Tuesday Treasure: Pink Beaded Tassel with Hearts

Valentine’s Day is coming! Now is the time to purchase your beaded tassels for Valentine’s Day. Today I want to share my pink Valentine’s ornament tassel with you, beaded with dark pink glass hearts. This beautiful ornament will look gorgeous as the final topper on a wrapped present, or it makes a sweet gift all on its own. All tassels from my shop ship wrapped in purple felt, so you don’t even have to rewrap them if they are gifts.

Fun New Craft Supplies

As the new year begins, I am planning my new tassel projects for this year. I went to the craft store today and bought some supplies for some beautiful art tassels.

Tassel Craft SuppliesThese are going to be bigger and better tassels like you’ve never seen before! Stay tuned for the results in a few months. (And, if it all works out right, I’m going to be making a line of tassel centerpieces based on these, too!)

Help me find a craft supply!

Help! Last summer, I bought some fabric-covered napkin rings at a garage sale. I (with a friend’s help) took the fabric off, and inside were plastic rings that open and close, kind of like a shower curtain ring. I would like to recover the rings with new fabric (with more help from my patient friend — can you tell I don’t sew very much?) and make more napkin rings, as well. The ultimate goal here is to be able to add tassels to these fabric-covered napkin rings and sell tassel napkin rings in my Etsy store. But I have a problem.

I only bought 8 napkin rings. So I only have one set of napkin rings to recover. (And to make matters even worse, when I took one of the napkin rings to a craft store to see if they sold something similar, the employee helping me managed to break that ring. So I actually only have 7 rings.)

This is a photo of what I am looking for: a napkin ring form that opens and closes? Do you know where I can find one?

I am absolutely positive that somewhere in the world, napkin rings that open and close and can be covered by fabric are being sold. (Besides at random garage sales in my city.) However, I cannot find that place. I have looked extensively online, I visited 2 craft stores and 1 big box store, and I cannot find them.

If you know where I can buy these, please tell me in the comments or email me. Thank you. {No spam, please. Serious comments only.}

I am willing to order online, both in the US and internationally. I am also willing to shop locally. I would like to spend no more than 50 cents to 1 dollar per ring, plus shipping. But I am willing to spend more, if necessary.

Tuesday Treasure: Autumn

The weather is getting cooler, the kids are going back to school, autumn is in the air! At this time of year, I love to surround myself with the colors of the season — rich browns, ripe reds, glowing yellows, and deep oranges. I love the contrast between the crisp air and blue sky and the rich, earthy colors the land and plants take on.

Celebrate those beautiful colors with these lovely beaded tassels from Lizbeth’s Garden.
