gifts for grandma DIY Tassel Magnets funny cushion covers

Happy St. Patrick’;s Day! We have a super easy and adorable tutorial for you today. After making our Martenitsa tassels we got on a kick and tried out tassel magnets. I’;m happy to say they were a great success. You can use them for your fridge, or to give as a hostess gift for a party. Change them up by making them with different colored yarn too. We chose to make ours out of baker’;s twine since they were going to be used in Jaime’;s kitchen.

Fold your piece of card stock in half and begin wrapping your baker’;s twine around.

Continue wrapping it around about 20 times.

Thread a small piece of baker’;s twine through the bundle at the opening of the fold.

Tie it in a knot to secure it.

Remove the card stock.

Wrap a piece of baker’;s twine about a 1/2 inch down from the top and secure with a knot.

Cut the bottom to turn it into a tassel.

Hot glue a magnet onto the back. Let it dry and then it’;s ready to use.

As promised, I am back to blogging after a break to migrate my blog from Blogger to WordPress {more on that here}! I hope you enjoy my new blog design and find it easier to navigate. I am pleased with how it turned out. I would like to extend a HUGE thank you to all of my returning readers! If you are new, thank you for being here. I hope you stay for a while.

The feathers provide resistance and slow the jianzi’s fall, making it easier for younger players to anticipate its landing. But it’s not just a low-skill game for kids; the lightness of the jianzi can give those with excellent hand-eye coordination the opportunity to develop tricks (check this guy showing off with his knees and tops of his feet).
