pinning the trim to the wreath base.
  • Pin every 2-3" to secure well
  • Once the first circle is completed, spiral trim until you have completed 3 passes and wreath is covered.
  • Fluff up trim and enjoy.

So what do you think? I'm having fun with it and it looks so pretty and festive. It's fun to find beauty in the supplies you already have.

Have a great weekend!



  1. I love it! I never would have thought to use trims, but why not! Some of the colors are so great for Christmas.

  2. Very cool idea. And I get the tassel frenzy. I just finished one for a blog Christmas swap. They are so much fun.


  3. Very pretty! Who doesn't love fringe? I could see a lot of different uses for this idea.

  4. Love the wreath! What a great way to use trim.

    Made the chicken bruschetta tonight for dinner and it was a big hit. We had two guest, 8 and 9 years old, and they cleaned their plates. My 22 year old wants the recipe when she moves out next month. We love your recipes :)

  5. Wow so clever - I love the green trim you used - It looks fabulous! Happy Holidays!

  6. What an awesome idea! I love wreaths and I love tassel trim...never thought of combining the two. Looks great! ~Lisa

  7. I absolutely love this idea! Kicking myself for selling fringe in a recent yard sale now.

  8. I LOVE this, J! I wonder if I can find some green trim like that....I'd love to make one! You're just so darn creative! :)

  9. Love this idea. You are amazing. Thanks for the inspiration.
